Cyber security has become a top concern for many business leaders due to the growing threat landscape over the past year. A new report from Intel and Ponemon Institute analyzes how organizations are increasingly approaching security innovations in the digital world to better protect themselves.
The report states that the top areas for security innovation in organizations today are automation (41%), security at the silicon level (40%), cloud migration (40%) and education and training (38%). According to 53% of IT security professionals – the impact of epidemics on the road and how we operate has been a major driver behind ventures that refresh their security strategies.
To achieve this level of innovation, many organizations are looking to improve hardware-assisted security solutions. Thirty-six percent of IT security professionals say their organization’s current cyber security protocols use hardware-assisted security solutions. Of those 36%, 47% say their organizations will adopt hardware-assisted security solutions in the next six to 12 months.
However, many enterprises are already using the power of hardware-enhanced security solutions to help secure their entire security stack and are looking to technology vendors to help prioritize and adopt hardware-assisted solutions in their security strategies. The same 36% use hardware-assisted security solutions, 85% say hardware or firmware-based security is a high or very high priority for their organization. And 64% of IT security professionals say it’s important for vendors to provide hardware and software-assisted security capabilities.
However, enterprises are looking for specific technology vendors to help them innovate in their security stack. The report found that 64% of people say that organizations are more likely to purchase technologies and services from leading providers in terms of innovation. This means that it is up to vendors to continue to provide enterprises with the most innovative hardware and software security solutions to protect against the ever-evolving risk landscape.
For the report, Intel has teamed up with the Ponemon Institute to survey more than 1,400 IT security professionals who are influential in investing in IT security decision making in technology in the United States, Latin America and EMEA.
