“New research from global security and compliance solutions provider Tripwire revealed that only 25 percent of organizations have the technology needed to effectively detect and respond to a hack or data breach.
The comprehensive study, conducted by Dimensional Research, analyzed the challenges organizations face when trying to optimize cybersecurity and compliance programs by surveying more than 500 IT security professionals.
According to Tripwire, 39 percent of respondents said it takes their security teams days or weeks to correlate the data and security alerts from security tools after statistics are collected. Only 21 percent said their security teams are able to correlate data and security alerts in near real time.
Though the industry has seen an increase in IT and security budgets, many organizations still don’t have adequate resources, visibility and threat intelligence in place to keep up with the increasingly complex cybersecurity landscape.”
