CIO survey puts focus on app delivery and cloud computing

F5 has announced the results of a Frost & Sullivan survey that looked at enterprise views towards application delivery and cloud computing with respect to their business needs as well as their understanding of the technology drivers behind these needs.
The survey found that CIOs and senior IT decision makers in Asia Pacific (APAC) recognise the importance of web applications in driving their businesses, and that their strong recognition of the seriousness of web-based attacks makes security a top concern. However, the survey also exposed a need for more awareness about the differences between traditional network-based vulnerabilities versus Web application attacks as there appeared to be some confusion among respondents about the capabilities of network-based firewalls versus Web application firewalls.
