An independent study of 2,700 mid-sized organizations across five continents




In late 2017, Sophos sponsored an independent global research study to gain a deeper understanding into the state of endpoint security in mid-sized organizations across the globe. This extensive research program explores key areas of development and concern: security breaches, technology usage, attitudes to threats, and future investment plans.

Conducted by leading UK research house Vanson Bourne, the study surveyed 2700 IT managers in organizations of 100 to 5,000 users in 10 countries, and across five continents.

This resulting paper delivers powerful insights into the prevalent cybersecurity issues facing organizations today: from ransomware to exploits and machine learning, it shares the experiences and future plans of IT managers across the globe. It’s an illuminating read, providing insight into where the field stands on these issues.
