Although IT leaders claim security is critical to their business, many are also willing to sacrifice it to turn out products faster, according to a recent study from CA Technologies.
The CA study, entitled "The Security Imperative: Driving Business Growth in the App Economy," showed that 68 percent of IT leaders surveyed they "sometimes compromise security to get applications to market faster."
Yet, 83 percent of respondents said they view security as critical to protecting their brand and is a competitive differentiator. And more than 60 percent of respondents said they are using metrics such as customer experience, satisfaction and retention; business growth; and digital reach to measure the impact of security on the business.
