SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI) reported its cybersecurity survey among federal IT professionals revealed that while the majority of respondents describe their agencies as cybersecurity-ready, many still face attacks and threats by both malicious intruders and careless and untrained insiders, and they are tasked with mastering IT security despite organizational and budget challenges.
In early 2014, Market Connections, a leader in providing customized government market research, in conjunction with SolarWinds conducted a blind online survey of 200 IT and IT security professional decision makers in the federal government and military. Nearly all respondents (94 percent) rated their agencies´ cybersecurity readiness as good or excellent, asserting that they have the necessary cybersecurity tools, processes and policies in place. Despite their confidence, though, federal IT departments still face a myriad of cybersecurity threats.
