For network managers, security the top "pain"
Concerns about security have become the greatest source of worry among network managers, a recent study has found.
According to a 451 Group study, security challenges were considered the top networking-related “pain point” for the majority, 22 percent, of management. After security, the other top networking-related concerns were capacity issues, which garnered 19 percent of votes; budgeting, with 18 percent of responses; and network monitoring, which accounted for 13 percent of votes.
In its eight year, the study was based on 155 interviews with IT professionals and key decision-makers at large and midsize firms. Released Aug. 15, the study was completed in July.
