As cyber crime becomes more sophisticated and even a method of warfare, technologies such as machine learning, Big Data, and blockchain will become prominent. The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has opened up numerous points of vulnerabilities, compelling cyber security companies, especially startups, to develop innovative solutions to protect enterprises from emerging threats.
"Deploying Big Data solutions is essential for companies to expand the scope of cyber security solutions beyond detection and mitigation of threats,” said Hiten Shah, Research Analyst, TechVision. "This technology can proactively predict breaches before they happen, as well as uncover patterns from past incidents to support policy decisions."
Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, ‘Envisioning the Next-Generation Cyber security Practices’, presents an overview of cyber security in enterprises and analyses the drivers and challenges to the adoption of best practices in cyber security. It also covers the technologies impacting the future of cyber security and the main purchase factors.
"Startups need to make their products integrable with existing products and solutions as well as bundle their solutions with market-leading solutions from well-established companies," noted Shah. "Such collaborations will lead to mergers and acquisitions, ultimately enabling companies to provide more advanced solutions."
Technologies that are likely to find the most application opportunities include:
