Featured decision imperatives include:

  • Specific actions to address the impact of mobile devices and their biometrics capabilities.
  • The impact on large enterprises from custom threat intelligence information.

"Over the years security trends have remained relatively static. It was always about threats and finding the appropriate product to stop attackers. However, the 3rd Platform is changing how security is acquired, deployed, and used," said Charles Kolodgy, Research Vice President for Security Products at IDC. "We are now seeing companies strive to expand the reach of security by better controlling access to information and by utilizing threat intelligence to gain an understanding of what attackers are doing in order to anticipate their actions. Additionally, enterprises are looking for solutions that are closely aligned to the applications they protect."

The IDC FutureScape report that this Web conference is based on will be published and available within 24 hours of the event. To learn more about IDC Predictions and IDC FutureScapes, please visit: www.idc.com/Predictions2015.
