“A [threat intelligence platform] not only provides the enterprise security team with a richer body of intelligence on which to draw, but also a bunch of automation capabilities for processing that intelligence and actually putting it to use.”

That’s one of the major findings in CyberEdge’s “2019 Cyberthreat Defense Report,” the sixth yearly report summarizing trends in cybersecurity. The most comprehensive study of security professionals’ perceptions in the industry, this report provides a 360-degree view of cyber threats, current defenses, and planned security investments by organizations of all sizes and across all industries.

Highlights from the report include:

  • The State of the Security Industry: Rates of successful cyberattacks remain consistent, driving pessimism among an ongoing skills shortage.
  • Perceptions and Concerns: Malware, spearphishing, and ransomware continue to top the list of concerns for the third consecutive year.
  • Current and Future Investments: As security budgets continue to grow, new investments go toward advanced security solutions driven by machine learning.
  • Practices and Strategies: Threat intelligence platforms powered by machine learning offer a powerful way to get context needed to reduce research time, among other advantages.
