Thumb original vmware forrester tlp tension between it and security professionals

Although IT and Security teams shoulder the responsibility of many mission-critical tasks in organizations, they often are not aligned under a unified strategy. To assess how a common IT and security strategy can break down silos across the two teams, VMware commissioned Forrester to survey 1,400+ manager level and above IT/security professionals along with CIOs and CISOs.

The study delves into key findings that include:
* Top Priorities for IT and Security in the next twelve months.
* Challenges IT and Security face across the whole portfolio: people, processes, and technology.
* Benefits of unifying IT and Security through a common strategy.

To unify IT and Security, find out why companies need technologies that support both groups’ needs - simplifying operations and reducing the number of security breaches.
