Western Europe Security Software Forecast, 2016–2020: Security is an Enabler in the 3rd Platform Era

The scale of the challenge that today's threat landscape represents requires a new mentality for enterprise security, which is driving security software spend, said Dominic Trott, research manager, IDC European Security Practice. "The burden that falls on internal resources means that business-as-usual approaches are no longer fit for purpose. Instead, measures must be taken that can shift security away from a manual, reactive process to being an automated, proactive one that harnesses software to identify security risks for remediation before they can become breaches."
