As we start each year, the team at iSheriff looks into the crystal ball and makes predictions for the year. Sometimes we're right and sometimes we're wrong, but we find it useful to look to the future and document what we see.
Here's the second prediction for 2016:
Devices that come and go off the network will continue to cause security issues. This movement coupled with the ongoing BYOD trend will continue to confound security managers who know it’s imperative to secure all endpoints, but lack the proper tools to do so effectively. Without proper tools, administrators are left to choose between over-restricting access and reducing user functionality.
Fortunately, the pervasive scope of this challenge is driving rapid growth in the endpoint security market, which is expected to be worth more than $17 billion within 5 years. Companies must be diligent about creating and enforcing BYOD policies that include a verification capability. Engaging the whole organization in secure BYOD campaigns can help promote a culture of responsibility and awareness.
