CISOs agree: The right technologies and defense in depth are the key factors in avoiding major cybersecurity breaches. It helps to have good processes and a skilled staff in place, but strong cybersecurity technologies are the most important factor to avoid data breaches.
Don’t just take it from me – a large majority of respondents in a recent Forrester Consulting survey, commissioned by Fortinet, said better security technology was integral to their security successes.
The survey asked 342 CISOs and other security executives about their biggest security challenges. Topping the list was the rapidly evolving nature of cyberthreats, followed by security in the cloud, the complexity of their IT environments, and securing IoT. Not too surprisingly, more than two-thirds of the respondents reported that their organizations have been breached at some point. Those organizations breached in the last two years have been compromised an average of three times.
