|Big Data is a challenge that emerging technologies are working to address|
Quantum Secure 2014/2015 Review and Forecast:
As demonstrated by end users’ continued desire to identify and implement technologies that provide the greatest level of protection for people, property and assets, it’s clear that security will always be a necessity.
Today, customers demand strong, demonstrable ROI from those technologies and expect solutions to align with their overall business goals. For example, the C suite and the Board of Directors require metrics that show which policy works or doesn’t, which policies need refinement, or whether a solution to automate those processes is the best choice. Among the biggest pain points organisations face are compliance and concerns about threats from not just external forces, but from insiders as well.
Three top security industry trends in 2015 will be:
Predictive Intelligence. Organisations increasingly desire proactive, relevant information and predictive intelligence to help them understand, anticipate and prevent threats.
Big Data. Collecting, analysing and managing the massive quantities of data generated by intelligent systems to increase responsiveness is a challenge that emerging technologies are working to address.
The Enterprise of Things. As more smart physical control devices are added to the network, the quantity of data will grow, along with the opportunity to increase security, at least for those managed at an enterprise level.
In 2014, Quantum Secure saw tremendous growth across a number of sectors, including aviation, government, finance, petrochemical, energy, high-tech and healthcare. To address end user demands, we continue to form strategic and technology partnerships to create best-in-class solutions. This is part of a growing trend of vendors coming together to provide the means for customers to solve real problems, rather than selling them research-driven technology residing in ineffective siloed systems.
Winners in the security industry will be those who apply business intelligence to the data they are gathering and have policies in place to not only determine trends, but to also take action. Those who look to workflow automation and predictive analytics to understand what is happening in their organisation will also be winners. Conversely, losers will be those who continue to work in the fog of disconnected systems and rely on manual reporting and auditing processes. In 2015, there is simply no reason to continue these antiquated processes given all the available technologies.
