10 Security Predictions For 2017
Security Market Consolidation
Consolidation occurred in a big way in 2016, with blockbuster deals from Symantec, Carbon Black, Avast Software and multiple examples of private equity buys. However, industry experts say they expect 2016 was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to consolidation. The expected wave comes as some of the biggest security vendors look to position themselves for the future with next-generation technologies to complement their legacy portfolios. In addition, rumors already have started flying as to which startups will be the first to get snapped up in 2017, although it remains to be seen what deal will kick off what will likely be an interesting year when it comes to security acquisitions.
