The problem of cyber attacks is getting more and more severe in the world. According to an ESG* report, most organizations claim that network security is more complex today due to a growing attack surface, an increased security workload, and pervasive threats and vulnerabilities. Organizations face many security challenges, such as misalignment with business/IT initiatives, staffing shortages and extended time frames required for security deployment. In addition, digital transformation pushes IT initiatives to be supplemented with security controls and oversight for cyber-risk mitigation. For organizations without the right network security processes and controls in place, they can be vulnerable to crippling cyber attacks and data breaches.
