[NEWS] The Devolutions’ State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report is On the Way!

To mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month which falls in October each year, we are pleased to announce that the Devolutions’ State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report is on the way!

About the Survey

For the second consecutive year, Devolutions surveyed IT decision makers in small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) around the world, to understand the state of their cybersecurity profile — and see if it is a good news story, or a bad news story. What did we discover? It is BOTH good news and bad news!

On the positive side, here are a few insights:

  • 92% of SMBs have a process in place to revoke account access for ex-employees.
  • 74% of SMBs are providing their workforce with cybersecurity training.
  • 71% of SMBs are using a password manager to store passwords.

But on the negative side, we also found that:

  • Only 31% of SMBs have a password management policy that covers minimum password length, sufficient password complexity, minimum password history, minimum password age, and mandatory MFA/2FA.
  • Only 29% of SMBs are monitoring the full roster of privileged accounts in their company.
  • Only 13% of SMBs have a fully deployed Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution in place.

The full Devolutions State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report dives deep into the good and the bad about:

  • Cyberattacks and Threats in SMBs
  • Password Management in SMBs
  • Use of Privileged Access Management in SMBs
  • Cybersecurity Training & Management in SMBs
  • Cybersecurity Investment in SMBs

We also include 15 targeted recommendations to help SMBs address gaps, vulnerabilities, and concerns — so they can stay safe on an increasingly more dangerous and costly cyberthreat landscape.

The Devolutions State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report will be available in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned for any updates. There is no cost to download the Report.
