What’s the top priority of local IT decision makers?

“This investment needs be strategic and will primarily be targeted at protecting the network and sensitive data through a combination of integrated solutions.”

Australian CIOs have for the first time cited Security as their top concern across all areas of IDC's 3rd Platform technology pillars: Big Data, Mobility, Cloud and Social for Business.

“With a fast-evolving threat landscape and Australia being one of the top target countries for attackers, Australian companies must invest in security to protect their intellectual property and other assets,” says Lydie Virollet, Software and Security Market Analyst, IDC.

“This investment needs be strategic and will primarily be targeted at protecting the network and sensitive data through a combination of integrated solutions.”

A plethora of recent high profile global security breaches has raised the stakes, causing Australian executives to reconsider the exposure and risk associated with corporate assets.

According to Virollet, and of note to New Zealand organisations assessing the local market, security is now a boardroom discussion.

In parallel CIOs are reassessing security requirements across technology, people, and process to meet the needs of a borderless enterprise and the increasing value placed on data.
