For instance, over half of the respondents, 54%, chose security breaches as one of the top challenges they face, while 52% are also struggling to increase bandwidth requirements. Looking ahead, 58% plan to focus on reducing downtime, outages, and system failure. Security, reliability, and scalability seem to be at the forefront as organizations work to keep their networks up to date.
