Bit9 has published the results of its third-annual Server Security Survey of nearly 800 IT and security professionals worldwide.
Server security remains one of the most critical aspects of any company’s security posture. Servers are where the majority of customer data, intellectual property and user credentials are stored, which is why they are the target of most advanced threats. Failure to protect servers from advanced threats can lead to significant data loss, brand damage, large financial penalties, and diminished customer confidence.
Key survey findings included:
55 percent of security professionals were concerned about targeted attacks and data breaches on servers in 2013 – up 3 percent from 2012, and up 18 percent from 2011.
Only 13 percent of respondents are ‘very confident’ in their ability to stop advanced threats targeting servers.
