Information security technology is undergoing a generational shift. Once thought of as a collection of point solutions, security technology is moving to the cloud, where a coordinated suite of real-time software tools are needed. It has also risen in importance to the CEO's office, where putting together a wide-ranging, cloud-based information technology (IT) security management strategy has become one of the most important business priorities.
These trends are going to fuel increased investment and focus on the security of corporate networks and data over the next five years. This is the conclusion of our most recent report, "Next-Generation Cloud Security," which explains how a wide variety of new software and cloud-based technologies will be employed to protect corporate networks in real time -- and who the leading suppliers are.
