Next Gen Data Security
Threat Impact Widens

IDC defines next generation data security as the recognition of the direct link between mastery of data and the ability to protect it.

IDC’s coverage includes technologies at the precipice of disrupting traditional data security models and the transformation of existing data-centric security solutions for both structured and unstructured content. This includes:

  • Encryption technologies
  • Data loss prevention (DLP)
  • User behavioral analytics (UBA)
  • Supervision and monitoring
  • Data tokenization and masking

By 2020, 100 security providers will disappear as another $3B in spend shifts to platform-based models and cloud provider offerings.

By 2022, “cloudjacking” trends increase buyer costs for security and resilience offerings by 20%, as cloud providers pass protection costs on to consumers.

By 2027, biometrics will become a $75 billion industry, led by a 20% year over year surge in facial recognition technology as airlines and governments adopt multimodal biometrics.
