Gartner latest security survey results

#92 According to results of a new survey released yesterday by Gartner, Firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, and antivirus software are the high-priority defenses information technology (I.T.) managers are pursuing this year to combat I.T. security threats.

Organizations are more concerned about viruses and worms than any other security threat. Outside hacking (cracking), as well as identity theft and phishing also are considered significant issues. In addition to firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, and anti-virus defenses, other spending priorities in I.T. security include patch management, strong user authentication, remote access, vulnerability assessment, user provisioning or identity management, security event correlation and reporting, spam filtering and Web-site filtering or blocking.

More than half the respondents said they preferred buying "best-of-breed" products from multiple technology providers. Multivendor suites integrated under a common framework were preferred by more than one-third of the survey participants.
