Enterprise Security Concerns Don't Mean All That Much
With 56 percent of consumers reducing the number of sites they use because of security breaches, it's high time enterprises begin to take their digital security more seriously.
In fact, more than 70 percent of enterprises cite security as a major concern when adopting digital technologies such as social media, mobility, cloud and analytics, and yet over 40 percent of those enterprises have not sufficiently invested in security services for digital adoption. This data was just released as part of Everest Group's annual Infrastructure Services report, further indicating the need for more action, not just thought.
“Enterprises realize that digital adoption is a vital business strategy for being agile and nimble in the marketplace,” said Yugal Joshi, practice director at Everest Group. “Though enterprises have aggressively expanded the mandate of cybersecurity in light of digital adoption, they are still not giving it the attention that is due. We believe this creates significant opportunities for service providers to demonstrate differentiated capabilities across digital and security services.”
