Ten years of research. Ten years of insight from those who work on the front lines of the operational security community. This year marks a decade of Arbor surveying its customers on the challenges they face on a daily basis. The report was once dominated by service providers, but over time, as Arbor has grown into the enterprise and other markets, so too have the respondents to the report.
Today, the breadth of the report covers network operators across provider, enterprise, government and education sectors. The number of respondents has grown from 36 to 287 today. While some things have changed greatly, mostly related to the threat landscape, many things remain the same. On the operational side, staffing, budget and process challenges have remained stubbornly consistent. Needless to say, it has been an amazing experience tracking the changes and challenges facing network operators around the world.
We asked the four authors of the Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report to share the data point(s) that stood out the most from the survey data published in the tenth annual report. You can read their thoughts in the latter half of this blog post.
