Impacts and Recommendations

  • Security spending will increase in 2015 as organizations seek IT infrastructure protection; network and data security will be significant areas for budget increases, which bodes well for providers of these solutions
  • About one-third of organizations expect to increase their security staff in 2015, which means TSPs have opportunities to offer staff augmentation and managed security services, among others
  • Organizations are increasingly measuring security solution effectiveness in business terms to avoid poorly defined security policies, which means TSPs might need to alter their solutions or approach
