Security tops app services priority list
Security, not availability, is now the number one priority driving the adoption of application services, according to a new report by F5 Networks.
Applications are becoming core to the digital economy, and organizations are increasingly turning to application services to keep them humming. In its third annual State of Application Delivery report, F5 Networks found that the average number of app services used by organizations increased from 11 in 2016 to 14 today. Sangeeta Anand, senior vice president of product management and marketing at F5 Networks, adds that the average organization plans to deploy 17 app services in the next 12 months.
