Siemplify and ESG Research Finds Majority of Organizations Forced to Ignore Important Alerts

Joint research with Enterprise Security Group reveals security leaders’ top challenges and their broader implications for security operations

NEW YORK– (BUSINESS WIRE)–Siemplify™, the leader in security orchestration and incident response, today announced the release of a new Enterprise Security Group (ESG) Research Report. In early 2017, ESG and Siemplify launched a joint research effort to better understand the complex challenges and priorities that security operations leaders are navigating this year.

Surveying 150 cybersecurity professionals across a variety of verticals, the extensive study sheds new light on the growing needs of security operations. Though organizations have spent resources on and deployed more detection systems, there is now a developing need to shift their focus to achieving efficient and rapid response times, making it clear that manual and unstructured triage and response processes are one of the main factors hampering efficient response. Organizations were furthermore overwhelmed by the amount of security alert data and also struggle with the cybersecurity industry’s ongoing staff and skill shortage.
