The survey of approximately 250 enterprise IT and security professionals also showed that enterprises remain vulnerable to threats that have bypassed antivirus (40 percent) and traditional network security solutions (27 percent). More than half of the responses came from North American organizations, 10 percent from Europe and the remainder from the rest of the world. Top-responding industries include:
"These results reinforce just how vulnerable enterprise endpoints and servers are to sophisticated threats and targeted attacks," said Nick Levay, chief security officer for Bit9. "They also confirm the existence of a large endpoint and server blind spot in most enterprises. The fact is you can't stop what you can't see. Visibility is the key to effective security, as shown by the 13 percent of respondents who aren't sure whether or not they experienced a cyber attack in the past year."
