Survey Report: ReliaQuest Security Technology Sprawl Report

ReliaQuest, a leader in enterprise security, 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 than proactively defending against threats.
