What were the most serious web attacks in 2021? Which security technologies are the most popular to defend against them? And which new technologies are security professionals planning to adopt in 2022?
These questions, and more, were the basis of the “2022 State of Web Security” survey, recently commissioned by Reblaze and conducted by Global Surveyz. Three hundred security professionals around the world—with a variety of roles, including CISO/CIO, SRE, and DevOps/DevSecOps—answered questions about the greatest threats their organizations faced last year, their current security postures, and their plans and strategies for 2022.
The full report of the survey results is now available. Here are some of the highlights:
- The most common attacks experienced by respondents in the previous 12 months, and how this varied by region (page 7).
- The respondents’ largest blind spot: half admitted they didn’t have the ability to detect (and therefore, could not block) this increasingly common threat, and most of the rest underestimated its severity. (Is your organization making the same mistake? See page 8.)
- The growing interest in non-traditional security technologies (p. 12)
- Which security technologies are gaining, or losing, popularity at large companies versus small firms (pp. 15 and 16)
- Changing attitudes about native cloud provider WAFs (p. 16)
- How respondents are shifting their security strategies for 2022 (pp. 11, 14, and 15)
- The fastest-growing security technologies for this coming year (pp. 16 and 17).
