Cybersecurity breaches in the government seem to be all over the news. The sheer number and wild variety of sources for these breaches led us to wonder what federal agencies are really dealing with. SolarWinds® partnered with leading government research provider Market Connections to survey 200 federal IT and IT security professionals to find out their top cybersecurity concerns and the obstacles they face when implementing IT security strategies.
The results of our survey include:
Detailed insight into the threats, challenges, and sources of cybersecurity breaches the government faces in its IT infrastructure
Top hindrances in the implementation of appropriate IT security tools
Strategies and courses of action being deployed by federal IT professionals to remediate cybersecurity threats
These results demonstrate that a broad and concerning range of cybersecurity threats plague government agencies. Federal IT pros must consider taking a more pragmatic and unified approach to addressing the availability, performance, and security of their infrastructures.
