Among other findings, ESG discovered:

  • Program maturity gaps result in inconsistency, misconfigurations, and visibility gaps.
  • A diverse threat model is driving the need for an integrated defense-in-depth strategy.
  • The shift from a bottoms-up to a top-down approach is increasing the role of IT ops.
  • The requirement for breadth of coverage and depth of functionality is leading the consolidation of point tools into integrated platform modules.
