Re: My survey
Users will continue to be the weakest link, which is why doing the top 5 security initiatives will significantly reduce the attack surface in a measurable mannor.

Its important to stress, as you stated, there is no silver bullet. This makes sense. It has to be layered security model to minimize the risks.

Re: My survey
Now Malwarebytes is decent but not foolproof, ever and Crowdstrike, Splunk and Carbon Black are acceptable defense walls. That makes sense. These tools may help however when it comes user behavior even those are bypassed in certain cases.

Antivirus doesn't do it, never really has and has only gotten worse. I agree. Attacks are more sophisticated that AV is not capable of catching, so becoming more irrelevant.

Re: My survey
End users ARE the cause of almost all problens with phishing still the primary attack and infection entry. That makes sense. We just need to provide better tools so risks coming from employees behaviors are minimized.

Employees
found that 85% rely heavily on employees as part of their defense This makes sense as we know employees are the weakest link in the security model.

Re: My survey
This sentiment needs to be echoed. I always stress actionable intelligence through the reduction of alert fatigue. If you have a proficient security team, you can make optimizations towards automated your toolsets based on the comprehension of the environment. Your forementioned toolsets are viable. But funneling them into a single pane of glass is ideal (SIEM). 

Its important to stress, as you stated, there is no silver bullet. But you need to maximize your Security workforce by maximiing your actionable intelligence. It is grueling work that takes its toll. So its important to do some work upfront to preserve this workforce while preserving an acceptable security posture.

My survey
I have "complete confidence" in nothing, not 100% ever.  Nothing is comprehensive.  End users ARE the cause of almost all problens with phishing still the primary attack and infection entry.  They still open emails and click on links.  Antivirus doesn't do it, never really has and has only gotten worse.  Now Malwarebytes is decent but not foolproof, ever and Crowdstrike, Splunk and Carbon Black are acceptable defense walls.  You need good security staff with knowledge and ability too.  You have to respond fast and faster.  And your security staff NEEDS a rest from it all too - it is demanding work and soul-breaking in many ways.  The days of Peter Norton are long gone.

Building the SOC of the Future
While an attacker just needs to find one vulnerability to get in to the network, the defender has to look everywhere. Defenders have to identify, disrupt, and stop attacks in the short period of time between when an attacker gets in and causes damage. One way is a security operations center to get that "all the time" coverage. What's Inside: --AI and cybersecurity response --Automation --Proctive threat hunting --Next-gen SIEM
