As the vast quantity of cyber-security products covering various attack surfaces and use cases continues to rise, businesses will likely investigate opportunities to consolidate when and where possible. However, consolidation within security is not as simple as buying more products from the same vendor or migrating everything to one data-lake. Instead, a greater emphasis will be placed on holistic workflows, unified agents, and cross-product synergies that can deliver greater value.
Even though consolidation is expected to be a key focus for 2023, businesses are likely to use more than just one vendor. We have already witnessed an increasing demand from security teams for more integration and collaboration between vendors. We expect this demand for integration to create a need for vendors to boost their own value by being able to demonstrate their ability to extract value from the existing value stack.
Cloud-computing is the future of the digital business world
In a world of ever-evolving cyber threats, the unfortunate reality remains that a recession is only likely to further incentivise cybercriminals to develop new assault tactics and strategies. The complexity of our rapidly expanding interconnected world and swiftly expanding threat landscape necessitates increased visibility and monitoring of performance and security across a variety of platforms, geographies, and service providers.
The economic turmoil will pressure businesses to reduce costs and be more effective. With budgets reducing and the threat of newer and more efficient cyberattacks on the rise, we expect a greater emphasis to be placed on efficiency and performance. We believe cloud computing will become more important in the coming year, with businesses increasingly migrating their data to the cloud. However, this brings with it additional threats. In order to safeguard their data, IT decision-makers will seek vendors that can ensure comprehensive end-through-end network visibility into the entire service delivery stack.
As the world gets better at defending endpoints, threat actors will need to improve their game in order to penetrate more difficult targets, and social engineering will continue to be a preferred vector of attack.
