The State of Enterprise Security Resilience - An Ixia Research Report

Ixia, an international leader in application performance and security resilience technology, conducted a survey to better understand how network security resilience solutions and techniques are used within the modern enterprise. While information exists on security products and threats, very little is available on how it is actually being used and the techniques and technology to ensure that security is completely integrated into the corporate network structure. This report presents the research we uncovered.

During this survey, there were three areas of emphasis exploring security and visibility architectures. One portion of the survey focused on understanding the product types and use. The second area of emphasis was on understanding the processes in use. The final area of emphasis was on understanding the people components of typical architectures.

This report features several key findings that include the following:

  • Many enterprises and carriers are still highly vulnerable to the effects of a security breach. This is due to concerns with lack of following best practices, process issues, lack of awareness, and lack of proper technology.
  • Lack of knowledge, not cost, is the primary barrier to security improvements. However, typical annual spend on network security is less than $100K worldwide.
  • Security resilience approaches are growing in worldwide adoption. A primary contributor is the merge of visibility and security architectures. Additional data shows that life-cycle security methodologies and security resilience testing are also positive contributors.
  • The top two main security concerns for IT are data loss and malware attacks.

These four key findings confirm that while there are still clear dangers to network security in the enterprise, there is some hope for improvement. The severity of the risk has not gone away, but it appears that some are managing it with the right combination of investment in technology, training, and processes.
