451 Research Publishes In-Depth Security Study

Report Reveals Strong Information Security Budgets in 2013 for MDM, DLP

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TheInfoPro, a service of 451 Research, released its latest information security study, indicating strong budgets for security projects in 2013. Conducted during the second half of 2012, TheInfoPro study identifies key initiatives of senior information security managers and examines market factors and major players. This annual study is based on extensive live interviews with security professionals and primary decision-makers at large and midsize enterprises in North America and Europe.

Highlights from the TheInfoPro Information Security Study include:

  • Buoyed largely by budget increases at large North American enterprises, security budgets experienced a significant gain between 2011 and 2012 with 45% of respondents noting an increased budget for security projects and personnel.
  • Top projects looking to gain a share of increased budget allocations include mobile device management (MDM), endpoint and network data leakage prevention (DLP), and application-aware firewall implementations.
  • The combined effects of IT Consumerization and the 'Bring Your Own Device' trends have driven Mobile Device Security to take over the top slot as the key pain point for security managers in 2012, going from 11% of responses in 2011 to 15% in 2012.
  • Application-aware firewalls continue to be one of the hottest technologies in the network security category – 8% of respondent implementation is planned for within six months, with another 14% having longer term plans penciled in.
  • Driven by a constant drumbeat of customer data breaches, Endpoint DLP continues to be a top project, with 10% of respondents reporting short term implementation plans.

"47% of security managers we interviewed noted a planned budget increase between 2012 and 2013 with only 8% constricting their spending," said Daniel Kennedy, TheInfoPro's Research Director for Information Security. "Securing employee owned mobile devices is the chief headache for security managers, and 2013 will be a key year for mobile device management implementations – 20% of enterprises report projects underway within the next six months, with another 9% planning implementations in the longer term."

Research Directors Daniel Kennedy and Wendy Nather will host a 451 Research Innovation webinar on December 13th to discuss the report's findings.

Webinar Details:

  • Title: The State of Information Security in 2013
  • Date: December 13, 2012
  • Time: 2 pm ET
  • Presenters: Daniel Kennedy, Research Director, Information Security and Wendy Nather, Research Director, Information Security
