TAC Security Survey Reveals: 88% of Businesses Rely on Manual Processes to Identify Network Vulnerabilities

SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2022This week, TAC Security, a global leader in Full Cycle Vulnerability Management solutions, released the results of a survey on top concerns surrounding infrastructure security. The survey sample included 102 IT and security professionals representing all industries including healthcare, finance, and manufacturing.

The survey identified multiple top-of-mind concerns in different categories applicable to vulnerability management (VM). The results showed that businesses are struggling to properly manage vulnerabilities within their full infrastructure, causing increased concern surrounding privacy and security.

Highlights from the survey include:

  • 56% of businesses don’t have a single view of risks across their infrastructure
  • 71% of businesses said email phishing was their greatest security breach concern
  • 34% of businesses don’t prioritize risks for their IT teams
  • 88% of businesses manually review risks on their own, rather than employing a vulnerability management solution
  • 82% of businesses still use more than one tool to scan all their assets

“Vulnerability management is a relatively old idea, but innovative IT teams will continuously seek out updated solutions to stay one step ahead of bad actors, who continue to become increasingly sophisticated and resourceful in their malware development,” said Trishneet Arora, Founder and CEO of TAC Security. “It’s time for businesses to take stock of the capabilities within their VM solution and ensure that it is scanning all IT assets, prioritizing the most threatening risks and ensuring those vulnerabilities are being remediated. That is the best way to reduce the potential for future breaches.”
