Survey Shows a Security Conundrum

A new report examines and quantifies the conflicts and challenges faced by business security leaders.

A new survey illustrates how security executives are forced to embrace conundrums, conflicts, and confusion, in their jobs.

The report, from Glasswall Solutions, based on interviews with senior-level security executives in the US and UK, found that 85% rely heavily on employees as part of their defense and 40% consider employees are the sole "last line of defense" for the company - but 40% say employees are a significant source of vulnerabilities.

Some 82% say that the network perimeter is where they most need to continue security investment; meanwhile, attention across the industry is shifting to cloud architectures and post-breach detection and response.
