Annual Worldwide Network Infrastructure Security Report
Arbor Networks®, in cooperation with the broader operational security community, has completed the seventh edition of an ongoing series of annual security surveys. This survey, covering roughly a 12-month period from October 2010 through September 2011, is designed to provide industry-wide data to network operators.
Focus and Value of the Report
The survey output serves as a general resource for the Internet operations and engineering community, recording information on trends and employment of various infrastructure security techniques. It also provides the direct observations, insights and anecdotal experiences of respondents that may be of value to others.
Operational network security issues—the day-to-day aspects of security in commercial networks—are the primary focus of survey respondents. As such, the results provided in this survey are intended to more accurately represent real-world concerns than theoretical and emerging attack vectors addressed and speculated about elsewhere.
All survey participants are directly involved in network security operations at their respective organizations and/or make direct contributions to the global operational security community.
Arbor’s longstanding relationships and reputation as a trusted advisor and solution partner make this annual survey and report possible. The report offers a rare view into the challenges of network operators on the front lines of a global battle against botnets and DDoS attacks. It is designed to provide data and insight that will enable network operators to make more informed decisions about their security strategies to ensure availability for mission-critical Internet and other IP-based infrastructure.
