Vormetric, a leading data-centric security solution provider, recently announced the preliminary findings of its “Protect What Matters – Data Security” research. The results, compiled from a global online survey of more than 450 respondents, details newer IT trends and data breaches as primary security drivers. The research also highlights that protecting brand reputation and observing security best practices should be an organization’s primary motivators for data protection, while meeting compliance requirements also remains a major driver facing IT today.


“The security landscape has evolved considerably over the past 18 months. With advanced persistent threats recurring headline news, and as more organizations embrace the merits of cloud computing and Big Data, it is essential that enterprises ensure their IT infrastructure is geared up to keep pace with the changing market,” said Tina Stewart, vice president of marketing, Vormetric. “We wanted to conduct this research to assess the extent to which organizations’ security measures and motivations reflect these changes, and overall the study reveals that organizations are reassuringly starting to move in this direction.”

The online global survey gathered responses across a full range of markets – banking/financial services, retail, manufacturing, public sector and others.
