NSS Labs 2018 Security Insight Study

AUTHORS: Will Fisher, Matt Chips, Michael Shirley

Evaluating security technology is a constantly evolving challenge. Testing methodologies must evolve alongside the rapidly changing security landscape. To inform and enable its testing, NSS Labs conducts empirical research on the operational and environmental realities of the enterprises who deploy these products. Earlier this year, NSS Labs launched the 2018 Security Insight Survey, a composite study consisting of the Data Center Security Study and the Encryption Study. This paper reports on the 2018 Security Insight Survey.

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. All testing was conducted independently and was not paid for by any vendor.
