TEKsystems survey reveals growing concern for network security during annual collegiate sporting event
Heading into next week’s NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament, TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today released the results of a survey that explores the anticipated impact of the games on corporate networks. The survey results represent the views of more than 400 IT professionals, including help desk support analysts, developers, systems administrators, database administrators, network administrators and others.
“This data shows that network administrators should definitely be concerned about their network’s health during mass appeal sporting events,” said TEKsystems Research Manager Jason Hayman. “Additionally, the increased use of alternative devices such as tablets and smartphones within the corporate environment is exacerbating the problem and will likely continue to increase. Many savvy IT departments have actually put on a “full-court press” to develop calendars of extraordinary events to help ensure the network is exposed to as little as possible.”
TEKsystems’ Jason Hayman is available for additional commentary. For more information about the survey, or to schedule an interview, please contact Rick McLaughlin at TEKsystems@teamlewis.com.
