    • Five Facts About ApplicationUsage on Enterprise Networks in Australia and New Zealand Application Usage and Risk Report December 2011
    • Average number of social networking applications per organization?A total of 34 different social networking applications were found in 86% of the 21 participating organizations with an average of 20 found on each network.
    • Which application is used more heavily? Based on the percentage of social networking bandwidthconsumed in the 21 participating ANZ organizations, Tumblr is used more heavily than Facebook.
    • Facebook takes a Tumblr. This NYC-based micro-blogging site is used more heavily in ANZ than any other social networking application. ANZ is the only geography whereTumblr was used so heavily and it highlights the fact that where the application is developed has little bearing on where it is popular.
    • Average number of browser-basedfilesharing applications per organization? A total of 34 different browser-based filesharing applications were found in 81% of the 21 participating organizations with an average of 12 in each.
    • Browser-based filesharing use cases: work orentertainment. Both uses have a common set of business and security risks that organizations must address.
    • The number of applications using Port 80 (tcp/80) only?The number of applications that ONLY use Port 80 is 157 or 28% of the 566 applications found in the participating ANZ organizations.
    • Percentage of total bandwidth consumed by applications not using tcp/80?67% of the total bandwidth is being consumed by 219 (39% of 566) applications that DO NOT USE port 80 at all. Ever.
    • Port 80 only security is shortsighted. The commonperception is that Port 80 (tcp/80) is where all the traffic and all the problems are. A port 80 emphasis is an absolute requirement; but too much focus is shortsighted.
