IDC Survey Spotlight: Security as a Top Network Challenge for Enterprises
This IDC Survey Spotlight demonstrates the main IT and network challenges that enterprises are facing on their path to digital transformation. The document contains data from IDC's European Enterprise Communication Survey 2019. The purpose of the survey was to gain insights into the business and technical challenges, priorities, and strategic objectives of enterprises with respect to their networks and approaches toward communication and collaboration. The survey gathered detailed replies from 1,056 respondents across a wide range of industries.
"Security remains the number one network challenge facing enterprises, although challenges related to regulatory compliance and data protection also rank high. The implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on May 2018, has compelled organizations to transform their business operations. Moreover, the proliferation of endpoints and the rise of multi-cloud platforms and edge computing are adding complexities that enterprises need to address." — Senior Research Analyst Ksenia Efimova, IDC EMEA Telecom and Networking
