Emerging cybersecurity initiatives generate lots of buzz but aren’t likely to shift the focus of IT and business leaders away from fundamental issues such as cost and best-of-breed solutions. A recent survey indicates that the top concern of IT leaders is to find solutions and managed services providers that can shore up and automate core threat detection and remediation security capabilities.

IT decision makers are evaluating vendors on their ability to meet network as well as security needs, provide advanced security experience to close current enterprise skills gaps, and support legacy as well as new systems. The survey by Comcast Business and CIO included 146 respondents, more than 60% of them in C-level roles (CIO, CISO/CSO, CTO, or COO). Companies from a range of industries with more than 500 employees were represented, with 70% of the respondents from companies with 2,500 or more employees.
