We are now three months into the New Year and might be time to take a look at what you can expect of the latest network monitoring trends. It’s important to keep up with the times, and sometimes that means predicting what may happen in the near future. Of course, taking that into mind, it’s prudent that we not become to far-fetched in our predictions and try to keep within the realms of probability. As such, the following are three network and security predictions that we can see as probable for the year of 2017.

  • Evolution of Malware – As constant as malware is these days, this prediction seems a little obvious. However, it is practical to note that with the evolution of this attack method, there will be a needed evolution of defense. With more and more mobile platforms able to join a workforce’s server, it’s becoming even more important for a business to protect its \elf from malware attacks.
  • AI Applied to Security – With business growth comes the growth of data and the need to monitor it. Most businesses can’t keep up with the vigilance needed to maintain manageable security, and therefore turn to MSPs. However, with the modern world so in threat of data-breaks and cyber attack, it stands to reason that more people will be turning to AI to keep their companies secure. These programs are becoming more prolific and useful with each update, and seem to have a future in our cyber security for some time to come.
  • Increase of Cloud Security – Cloud security breaches are often publicized to the point that no one seems surprised to hear of them anymore. This just won’t do, and more and more programmers agree that cloud security is one of the most important updates we can focus on in the upcoming year. With a more secure Cloud, more data is able to be stored and transferred, freeing up time and space for the business itself. This update is clearly one that will benefit many people across the world, no matter the business type.

2017 is a year filled with possibilities for all businesses, so long as our cyber security and awareness is at the forefront. Be sure to research other upcoming trend predictions, so as to keep on top of what is happening in the cyber world. It never hurts to be prepared.
