Most CyberSecurity tools ‘too complex’ says report -Good job there’s CyberScore™

According to a recently published survey by Thycotic, the complexity of cybersecurity tools is impeding their effective deployment and effectiveness in many organisations.

The survey questioned 250 IT professionals and discovered that 34% said that the complexity of cybersecurity tools was a major hindrance to the effectiveness of the tools as a whole.

Difficulty in deployment was also putting some professionals off from using the tools entirely and added an extra barrier of complexity.

If a security tool is difficult to use on a day-by-day basis then naturally its effectiveness is going to be impacted.

People want tools that they can easily use and that provide accurate reporting. Many tools promise the earth and rarely deliver, often delivering many false positives in their reporting.

Enter CyberScore™

There are countless cybersecurity tools out there but we doubt many (if any) are as simple to use and understand as our very own security testing and rating service CyberScore™. Designed with simplicity in mind, any IT professional can set it up and start a scan.

The survey also revealed what the most important features a cybersecurity tool should have. 26% of those questioned said that the ability to easily to deploy was vital, closely followed by the ability for the tool to be automated. CyberScore™ fits both of those categories.
