Economic anxiety, staffing challenges, and growing supply chain threats among other factors impacting cybersecurity spending and planning
NEW YORK and TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cymulate, the leader in cybersecurity risk validation and exposure management, today announced the results of a global survey of more than 1,000 IT and security professionals examining the influence of ongoing uncertainties in cybersecurity and cyber resilience. The 2022 Cymulate Global Readiness Survey investigated the impact of increased geopolitical tensions, economic concerns, and the Great Resignation, as well as more technical aspects such as the rise of supply chain attacks and the efficacy of best practices, on cybersecurity and cyber-readiness within enterprises.
Consolidation of cybersecurity solutions was a key theme within the findings, with 60% reporting their organization is seeking to reduce the number of solutions in use. Notably, only 20% of respondents reported affordability as the main reason, while 23% and 22% cited usability and the need to right-size their security setup as the primary driver of consolidation. “Businesses of all sizes shared that it is no longer about point solutions. With the volume of security tools and data, the need has shifted towards an integrated security suite,” said Carolyn Crandall, chief security advocate at Cymulate. Economic anxiety has delayed purchasing with most respondents noting project delays of three to six months. Interestingly, rising geopolitical tensions like the conflict in Ukraine and the standoff over Taiwan were not cited as having an impact on budget reductions or purchasing decisions.
Additional key highlights of the survey include:
With the increasing number of cyber threats and their devastating effects on business revenue, productivity and reputation, Frost & Sullivan projects the global BAS market to increase at a CAGR of 38.5% between 2021 and 2026.
The global survey was conducted on LinkedIn and gathered responses from more than 1,000 IT and security professionals representing a wide range of industries, organization sizes, and specific roles. Of the respondents, 81% occupy a technical role, such as cybersecurity, IT, or DevOps, and 70% are considered decision-makers in the organization, including individuals at the manager, director, and executive levels. The survey includes respondents from North America, Latin America, APAC, and EMEA representing companies ranging in size from less than 500 employees to more than 50,000. In addition, nearly every major industry is represented, including finance, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and others, yielding a broadly representative sample.
