How is Current Global Situation Affecting IT Trends?

 

With health concerns on the upfront, digital fields are stirred as much as any other field. Let it be cybersecurity, IoT, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Blockchain. These fields need to evolve as service-providers over time with the wake of current events, as more and more workloads are shifting to internet and virtual platforms.

Keeping the current global situation in view, businesses are moving to online platforms. Organizations have changed their working methods to enable remote work ensuring health safety. With that being told, organizations have to consider their security concerns as well. While operating through internet and communication apps, the sensitive data may be compromised to potential attacks. As businesses rely more upon the internet and online working, hackers and attackers have more chance to break into any system unless the system is properly protected. It has ultimately challenged cybersecurity software and setups, to game up so that they can provide up to the mark performance. A few suggestions for security providers to implement could be:

·        Shift to Cloud Technologies:

One of the steps is for organizations to help them shift to cloud computing so that they stay away from the LAN tensions and get properly secured services by reliable service providers. This way, the businesses can resume their daily organizational activities without having to worry about their data space and its security.



·        XDR approach:

Extended Detection and Response (XDR) detects the response of the endpoint access layers. XDR collects and correlates data across email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks, enabling visibility and context into advanced threats. Threats can then be analyzed, prioritized, hunted, and remediated to prevent data loss and security breaches.

·        ZTNA dependency:

Zero-Trust Network Access technologies allow businesses to prevent threats and attacks using a 7-layer protection mechanism with granular user access control. This way, the organizations can keep a check on the inflow of the traffic and detect any unauthorized access.

Along with these factors, organizations can level up their anti-malware software, data loss prevention, firewalls, email, and endpoint security game. All of these provisions can be made possible with an experienced service-provider so that the safety of organizational data is not compromised.

IoT, being a novel field, still working on its security concerns might suffer greater challenges but this is the time to make the maximum out of the crisis.

Cloud computing technologies are greater in demand due to the increasing dependency over software-as-a-service (SaaS) techniques. Almost every business, even for once, considered shifting to the cloud. Organizations should avail of the hybrid services provided by cloud service providers such as multi-factor authentication, strong passwords, certifications, strict security updates, data backups, and proper employee training to understand security concerns and their solutions.

This is the time for these fields to prove to their users and customers that they helped their customers even in the hard times.

To conclude, coming years will not be the same for these fields and to continue making a mark in the technology reign, they have to come up with the best solutions possible.
