CSO Survey - Declining Security Confidence

Recently, Fortinet asked IDG Research to survey executive-level enterprise decision makers in different regions (US, UK, Hong Kong, and Singapore) about their current IT security concerns and priorities. Here is what is top of mind in 2016.
    Security overconfidence is on the decline—and that’s a good sign. Organizations are becoming more aware of the challenges posed by today’s evolving threat landscape. Among their specific findings:
  • Advanced persistent threats (APTs) remain a priority in 2016
  • Protecting customer data from cybercriminals is also a top concern
  • Virtual appliances are trending as a preferred method for deploying network security
  • Next generation firewall (NGFW) utilization is higher than ever across all regions
This two-page report looks at executive-level priorities for IT security initiatives in 2016, as well as the surveyed values of NGFWs within today’s threat landscape. Register now to download the 2016 CSO Survey
