Security Leader’s Peer Report: Why Poor Visibility is Hampering Cybersecurity
A survey of more than 200 security leaders has shown that enterprise security teams spend an average of 36% of their time manually producing reports, yet 89% of these organisations have concerns on lack of visibility and insight into trusted data.

Additionally, it is difficult to understand your cybersecurity posture without unified visibility and reporting.
