Study Finds a Significant Percentage of Companies Lack Resources to Manage IT Security challenges
COLUMBIA, MD –May 9, 2016: EventTracker, a leading provider of comprehensive and co-managed SIEM solutions, today announced the results of its sponsored, in-depth research and analysis report titled, “Co-sourcing for SIEM expertise.” The survey was conducted in April 2016 by SC Magazine, based on responses from 377 information security professionals across diverse industries. The objective of the study was to highlight the challenges faced in implementing IT security strategies in small to medium-sized (SME) and large enterprises.
According to the report, nearly 64 percent of the respondents confirmed that they lack the time to manage security activities, regardless of company size and budget. Medium-sized businesses are under increasing pressures to implement sophisticated cybersecurity tools that are typical to a Fortune 500 company. Partnering with SIEM vendors is predicted as the most viable option considering the budget constraints, labor shortage and ultra-tight cybersecurity labor market.
“We are aware of the resources and time constraints of IT security professionals to manage their IT security,” said A.N. Ananth, CEO, EventTracker. “It can be challenging to hire and keep the skills set needed for complex IT security solutions like SIEM in addition to the requirements of regular monitoring and analysis. As a result, we’ve seen the increasing trend for SIEM-as-a-Service rise over the past several years.”
