Linked – IT security hindering productivity and innovation, survey shows

It’s the never-ending battle, and as someone who’s been on both sides of it, responsible for keeping thing secure, and unable to do things I need to do or reach things I need to reach when traveling, I don’t know what the right answer is.

The survey revealed that 88% of enterprises prohibit users from using websites and applications due to security concerns, with 94% investing in web proxy services to restrict what users can and cannot access.

Unsurprisingly, these restrictions negatively impact user experience, with 74% of CISOs saying users have expressed frustration that security is preventing them from doing their job and 81% said that users see security as a hurdle to innovation.
