Vanson Bourne polled 600 IT decision-makers (300 from IT operations and 300 IT security). The research discovered that:

  • Over half (60 percent) have experienced a serious security breach in the last two years – 31 percent more than once
  • Eight in ten claim digital transformation increases cyber risk
  • Fewer than a quarter (23 percent) believe that the IT operations and IT security teams work together extremely well to secure the business; nearly all (97 percent) believe that their organization would benefit from better collaboration between these teams
  • On average, respondents have visibility of 64 percent of their organization’s total software estate; only 66 percent of this software is current
