It's also important to consider the effectiveness of older solutions – some systems simply can't properly guard against today's advanced and sophisticated threats.Other legacy security solutions were created to protect against a certain threat, which is no longer relevant to hackers and no longer used."[S]ecurity services will continue to be the fastest growing segment – especially IT outsourcing, consulting and implementation services," Bradley wrote."However, hardware support services will see growth slowing, due to the adoption of virtual appliances, pubic cloud and software as a service (Saa S) editions of security solutions, which reduces the need for attached hardware to support overall." Whether your organization is looking to support a managed security provider partnership, or leverage leading software solutions, there are a few budget challenges that you should be aware of.Without proper consolidation, the IT architecture can include unnecessary environments that only increase the overall complexity and make infrastructure more difficult to secure.Sprawl isn't unique to IT platforms themselves, however.
"IT security solutions that create cohesive protection across a company's attack surface can be of great benefit, especially for organizations impacted by the cyber security skills shortage," Trend Micro reported.Compounding this problem is the fact that many businesses are operating under plateaued or shrinking budgets, creating a situation in which they have to protect against a wider range of vulnerabilities with fewer resources.With all this being said, the C-suite has its work cut for it heading into 2018."As this lack of skilled talent persists, security professionals are relying more on their existing security platforms, which help support reduced management and more proactive, automatic protection." Having too many security products in place and a lack of proper personnel management can spell disaster for your company's IT protection in 2018.Cybercriminals are constantly searching for vulnerabilities and developing more sophisticated forms of attack.
