Promisec Predicts Proactive Approaches to Cloud and Mobile Will Be Among Top IT Market Trends in 2013
NEEDHAM, MA, Dec 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Promisec, a leading provider of actionable endpoint management
solutions, today unveiled the biggest issues enterprise IT managers
will face in 2013 and beyond. The company manages millions of
endpoints across enterprises in myriad industries and as such has
unique insight into the security and IT administration trends
organizations will need to address in the year ahead.
While a number of projects were delayed due to the continued
challenging economic climate in 2012, Promisec anticipates IT
spending will be on the rise as companies brace themselves for new
cloud and mobile offerings. In fact, according to a leading research
firm, worldwide IT spending will likely exceed $2.1 trillion in 2013,
up 5.7 percent from 2012.
Against this backdrop and from the company's unique vantage point,
CEO Dan Ross has identified four trends that will shape the market in
2013. They are:
-- The cloud will enable a proactive approach to addressing issues - In
2012, many companies were still very reactionary when it came to
regulatory issues, compliance, and security concerns. In 2013, IT
departments will be more proactive as the regulatory landscape becomes
clearer and cloud solutions enable them to address and remediate
violations easier, faster and less expensively than before.
-- BYOD will focus on enforcement - BYOD has been a hot topic for years,
and most IT organizations have now come to the conclusion that it is
inevitable. As a result, 2013 will be all about enforcing BYOD
policies -- not just for hardware, including smartphones, laptops and
tablets, but also those that span business, security and personal
-- Security will move from monitoring to action - The ability for IT
organizations to effectively monitor endpoints has improved
dramatically. As such, the shift in the year ahead will be toward
quickly acting on any vulnerabilities and threats that are uncovered
before they impact performance or operations. Automation and
remediation will both be critical in enabling this.
-- The biggest IT enemy will lie inside the enterprise network - Networks
are now well secured, so hackers have started to look elsewhere for
opportunities. In 2013, they will move to the end user and this is
where the biggest risks will be. This applies not just to the devices
themselves, but also to the more robust set of applications end users
demand and the sheer volume and value of data these devices now hold.
As a result, robust endpoint management and security will be
"Based on our conversations with clients and prospects, we're convinced
that 2013 will be a turning point for IT administrators to become
more proactive instead of reactive to critical security and IT admin
issues," said Ross. "As a result of these trends, it's absolutely
critical to have an added layer of robust intelligence that can
augment existing solutions and ensure IT organizations are maximizing
not only their existing investments, but also their time and
resources. We look forward to serving our customers in 2013 and
