If you think worries about cyber security in the cloud are dissipating as cloud services continue to proliferate, you’re mistaken. IT and security executives remain quite concerned about threats—maybe even more so than in the past.
Total spending on information security products and services will reach more than $114 billion globally in 2018, an increase of 12.4% from last year, according to advisory company Gartner.
Most CISOs surveyed by Bitdefender trust next generation security, including endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities, as the best security approach against advanced attacks. Security audits, and traditional security - endpoint protection platforms - come second and third, mentioned by more than a third of respondents, according to a Bitdefender survey of 1,000+ CISOs from large companies in the US and Europe.
Some 37 percent of chief information officers in the US and Europe admit their company has suffered a breach in the past year, a slight increase from 34 percent in 2016. However, continuous adoption of endpoint detection and response tools has helped them gain more visibility into cyber attacks - from 26% two years ago, to 84% in 2018, according to Bitdefender’s Advanced Threat Index, an annual survey of 1,000+ CISOs in the US and Europe.
Many companies today do business in more complex environments than ever. They work with numerous third-party partners including suppliers, B2B customers, vendors, cloud providers, managed services providers, consulting firms, and others.
The Future Today Institute, an organization that provides forecasts about how emerging technology will disrupt business and transform the workforce, has once again looked into its crystal ball—and cyber security executives might not be thrilled with the predictions.

As 250,000 new malicious programs and an increasing number of tailor-made threats try to wreak havoc on corporate IT infrastructures each day, CISOs face a seemingly impossible challenge: to add better protection while remaining fast and flexible in tackling modern threats.
In an increasingly hostile landscape where large cyberattacks make headlines virtually every month, companies have started shifting their security defense paradigm toward gaining more visibility into the way attacks occur, and how they become targets.
Companies provide detailed reports on previous and identified cyberattacks to their managers or board of directors every eight months on average, according to a recent survey of 1,050 chief information security officers in the US and Europe.
As 250,000 new malicious programs and an increasing number of tailor-made threats try to wreak havoc on corporate IT infrastructures each day, the need for qualified information security personnel is higher than ever. Simultaneously, most companies struggle for rapid incident detection and response, with teams that can’t keep up with the sheer number of alerts their EDR solution identifies, and the difficulties in deploying and maintaining the entire endpoint security architecture.
