NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TheInfoPro, a service of 451 Research, released its latest Information Security Study, indicating a strong budget for security projects in 2014. Conducted in late 2013, TheInfoPro study identifies key initiatives of senior security managers, including market factors and major players. This annual study is based on extensive live interviews with technology professionals and primary decision-makers at large and midsized enterprises in North America and Europe.
"The 2014 study continues to see security budgets rise for most, but also shows an outsized role for compliance in security," said Daniel Kennedy, TheInfoPro's Research Director for Information Security & Networking. "Thirty-eight percent (38%) of enterprises saw budget increases specifically to deal with compliance projects – the same percentage that reported the most common way for security projects to be initiated was compliance deciding they needed to be done."
Mr. Kennedy noted key trends from the TheInfoPro Information Security Study include:
- Information security 2013 budgets continued a healthy multiyear run. 2014 projects are similarly positive, with 45% of respondents reporting their enterprises will increase spending on security, against only 11% decreasing the same.
- Mobile device management (MDM) is the top source of pain at 18% of large enterprises, but products addressing this function are growing, as their use rose from 46% last year to 59% in this study.
- The effects of last year's acquisitions became evident in this study, especially in the SIEM space, where IBM and McAfee now appear as serious enterprise competition for HP with their acquisitions of Q1 Labs and Nitro Security, respectively.
451 Research will host an Information Security Technology Study webinar on March 19, 2014 to discuss the findings.
- Title: The State of Enterprise Security in 2014, results from 451 Research's 16th annual end user security study
- Date & Time: March 19th, 1 pm
- Presenters: Daniel Kennedy, Research Director – Information Security & Networking

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
