Abundance of cybersecurity tools companies in danger

New research from the enterprise security company ReliaQuest has shown that a rapid increase in the number of security tools used by companies, limiting their return on investment, but also the increasing danger of cyber-threats.

the new 2019 ReliaQuest safety technology sprawl Report, the company surveyed 400 security decision makers in companies with over 1,000 employees to discover it a “security tool tipping point”, where the number of cybersecurity solutions cluttered and increases the organisational risk levels.

As a result, companies using their technology is a waste of valuable security resources and let your team be overwhelmed. security teams are, more time to manage their wide range of tools as a proactive defense against threats.

of The respondents, nearly three-quarters (70%) of the respondents said that their organization has invested more than five new technologies in the past year, while 19 percent said they have invested more than 20.

Teams are fighting to implement, said these new tools, and 71 percent that you are adding security technologies that are faster than you use to add the capacity to proactively. This additional complexity will also say your reaction to the threat, with 69 percent of security decision makers surveyed that their security team currently spends more time with the management of security-defending tools as effectively against threats.

even worse, a majority of the companies are now less safe as a result of the security tool, urban sprawl, and more than half (53%) say that their security team has reached a turning point, where the excessive number of security tools negative impact of the security situation of your company.

ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy further insight on the results of the report, said:

“Cyber-threats continue to increase, and requires companies to reduce the risk. To think while it is tempting, another piece of technology that will solve the problem, it is far from the truth — in fact, this survey proves more tools to the enterprise’s security made worse by adding complexity, without improving the results. Companies will need to focus to get more from the investments you already have, while becoming more selective with new technologies, acquisitions, and ensuring fit with your existing security models. The ultimate goal: tight integration and transparency across your entire environment.

“Finally, safety technologies that help companies, always a step ahead of rapidly evolving threats. Provider sprawl, and the financial and operational pain caused it is preventable. But in order to technologies to supply a total of more transparency, security, politicians should rethink higher-level business goals, teach you the tools, your safety models, and then calibrate to achieve the process and the people to the best results.”
