GCC: Hindrances to Improving IT Security Solutions
By: Suraj Godse
This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights the critical factors impeding organizations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region from improving their security programs. It contains data from IDC's Q2 2019 MEA CIO Survey report. IDC conducted the survey to obtain insights into how technology influencers and decision makers view the security solutions market and what challenges they face in adopting and/or implementing upgraded or new technologies to improve their work processes and become more efficient.
"Many organizations continue to grapple with insufficient budgets for IT security. But budget constraints are not the only impediment to organizations upgrading their security infrastructures. A lack of in-house expertise, poor coordination between in-house security departments, and the reactive approach of many currently deployed security solutions are some of the other critical factors." —Research Analyst Suraj Godse, Telecom and IT Services, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
