Global Development Reports Highlight Security Differences
SANTA CRUZ, CA, November 10, 2003 - Evans Data’s global development series, comprised of its flagship North American Development Survey, Asia/Pacific Development Survey (APAC) and Europe, Middle East and Africa Development Survey (EMEA), has found that the incidence of security breaches vary widely by region.
The three surveys, conducted simultaneously in September 2003, found that APAC developers’ companies are much more likely to experience a security breach with 79% of developers reporting at least one security breach in the last year. Fifty two percent of companies had three or more security breaches and 5% had more than 50!
The number of security breaches in EMEA continue to be an issue but are less severe than in APAC. Fifty seven percent of developers’ in EMEA reported that their companies experienced at least one security breach in the last year. Twenty three percent had three or more breaches and only .2% had more than 50 breaches in the last year.
Developer companies in North America fared slightly better than their EMEA counterparts with 54% reporting at least one breach. Twenty six percent reported three or more security breaches and 1% reported more than 50 breaches.
"These security findings from the global survey series highlight just one of dozens of data points that can be compared across the global development landscape," said Brian Cooper, Evans Data's director of research. "This means that any technology based company with global aspirations can know what the technology environment is like in each of the regions. Our global series does just that, Evans provides the road map."
