A new survey, sponsored by Sophos, that asked IT managers in mid-sized organizations across the globe about how their firewall technology is working for them.

Key findings include: IT managers report that, on average, 45% of their network traffic is unidentifiable and uncontrollable. And some industries have more challenges gaining visibility into their network traffic than others – healthcare industry respondents cite 67% of their traffic on average is unidentifiable, for example.
