Is your security software sitting unused on the shelf?
When a company invests thousands of dollars in security software, you’d expected the product to be used to protect the company.
However, a recent study produced by Trustwave a security services company, shows that in 2014 almost a third of midsized companies bought software they barely or never even used.
“In the security business, we’ve known forever that there’s this problem with security sitting on the shelf not being used,” says Josh Shaul, vice president of product management for Trustwave. “Even though we knew that there was a problem in this department, the numbers that came back about the amount of security spend that’s being underutilized was pretty eye popping.”
