Employee productivity almost always trumps security concerns, says survey

More and more enterprises are considering security firewalls and guidelines as impediments to employee productivity, say security professionals.

Security professionals are being forced to modify or turn off security settings to enable user access and to boost employee productivity.

A survey of 175 security professions from across Europe has revealed that as many as 94 per cent of users prioritize employee productivity over security concerns, thereby indicating that the focus is always on getting the job done, no matter how risky it may be.
