The MANRS team recently surveyed a broad range of enterprises to better understand how organizations contracting Internet connectivity providers think about securing their traffic as it transits the Internet.

The survey shows a clear expectation and demand for a wide range of security requirements to achieve better routing security, and more generally traffic security, for enterprises. However, being at the edge of the routing system, enterprises often feel they can’t influence routing security decisions. 

The reality is enterprises can drive action through their procurement processes. The problem is deciding what metrics to use when assessing a potential connectivity provider – how can you check that the security of their connectivity provider meets the requirements? As the survey showed, enterprises mostly rely on the explanations they receive from their connectivity provider.
