Dell Survey Reveals Security Teams Can Better Enable Digital Transformation Initiatives if Engaged Early in Business Planning
ROUND ROCK, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Dell today announced results of a global Digital Transformation Security Survey that shows digital transformation is a fast-growing reality in business. Results reveal that security often is seen as a barrier to digital transformation, therefore brought into the process too late to make a meaningful impact. However, respondents recognized that security teams can serve as enablers in helping the business adopt digital technologies when included early in the planning process. Ninety-seven percent of respondents say they are investing in digital technologies including mobile, cloud applications, cloud infrastructures and IoT. While only 18 percent say security has been involved in all of their digital transformation initiatives, 85 percent say that if security teams are included earlier in the project ‒ and many admit they currently are not ‒ security can better enable those initiatives.
