Worldwide Cloud Workload Security Market Shares, 2021: Prepare for a Wild Ride
This IDC study presents the worldwide cloud workload security market shares for 2021.
"Moving applications from the premises to the cloud changes the requirements for protections as our applications are always available to the internet; they are in the cloud after all. However, the rules of the software code protections game are simultaneously changing as applications move from monolithic to microservices based, linking hundreds or even thousands of loosely coupled services that are dynamic, ephemeral, and highly distributed. More complexity is also accompanied by richer metadata context, providing different opportunities for anomalous behavior detection. Taking advantage of the richer metadata context is the trick though, demanding much from cloud security providers as doing it poorly generates noise and a sea of false flags." — Frank Dickson, group vice president, Security and Trust at IDC
