After surveying hundreds of IT professionals, Threater released their report on the current state of enterprise security
TYSONS, VA / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2022 / Today, Threater announced the release of their inaugural Security Stack Insights Report, which reveals new data on the current state of Enterprise Security and organizational security postures.
About the 2022 Security Stack Insights Report
The survey respondents included over 300 US-based IT professionals, including C-Suite Executives, Directors, and Managers in Higher Education, Finance, Computer and Technology, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Telecommunication, and Aerospace.
The Security Stack Insights Report uncovers new findings on enterprise security, revealing where many organizations stand in their security posture, along with where they see gaps in their current security stacks.
According to the report, many IT professionals reported difficulty prioritizing a security budget and proactively allocating resources to block attacks. Almost one-fifth of professionals responded as having a limited budget for security (less than $100k), and 30% said they do not actively evaluate their security budget.
“While the cybersecurity industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years, our Security Stack Insights Report shows that we still have a long way to go,” said Brian McMahon, Chief Executive Officer of Threater. “Security stacks are larger than ever – we found that almost half of our respondents have more than six tools and services in their security stack today. But, many of them do not have actual visibility into these products. In fact, 27% of professionals reported that they do not know how many tools they have in their security stack. And organizations that don’t have true visibility into their security stacks are leaving the door wide open for cyber threats and data breaches.”
Many professionals also struggle to upkeep their organization’s security posture. Almost a quarter reported that they do not have the ability to add new technology or tools if new attacks are demonstrated. In addition, 24% of professionals said their security posture is average or below average, indicating their security stack is vulnerable to threats.
As a network protection platform, Threater works to alleviate many of the pain points experienced by IT professionals.
