Q4 2017 Security Transformation Study: Results Analysis

In the Face of Advanced Threats, is Your Organization's Security Posture Reactive or Proactive?

Today's most advanced threat actors - whether external or internal - are stealthier than ever and able to hide within one's systems for days, weeks or even months as they gather intel and prepare to strike. Sixty-one percent of security leaders rate the strength of their organizations' overall security posture as above average or superior, as compared to peers in their sectors.

Yet, 77 percent of these same leaders say advanced threats against their critical information systems have increased over the past 12 months. And 46 percent say that, when it comes to detecting and stopping these advanced threats, their organizations' security postures are mostly or fully reactive.

These are among the results of the 2017 Security Transformation Study. Register for this webinar which examines the newly released survey results and learn more about:

  • The state of organizations' security posture going into 2018;
  • Which factors most prevent organizations from enhancing their threat-hunting capabilities;
  • Which key investments organizations are looking to make in 2018 to create a more proactive security organization.


This survey was conducted online in the summer 2017, and it generated more than 260 responses from security leaders around the globe, with emphasis on North America, EMEA, India and APAC. Responses were consistent from organizations in all regions and sectors, with little statistical deviation. Forty percent of the respondent organizations have 10,000 or more employees.
