It is important to recognize that, overall, the industry has an effectiveness problem. The escalation in threat activity and a talent shortage in the industry has created a situation where, despite products and cybersecurity spend, we aren’t getting better protection. To put a finer point on it, there are over 3,000 vendors selling products in the industry. The total spend last year was $120B+ and even with all of that there were almost 4,000 breaches – a 96% increase over the previous year. The takeaway from these breaches is that they are NOT product failures, they are operational failures. To prevent these kinds of breaches from happening again in the future, we believe the industry needs to adopt a new approach – an operational approach – to cybersecurity.
