70 % OF SECURITY AND IT PROS FIND SECURITY HYGIENE AND POSTURE MANAGEMENT CHALLENGING
J announced the findings of a new survey by Enterprise Strategy Group ( ESG ), which warns of inadequate security hygiene and posture management practices at many organisations . The ESG research found that 86 % of organisations believe they follow best practices for security hygiene and posture management . However , 70 % of organisations said they use more than 10 security tools to manage security hygiene and posture management , which raises concerns about data management and operations overhead .
In addition , 73 % of security professionals admitted that they still depend on spreadsheets to manage security hygiene and posture at their organisations . As a result , 70 % of respondents said that security hygiene and posture management had become more difficult over the past two years as their attack surfaces have grown .
" The data demonstrates that many organisations continue to address security hygiene and posture management tactically on a technologyby-technology basis ," said Jon Oltsik ,
