10 Cybersecurity Lessons Learned In 2016 (So Far)
Security Will Only Continue To Grow
While some analysts and big-name vendors predicted a security slowdown in 2016, all indications are pointing to the year being bigger than ever when it comes to security spending. Solution providers say security spending remains one of the top customer priorities for the year. According to a recent report by Cybersecurity Ventures, worldwide spending on security products and services will hit $1 trillion during the five-year period between 2017 and 2021, a market that founder Steve Morgan said presents a big opportunity for solution providers.
"The cybersecurity space is ripe for VARs," Morgan told CRN in an email. "Corporations of all sizes and governments globally are turning to security outsourcers for help. VARs with deep domain experience in cybersecurity are few and far between, and in high demand for their consulting and advisory services," he said.
