It involves more than 2,000 business and IT professionals in 10 countries, with the intent to provide education for employers that can help them reassess corporate policies, make smart product investment decisions and ultimately protect their businesses — and their applications — by simply becoming more aware of the behavior of their employees.

Just how important are apps? Two out of five global AIR™ respondents say they “cannot live without apps.”

Nearly half of AIR respondents expect to be protected from cyber attacks by either their company or third-party app developers.

Only one in four AIR respondents think security is the most important app attribute, ranking behind performance and ease of use.

INVESTIGATING THE NEW SECURITY LANDSCAPE

A10’s Neil Wu Becker explains how AIR investigates user behavior, app dependency and culture, and how they are impacting the security postures of enterprises across the globe.

Understanding the dependency on apps in our lives raises questions about the diligence we apply to protecting our personal and business information."

Neil Wu Becker
Vice President, Global Marketing and Corporate Communications

The digital bond between users and apps introduces many dependencies, vulnerabilities and concerns for employees, developers and businesses alike. 

‘Someone Else Will Protect Me’
Employees think about security more with personal apps than business apps. Why? Many expect their IT department, company or third-party app developer to protect them from cyber attacks.

House or Phone?
Which would you rather leave unlocked and unguarded? The answers illustrate a true shift in privacy, ownership and personal priorities.

Security Not Always Top of Mind
How much does security influence decisions to download work or personal apps? And after they download the app, does security change their behavior for using it?

Apps, Food or Air
A surprising number of global participants say apps are equally — or almost as important — as eating, drinking and breathing. 

APP DEPENDENCY GOES GLOBAL

WHEN APPLICATION SECURITY MATTERS

COMMISSIONED BY A10 NETWORKS

As users age, app security and ease of use are priorities. For younger AIR respondents, performance is most important — and by a wide margin.

App Attribute Importance by Age

The majority of AIR respondents (86%) consider apps to be integral to their daily personal or business lives.
