Protection is still the main driver for security, but a new study 1,425 senior IT and business executives reveals that organizations understand the application economy demands a new view and approach to security.

About half, 49%, of respondents say mobility has a big or significant impact on security practices and policies with respect to customers. A new view toward security and the protection and enablement it offers has sparked an increase in security investment. According to respondents, 25% of all IT spending will be devoted to security in the next 3 years, up from 18% today.
