53% of enterprises have no idea if their security tools are working


The majority of organizations don’t know if the security tools they deploy are working, and are not confident they can avoid data breaches, according to AttackIQ.

AttackIQ released the report based on Ponemon Institute research evaluating the efficacy of enterprise security strategies. Ponemon surveyed 577 IT and IT security practitioners in the United States who are knowledgeable about their organization’s IT security strategy, tactics and technology investments.

“The significant number of security experts who have observed a security control falsely reporting it blocked a cybersecurity attack is alarming,” said Larry Ponemon, founder and chairman of Ponemon Institute.
