Security Predictions 2016: The emergence of smart, integrated, cloud-based security services will enable a transformation

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.

The last installment in our predictions series focuses on the promise of the cloud:

The emergence of smart, integrated, cloud-based security services will enable a transformation from an alert-centric to an intelligence-centric approach to security. Cloud-based security enhances visibility by spotting anomalies and correlating events across millions of end users. Using the power of Big Data, we can move away from managing a daily deluge of alerts. Beyond the obvious efficiencies of integration (no more silos, fewer vendors), running advanced analytics is more effective when security infrastructure components can talk to each other. Analyzing interdependent activity and automatically enforcing policies across all endpoints and contexts drives an intelligence-based approach to security. Visualization tools and dashboards render the intelligence more accessible, and make it easier to spot attacks and vulnerabilities. Global cloud-based services can provide broad reach across all components of the extended, distributed enterprise infrastructure and beyond.
