  1. 1. Five Facts About ApplicationUsage on Enterprise Networks in Singapore Application Usage and Risk Report December 2011
  2. 2. Average number of social networking applications per organization?A total of 64 different social networking applications were found in 97% of the 65 participating organizations with an average of 16 found on each network.
  3. 3. Which application is used more heavily?Based on the percentage of social networking bandwidth consumed, Facebook consumed 67% of the socialnetworking bandwidth. Twitter consumed a mere 7%.
  4. 4. Facebook is dominant in Singapore. Action oriented uses(apps, games, posting, and plugin) are used more heavily in Singapore than they are globally.
  5. 5. Average number of browser-basedfilesharing applications per organization? A total of 47 different browser-based filesharing applications were found in 92% of the 65 participating organizations with an average of 18 in each.

  7. 7. The number of applications using Port 80 (tcp/80) only?The number of applications that ONLY use Port 80 is 217 or 28% of the 775 applications found in the participating organizations.
  8. 8. Percentage of total bandwidth consumed by applications not using tcp/80?49% of the total bandwidth is being consumed by 216 (29% of 775) applications that DO NOT USE port 80 at all. Ever.
  9. 9. 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.
