Data-Driven Security Unleashed: A Look Into the Tools That Drive Security - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Data-Driven Security Unleashed: A Look Into the Tools That Drive Security" report to their offering.

The "Data-Driven Security Unleashed" report is a guide to market perceptions about the strengths of various tools and weaknesses from security and IT personnel, as well as individual contributors through the management ranks.

2014 and 2015 battered confidence in security's ability to detect incidents before becoming a significant impact. Confidence dropped from 31 to 21 percent of respondents being only "somewhat confident" into "highly doubtful" of detecting a security issue before it made a significant impact. However, advances in technology changed the previous four-year trends in these areas. As of 2016, 48 percent of respondents were confident that they could detect an incident prior to it becoming a significant impact. This is at least partly due to the fact that more companies are creating security baselines for their environments. As a result, companies feel more confident about their ability to monitor and prioritize threats to their high-priority assets and detect breaches before they create a significant impact.

The largest change in the report for 2016 was the inclusion of network security policy management as a technology. Though vendors in this space have existed for as many as 12 years, the growing complexity and span of networks (combined with the need for centralized security policy implementation and visibility) gave this category a huge introduction to the report. 53 percent of organizations said they were using a tool of this type, making it the most widely used solution in the report. It also scored at second place for value based on total cost of ownership.
