  • Five Facts About ApplicationUsage on Enterprise Networks in the UK Application Usage and Risk Report December 2011
  • Average number of social networking applications per organization?A total of 68 different social networking applications were found in 100% of the 70 participating organizations with an average of 17 found on each network.
  • Which application is used more heavily? Based on the percentage of social networking bandwidthconsumed, Facebook consumed 60% of the bandwidth while Twitter consumed 14%.
  • Active social networking application (games, posting, plugins, apps) usage patterns are similar to those observedglobally. Facebook is a clear dominant player with 60% of BW consumed.
  • Average number of browser-basedfilesharing applications per organization? A total of 42 different browser-based filesharing applications were found in 96% of the 70 participating organizations with an average of 13 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 214 or 26% of the 812 applications found in the participating organizations.
  • Percentage of total bandwidth consumed by applications not using tcp/80?61% of the total bandwidth is being consumed by 240 (30% of 812) 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.
