As the Barracuda team celebrates the company’s 15th anniversary this month, we’ve been thinking about how much technology has changed since 2003 when we launched our first email security solution. We wanted to see how our customers and channel partners feel about the past, present, and future of cyber security and how their approach has evolved over time.
We surveyed more than 1,500 IT leaders and security professionals in North America, EMEA, and APJ about their IT security priorities, how those priorities have shifted, and where they’re headed next.
