Three out of four government agencies and critical infrastructure entities in the Asia-Pacific region have flagged extended detection and response (EDR-XDR) solutions as being the most difficult to implement for bolstering cyberdefence efforts, according to a Trellix cybersecurity survey.

The findings arise after cybersecurity firm Trellix surveyed 200 IT security professionals from Indian, Australian, and Japanese government agencies and critical infrastructure providers that have 500 or more employees.

The survey comes amidst government agencies and critical infrastructure entities in the region facing increasingly more cyber attacks, Trellix said.

Last month, IBM said the Asia-Pacific was the most targeted region last year, accounting for one in four cybersecurity attacks launched worldwide. In that region, Australia, India, and Japan experienced the most incidents.

Among Australian and Indian respondents, 76% and 77% of them, respectively, identified EDR-XDR solutions as the most difficult for organisations to implement. Meanwhile, for Japanese respondents, 71%, said the same thing.

The root of this difficulty differed between the countries, however, with 60% of Indian respondents identifying a lack of implementation expertise as the biggest barrier for implementing new cybersecurity solutions. For almost half of Australian respondents, they said a lack of in-house staff resources was the biggest barriers for
