Security Software Consumption In Cloud Business

Patterns Of Security Software Consumption In Cloud Business

With an increasing number of people getting involved in the world of technology, there are significant security issues that need to be considered as well. The involvement of different departments in this is thought to change the overall trend of the entire marketplace. The way these virtual techniques are replacing the traditional hardware is something that might grow of concern to the governments of countries as they strive to maintain high levels of security.

What Are Some Of The Issues To consider In 2013 Regarding Cloud Computing?

There are a number of predictions that have been made about cloud computing for the year 2013, which include:

Cloud computing structures would become something of national importance in the years to come. This would mean that the governments would have to include considerations for these structures in their level of operations because of the negative impacts that cloud computing might have. There can be numerous disruptions within the cloud computing initiatives such as attacks on the service providers of the cloud computing managers. This is an important consideration because with the growth of technology and heavy reliance on technology for almost all matters of the economy, the government cannot afford to expose itself to the risks associated with cloud computing as more and more people rely on public computing activities which are open to the majority.

A 10% reliance on cloud computing: It is expected that about 10% of the IT security services would be seen to be overtaken by the cloud computing. Because of a reduction in operational costs, the ease of deploying various IT methods and highlighting salient factors that kick off demand, cloud computing seems to be integral in the near future.

20% of the firewall market in the virtual segment rather than the physical segment: It is expected that the overall growth in the firewall market would largely be triggered from the virtual players of the industry. At present, the only importance that the firewall market has is through the data-center-class firewalls; this is a very minor segment of the firewall market. It has become exceedingly important to differentiate the firewall market now through improved security systems- customers need to transfer data and information over secure means and this can only be achieved by having high levels of security within the firewall market in place.

Therefore, as much as it is appealing to probe into the tech savvy world, there is a dire need to protect information and to channel it over secure methods. Cloud computing is the next in thing, and it certainly has to be made easy and secure to work with.

Hoarders And Data Collectors: On The Brink Of Unmanageability

Hoarders and Data Collectors In our physical world, hoarders are deemed “out of control” when they collect too much.  Surely the same analogy applies in our online world.  When providers collect realms of data from us, it seems they lose control of that too?  In the last months it’s not just the frequency of data…

How Data Science And Machine Learning Is Enabling Cloud Threat Protection

Data Science and Machine Learning Security breaches have been consistently rising in the past few years. Just In 2015, companies detected 38 percent more security breaches than in the previous year, according to PwC’s Global State of Information Security Survey 2016. Those breaches are a major expense — an average of $3.79 million per company,…
