Investments in IT security are starting to level off, largely because most organizations lack the internal expertise to master them, according to a recent global survey of 1,825 IT management and security professionals conducted by The Ponemon Institute on behalf of Dell SecureWorks. From a channel perspective, the most aggravating part of the these survey results is that only a quarter said IT security is a high priority, which may account for why only 19 percent of the IT security budget is allocated to managed or outsourced services. This has serious implications for the channel. The study suggests that much of the fault for this IT security disconnect lies with CIOs/CTOs and business unit leaders that exercise the most control over the IT security budget. In terms of greatest satisfaction with IT security technologies, the study finds that investments in security information event management (SIEM) and encryption appear to be providing the biggest bang for the buck. Channel Insider examines key takeaways from the study.
