The Data Security Money Pit – Expense In Depth Hinders Maturity

In September 2016, Varonis commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the need for a data security platform. Then to further explore this trend, Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that in order to have a strong, secure network, organizations need a data strategy that aggregates data security into a single platform and combines data classification, analytics, and reporting in one place.

In conducting in-depth surveys with 150 data security decision-makers, Forrester found that changing strategies from a product to a platform will transform data security for companies. In fact, data security decision-makers expect to improve their ability to respond to breaches, reduce costs of legacy solutions, reduce exposure from a breach, and lower complexity.

Key Findings:

  • Investing in data security products does not translate to maturity.
  • Low maturity with data security manifests itself through challenges.
  • There is an appetite for a unified data security platform.
