John Harris, President and CEO
Cybersecurity lodged on SASE, zero trust and managed detection and response (MDR) opportunities continue to expand as threats on the attack surface become stronger and more aggressive in 2023. Data applications, data protection, and cloud security are areas getting more attention while managed detection and response will also thrive as organizations look for better ways to secure their environments. IOT/OT for energy and utilities organizations is another area where we see potential growth, plus safety and security in transportation and manufacturing industries are a growing concern.
