The following report, is based on a global survey of 706 IT and security professionals conducted in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The goal of the survey was to capture data on current attitudes and trends with mobile devices and IT security. This is the third survey on this topic and this report evaluates differences in responses to similar questions asked over the past two years.
Over the past several years, we’ve seen business requirements rapidly evolve and technologies continue to advance, yet the way many companies approach disaster recovery remains at a standstill. Tolerance for downtime is at an all-time low, and many organizations — and particularly their users — expect IT services to be “always-on.” Meanwhile, new virtualization and automation technologies have emerged that can help fill gaps in continuity plans, but many organizations have been slow to adopt them, thus widening the gap between business expectations and IT realities.
