2016 Predictions: Cloud set to boost security, options for enterprises
With 2016 now upon us, RCR Wireless News has gathered predictions from leading industry analysts and executives on what they expect to see in the new year.
The security skills shortage will force mid-sized enterprises to simplify: Small businesses and mid-level enterprises, in particular, do not have the security resources or the skilled staff to combat advanced threats. Historically, these organizations have invested in point solutions to automate some aspects of network security, which are costly and time-consuming to manage. In 2016, companies will turn to cloud-based, converged platforms, offered as a managed service that will bundle both strong security capabilities and expertise. Delivered through the cloud, these solutions will help businesses achieve competencies and effective defenses that were previously available only to large enterprises.
