ReliaQuest, a leader in enterprise security, today released the findings of the 2019 ReliaQuest Security Technology Sprawl Report, which reveals how a rapid increase in the number of security tools used by large companies is limiting their return on investment while increasing the risk of cyber threats. The survey of 400 security decision makers at companies with more than 1,000 employees found there is a "security tool tipping point" where the number of cybersecurity solutions becomes overwhelming and increases organizational risk levels. The result is underutilized technology, ineffective use of valuable security resources and overwhelmed and inefficient teams that spend more time trying to manage their wide range of tools that proactively defending against threats.
Key findings include:
• Security teams are deploying more tools than ever
• Teams are struggling to implement the tools
• The burden of tools maintenance compromises threat response
• A majority of enterprises are less secure today as a result of tool sprawl
