ESG Research Report: 2019 Technology Spending Intentions Survey

Abstract:

In order to assess technology spending priorities over the next 12-18 months, ESG recently surveyed 810 IT and business professionals representing midmarket (100 to 999 employees) and enterprise-class (1,000 employees or more) organizations in North America and Western Europe. All respondents were personally responsible for or familiar with their organizations’ 2018 IT spending as well as their 2019 IT budget and spending plans at either an entire organization level or at a business unit/division/branch level.

ESG Master Survey Results: Trends in Cloud Data Security

Abstract:

ESG conducted a comprehensive online survey of IT and cybersecurity professionals from private- and public-sector midmarket (i.e., 100 to 999 employees) and enterprise (i.e., 1,000+ employees) organizations in North America (United States and Canada) between August 16, 2018 and September 6, 2018. To qualify for this survey, respondents were required to be IT/information security/risk management professionals responsible for evaluating and purchasing cloud security technology products and services.

ESG Brief: Toward Cybersecurity Technology Platforms

Abstract:

Enterprise organizations anchor their cybersecurity requirements with an army of disconnected point tools today, but this strategy no longer offers the scale, efficacy, or efficiency needed for preventing, detecting, and responding to cyber-attacks. To address this mismatch, ESG research indicates that many organizations are already consolidating the number of vendors and tools they use for security today, replacing point tools with integrated security technology architectures. This portends a new era of security products—cybersecurity technology “platforms.” This raises questions such as: What is a security platform? What are the most important attributes of a cybersecurity technology platform?

ESG research reveals the answers to these questions, providing a roadmap for security professionals and technology vendors.

ESG Brief: Cybersecurity Landscape: The Evolution of Enterprise-class Vendors

Abstract:

Security strategies based upon disconnected point tools are ineffective and inefficient. As a result, many organizations are consolidating security technologies and winnowing down their list of vendors while building a security architecture based upon tightly coupled security controls and services. This transition has several ramifications. On the demand side, it is altering security technology procurement behavior where organizations are spending more money with fewer vendors. Of course, this is having a boomerang effect on the supply side as security vendors integrate their products and services with the hopes of offering enterprise-class cybersecurity “platforms” covering threat prevention, detection, and response capabilities across endpoints, networks, servers, and cloud-resident workloads. This brief examines these trends through the eyes of 232 IT and cybersecurity professionals. The data reveals existing cybersecurity technology strategies and the challenges they present. It proceeds to investigate how organizations plan to address these challenges through technology integration, vendor consolidation, and a move toward cybersecurity “platforms.”

ESG Brief: Imanis Data Launches Version 4.0 and Delivers Machine Learning-based RPO

Abstract

Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are pervasive in production environments and require enterprise-class data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities. That’s the problem Imanis Data is zooming in on. Imanis Data is demonstrating that it is squarely focused on product execution and is putting its B-round of $13.5 million from earlier this year to good use. The recent announcement of v 4.0 introduces many new data protection features, including some innovative machine learning-based capabilities.
