This IDC study provides technology executives with an understanding of the drivers influencing cybersecurity strategies and attempts to predict the security technology, regulatory compliance, and architectural changes to help decision makers allocate resources to a range of technologies and services that effectively mitigate risk and focus on present and future business value.
A key aspect of the IDC FutureScape framework is its focus on the external drivers (e.g., political, economic, social, technological, environmental, legal, and business) that will shape enterprise strategies. This study takes into account the external forces at play that will create all IT architectures and prompt organizations to modernize their information security programs.
"IT security investments must support a risk-based approach to making business decisions and enable organizations to identify and seize opportunities for growth," says Christian A. Christiansen, vice president, Security Products and Services. "This IDC FutureScape security predictions document supports the security planning process with practical guidance that can be pliable enough to adapt to significant changes."
