50% of enterprise WAN managers are adopting Zero Trust Security but only 8% have implemented it

TeleGeography, a global telecommunications market research and consulting firm, has released its annual WAN Manager Survey: Cloud Connectivity & Network Security Report. The report reveals an opportunity for enterprises to further integrate networking and security and adopt new models to prevent data breaches.

According to the survey, less than 20% of enterprises have fully or mostly integrated network and security teams. More than 40% have separate teams but work closely together on things like SD-WAN or hybrid network adoption. 15% have largely siloed networking and security operations.

“Enterprises are re-evaluating where security responsibilities sit within their IT operations. They are looking at greater integration between security and networking teams that will reduce risk while accelerating the adoption of networking technologies like SD-WAN. WAN Managers recognize the need for stronger relationships between these teams and we anticipate fully or mostly integrated teams growing over time,” said Greg Bryan, Senior Manager, Enterprise Research at TeleGeography.

Interest in Zero Trust Security remains high among WAN managers, while only 8% have actually implemented the IT security model. 31% are considering Zero Trust Security, 19% are in the adoption phase with a fifth of respondents unfamiliar with the concept.

Zero Trust Security is an IT security model where, by default, no user or device is trusted inside or outside of the network. It offers policy-based controls rather than a legacy “castle and moat” architecture. It has been designed to prevent enterprise data breaches.

“Zero Trust Security is making the move from buzzword to serious consideration. WAN Managers recognize the opportunity in going beyond legacy models and exploring the potential of Zero Trust Security in their organizations,” said TeleGeography Analyst, Elizabeth Thorne.

“The challenge for CIOs is to understand the foundations necessary to make ZTS a viable security solution. For example, in order to have user or device-based security policies, you first need to identify every user and device on your network—no small task for many enterprises. Regardless, any time a new architecture is proposed there will be hesitation and a period of assessment before adoption ramps up.”    

The survey collects around 100 responses from companies ranging in size from SMEs to Fortune 500 enterprises. It includes in-depth interviews with 15 respondents across 2018-19 to contextualize survey answers.

Participating companies had a median annual 2018 revenue of about $7 billion and most were multinational in scope. In addition to security, the report covers Wide Area Networking (WAN) technologies, data center trends, and cloud adoption.

Japan’s SBI Holdings Makes a $20m Strategic Investment in OpenLegacy

SBI’s investment accelerates its Internet banking and Moneytap initiatives while opening the door for OpenLegacy to the world’s second-largest mainframe market after the United States.

Tokyo-based SBI Holdings, the leading Japanese financial services company, has made a $20 million strategic investment in OpenLegacy, the market leader in microservice-based APIs for legacy and core systems.

SBI has made the investment based on OpenLegacy’s long-term technology promise as well as to accelerate its own digital transformation activities, using OpenLegacy’s technology to spearhead two key strategic efforts: building Internet banking across SBI’s growing portfolio of Japanese banks, and instituting Moneytap, a blockchain-based payment application in Japan and globally.

“OpenLegacy will enable our portfolio companies to quickly launch digital innovations, integrating, leveraging, and extending our legacy systems in a fraction of the time, all without changing the underlying systems,” said Yoshitaka Kitao, SBI Holdings President & CEO.

OpenLegacy’s platform is already being leveraged by Fortune 500 companies like Citi, Liberty Mutual, FIS, and BNP Paribas-Cardif, to name a few.

The solution reduces the time, cost and risk normally associated with digital transformation by connecting directly to legacy systems, automatically generating microservice-based APIs, and deploying on-premises or in the cloud. OpenLegacy reduces total cost of ownership by bypassing layers of middleware and delivers digital services without changing the back-end legacy system.

OpenLegacy further enables seamless integration into existing or new DevOps pipelines because of its compatibility with modern code development practices. Furthermore, by working with the development team to generate custom-built templates, site-specific standards can create consistently robust services at an unprecedented speed.

“SBI’s use cases demonstrate the range of achievements that OpenLegacy’s technology makes possible,” said Ron Rabinowitz, OpenLegacy’s President.

“The investment opens the door to Japan, the world’s second largest mainframe market. It is an important milestone in our global expansion; we’re now serving the world’s top clients across the United States, Europe, LATAM and Asia.”

Companies investing in privacy programs get best returns: Cisco report

Different data protection laws and privacy regulations are emerging around the world. Nearly all organizations today recognize the need to meet the data regulatory requirements as there are strict penalties for noncompliance with it.

To come to terms with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), organizations are actively investing in privacy programs. Some organizations who were initially afraid to invest had doubts if their investments in privacy could yield positive returns. But, according to a report Cisco 2020 Data Privacy Benchmark Study, the returns on privacy investments are positive.

For this, Cisco organized a survey that covered responses from 2,800 respondents in 13 countries, out of which 2,500 knew about privacy in their organizations. Respondents were asked to provide the size of their total annual spending on privacy, as well as the impact of it on their business based on the following tangible and intangible factors:

  • reducing sales delays
  • enabling agility and innovation
  • making company more attractive to investors
  • mitigating losses from data breaches
  • achieving operational efficiency from data controls, and
  • building loyalty and trust with customers.

The results revealed that the organization’s average spend on privacy was $1.2 M and the return they were getting back was $2.7 M. That makes privacy investment a wise decision.

Combining the data on privacy investment and benefits, for every dollar a company spends on privacy and regulation, it receives $2.70 worth of benefit. In the survey of all the companies, almost half (47%) are seeing more than twofold return and more than 30% are breaking even. Only 8% have reported they received less in return in terms of benefits.

Robert Waitman, director of Privacy Insights & Innovation at Cisco, noted that privacy regulation has been a major factor that has driven companies’ efforts to protect their personal data. Strict actions and fines on noncompliance is another motivator.  

More than 50% of the brands are ready for GDPR. 41% will be ready in one or more than a year, while just 3% have said they don’t feel GDPR applies to them.

“Companies that have become a little more mature and accountable from their privacy programs are getting their best returns. We have talked about $270 return on a 100, if you are investing a little more in that curve, it’s going to be $310 on that 100,” Waitman said.

However, he said companies could see their ROI drop should they have to comply with a variety of 50 U.S. state laws, as this will become complicated and would cost high for privacy programs to attach to laws with different requirements.

As more and more organizations are moving in this direction, they will need to adopt simple processes to show their customers how their data is being used and adopt technology solutions to adhere to the regulations in order to gain trust and transparency.
