In this era of global instability and accelerated digital transformation, organizations face many challenges. One of them is the need for robust cybersecurity systems and processes to securely and economically meet the technological needs of new ways of working and moving workloads to the cloud.
Most organizations are now dealing with increased security risk because of the constantly broadening attack surface and shift to a work-from-anywhere model. According to the ESG 2022 Technology Spending Intentions Survey, the top driver increasing IT complexity has been the rise in remote workers due to COVID-19 (cited by 49% of respondents), followed by the growing number and types of endpoint devices they have to secure (39%).
As businesses evolve, they face the expansion of local and cloud-based applications and data storage, and a lack of consistent visibility and insight-gathering across stitched-together security products that all solve small bits of their larger endpoint, data protection and identity problems.
