Global Study – The need for a new IT security architecture

“Cyber-attacks happen by the minute—and in our industry on the whole, they’re not being handled adequately. To get a better view of why that is, Citrix teamed up with the Ponemon Institute to find out what’s holding up businesses from appropriately addressing security issues. Here’s what we found and how businesses can take smarter steps to protect their most sensitive information—even while threats are on the rise.”

“While cyber attacks over the last 18 months have drawn a significant amount of attention to security, we still have a long way to go in teaching employees about security best practices, sharing information among the intelligence community, and with bringing security infrastructures up-to-date. The demand for devices and anytime, anywhere access often trumps security fears these days. No one can afford to assume that a device or a network is inherently safe. Our survey found that:

  • Eighty-three percent of respondents say their organization is at risk for security breaches because of the complexity of business and IT operations
  • Seventy-four percent of businesses say a new IT security framework is needed to improve security posture and reduce risk
  • Seventy-nine percent are worried about security breaches involving high-value information..”
