New AlgoSec Study Uncovers Application Connectivity Management Challenges are Impacting Security and Business Agility

Survey findings indicate complexity of critical business application connectivity as well as data center and application cloud migrations

October 29, 2013

Boston, MAAlgoSec, the market leader for Security Policy Management, today announced the results of “Examining the Impact of Security Management on the Business,” a global survey of 240 information security professionals, network operations and applications owners. The survey was conducted to determine how security management affects organizations’ agility with regards to connectivity of critical applications in the modern data center. A key finding in the study shows that while many organizations are planning to migrate critical business applications from physical infrastructure to private, public or hybrid clouds, more than two-thirds of organizations encounter application connectivity disruptions or outages during data center migration projects.

“Critical business applications fuel today’s data centers, but security teams lack visibility on how security activities impact the business,” said Nimmy Reichenberg, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, AlgoSec. “As a result, provisioning connectivity for data center applications is time-consuming, severely hampering business agility and increasing the risk of business disruptions and security breaches caused by errors in firewall configuration… and as our study shows, these challenges are magnified when migrating applications or entire data centers to the cloud.”

Key findings from “Examining the Impact of Security Management on the Business” include:
