Security leaders are looking to security orchestration and automation to solve security operations challenges.

New Siemplify research (commissioned in partnership with ESG), reveals the exact nature of these challenges and what they plan to do about it!

This first look at ground-breaking research on the future of Security Operations and Incident Response presents hard data that will help clarify priorities, strategies, and tactics to advance security operations.

Key findings of our survey among 150 leading security organizations in North America include:

  • Organizations are forced to knowingly ignore alerts - despite increased spending on security tools and personnel, nearly half of respondents have no choice but to ignore alerts that they believe SHOULD BE investigated due to the sheer volume of incoming threats
  • Growing shortage of skilled staff - More than 80% of organizations said they persistently lack adequate staff to meet the demands of their security operations
  • Security operations must be centralized, orchestrated, and automated - A staggering 96% of respondents highlighted the need to take action in orchestrating their incident response processes and over 90% said they needed to explore varying degrees of automation to improve their response
  • A single pane of glass -- at the top of the wish list of priorities for Security Operations Teams

These are just some of the highlights from this timely research. '
