Latest Security Technology Market Research Study From 451 Research

Compliance Is a Major Driver of Security Budgets in the Wave 16 Information Security Technology Study

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.

Webinar Details:

  • 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

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
