Why There Is a Huge Gap Between IT and Security Professionals
Prevoty surveyed over 1,000 IT and security professionals to learn how companies are approaching application security on a daily basis, as well as the type of struggles these individuals experience and what they would change about the process.

The findings show there seems to be a disconnect between IT and security professionals as can be seen from the following:

- Half of IT professionals update applications once a month whereas half of security professionals feel they need to update applications at least once per day, if not multiple times a day.

- Both IT and security professionals spend significant amounts of time tuning existing application security solutions as security professionals spend over 80 percent of their time and IT professionals almost 40 percent of their time.

- There is a disconnect between IT and security professionals as nearly all (93 percent) of security professionals report having up to 5,000 security vulnerabilities in their backlogs and 44 percent of IT professionals report that they have no vulnerability backlogs.
