In this IDC study (a translation of the Japanese document IDC #J14210103), we analyze and report the results of a survey on the implementation of enterprise IT security solutions in Japan conducted by IDC in January 2014.Security threats like malware that target unknown vulnerabilities and highly stealthy bot viruses are getting harder to detect. When a security incident surfaces, extensive damages could already have been caused. Speedy status assessment and risk management are called for. To realize this, it is necessary for user companies to implement solutions that monitor and analyze security incidences and realize GRC. However, as the results of the current survey indicate, the predominant issue faced by companies when implementing security solutions is that of "budget," followed by "difficulty in measuring ROI." "User companies should implement security incidences and GRC solutions and visualize potential security threats. By visualizing the link between security incidents and risk management, IT departments will be able to demonstrate the necessity of the solutions to management teams," says Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software & Security, IDC Japan.
