9 | The Total Economic Impact™ Of Threat Stack Improved productivity: 34% of total benefits three-year benefit PV $314,044 Benefit 2: Improved Productivity Interviewed organizations described the following benefits related to improved productivity: › Reduced number of false positives and associated effort to investigate. › Reduced effort associated with reporting standards and regulatory compliance. › Avoided effort in managing the legacy cloud security solution. Based on the customer interviews, Forrester estimates for the composite organization: › The number of false positives drops from 1,000 per year (that were investigated) with the legacy solution to 10 per year (total) with Threat Stack. • The associated effort to investigate a false positive drops from 30 minutes to 5 minutes. › Reporting and regulatory compliance effort with the legacy solution required an entire full-time equivalent (FTE) and is reduced by 30% with Threat Stack. › Management of the legacy solution required half an FTE. › The fully burdened annual salary for security professionals is $133,000, which rounds to $64 per hour. This benefit can vary due to uncertainty related to: › Reduction in false positives and associated effort to investigate. › Reduced compliance and management effort. › Fully burdened salary for security professionals. To account for these risks, Forrester adjusted this benefit downward by 5%, yielding an annual benefit of $126,282 and a three-year risk-adjusted total PV of $314,044.
