Today, a Promisec survey revealed that the situation isn’t any better in the private sector – and is actually getting worse. The survey found that only 32 percent of security professionals admitted to having advanced endpoint security in place, which is lower than last year’s 39 percent. Remember how I recently wrote about security professionals being disconnected from security realities? This survey highlights that disconnect clearly, as The Street discussed:
an increasing number of respondents (73% this year vs 58% last year) consider endpoints to be “most vulnerable” to a cyber-attack. Although more respondents recognize that endpoints are vulnerable to a cyber-attack, fewer companies today said they have endpoint protection in place compared with last year.
