The results of a Tufin's survey of 140 network security professionals reinforce the fact that enterprise application connectivity-related issues are now driving the vast majority of firewall changes. However, few of them have effective processes in place to account for this shift, and almost one fifth said they don't have any processes in place for managing enterprise application connectivity-related firewall data at all.
31% say their organization may have had a security breach due to an application-related rule change, and 64% experienced application service disruptions (due to network configuration changes) up to 10 times per year.
These findings and others like it highlight the business case for SecureApp and reinforce the case that Application Connectivity Management is no longer a 'nice to have', but a 'must have'.
