Masergy Webinar to Explore Changing Security Priorities of Senior IT Professionals and Decision-Makers

Independent Research Study Finds the Evolving Nature of Threats and IT Complexity are Top Security Challenges

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) - Masergy Communications Inc. today announced its live security webinar entitled, "Rethink Your Cyber Security Strategy." Guest speaker Jeff Pollard, Forrester Principal Analyst for Security & Risk Professionals, joins Masergy's David Venable, VP of Cyber Security. Register today for the June 8 event that will take place from 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT, http://bit.ly/25f0qmN.

The webinar will explore the top cyber security challenges companies are facing and strategies to mitigate those risks. These insights are the result of research conducted by Forrester Consulting involving over 100 North American IT security decision-makers. The research was commissioned by Masergy.

Network and cyber security professionals are encouraged to attend and learn why:

  • 55% of cyber security professionals surveyed find their IT environments too complex
  • 78% of organizations are partnering or planning to partner with a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP)
  • Nearly 80% surveyed achieved better compliance through the use of an MSSP
  • 51% of IT security decision makers realized more accurate operational workflow

"The ability to detect, defend and recover from attacks often fails because organizations do not identify and fill the gaps in their cyber security efforts," Venable said. "This new study confirms for us that when companies augment their IT security strategies with MSSP solutions, they bolster their defenses and achieve heightened productivity gains. Forrester has identified some important security trends that we think IT professionals will find invaluable."
