Vulnerability Analysis as Security Solution: New Stats Show 18% Jump in Security Vulnerabilities
It seems far too many potentially powerful security solutions have cuts in company budgets lately, at least based on new statistics. We constantly see high percentage numbers for businesses being brought down by a lack of decent digital security. This might seem surprising considering how many companies keep adding more digital technology (especially mobile devices). However, the more technology that gets added, it seems security measures become further overlooked.
Out of all statistics proving the above, we ran across some recent statistics that showed how much complacency there is. TechRepublic recently published a security vulnerability report from Secunia for 2015. In Secunia’s general assessment, they found there were far more security vulnerabilities last year than there were the year before.
To be more specific, there were 18% more of these vulnerabilities last year than in 2013. Over a five-year period, this increased 55%.
While this isn’t necessarily shocking, they cite the increasing use of more applications in the workplace as a result of the numbers. Mobile technology and BYOD policies in many companies now leave all digital devices wide open to more security threats.
With all of this in mind, perhaps you think the words “vulnerability analysis” make you look weak. In truth, every company is vulnerable, and having a proper analysis should make you feel ahead of the herd.
