This IDC Market Perspective aims to update our security prognostications, assess the short-term impacts, and provide additional insights on the future. The dramatic force of change, driven by COVID-19, and the resulting mass migration of workers, students, and others to a home-based existence is unprecedented. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted enterprises to mobilize around work from home (WFH) to slow the virus' spread, care for employee well-being, and ensure business continuity. The passage of time has given us the benefit of data and information.

"The COVID-19 pandemic is not just another crisis; it has fundamentally changed the manner in which work is done, the IT systems that enable that work, and security measures that support both. The importance of time to value, the advantage of incumbent vendors, and the acceleration of the movement to the cloud are among the key security themes of note," according to Frank Dickson, program vice president, Security and Trust.
