Nearly eight in 10 Americans (77%) believe their company has gaps in its current security tools, according to Lynx Software Technologies survey findings. 

Lynx, an innovator in modern platform software technologies, commissioned a survey of 500 Americans in managerial and executive roles that sought their opinions on the security of their companies and industry as a whole.

The results found that 89% are concerned about external security threats to their company and nearly the same amount, 86%, are concerned about threats from inside.

“Now more than ever, it is incredibly important that employees feel like they can trust the security of their corporate networks,” said Arun Subbarao, Vice President of Engineering and Technology at Lynx Software Technologies. “Remote and hybrid work models are here to stay, and organizations need to ensure not only that their corporate network infrastructure is secure, but also verify that every endpoint – from printers at HQ, to laptops and tablets in each employee’s home – are protected as well.”

While respondents indicated that their company has currently invested money in security (65%), remote workforce tools (56%) and Industry 4.0 advancements (44%), one in five said their company is not spending enough on security in the next year.
