  2. 2. Average number of social networking applications per organization?A total of 69 different social networking applications were found in 96% of the 395 participating organizations with an average of 15 found on each network.
  3. 3. Which application is used more heavily? Based on the percentage of social networking bandwidth consumed, Zynga was used more heavily (7%) thanLinkedin (4%). Facebook and Twitter consumed 40% and 21% respectively.

  6. 6. Browser-based filesharing use cases: work orentertainment. Both uses have a common set of business and security risks that organizations must address.
  7. 7. The number of applications using Port 80 (tcp/80) only?The number of applications that ONLY use Port 80 is 270 or 24% of the 1,121 applications found in the participating organizations.
  8. 8. Percentage of total bandwidth consumed by applications not using tcp/80?54% of the total bandwidth is being consumed by 534 (48%of 1,121) 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.
