Description

COVID-19 has brought about major changes for companies and industries globally. Numerous employees work remotely, companies increasingly pursue digital transformation initiatives, and more applications are being moved to the cloud. Within this context, what role does security play for IT decision makers? This study analyzes two major Frost & Sullivan surveys—the 2020 IT Decision Makers Survey and The 2020 Global Cloud User Survey. The primary goals of this research are to identify the priorities IT decision makers have in the COVID era, establish whether they are linked to security concerns, and determine the impact of network security on organizations during the pandemic. It also investigates how security concerns influence technology purchases and implementation, including digital transformation and cloud deployment decisions.


Research Highlights

The study provides insights about:

  • The current state of security and its link to worker empowerment
  • The top challenges for IT/Telecom departments over the next two years
  • The top decision-making factors taken into account for the implementation and purchase of technology solutions - The deployment of cybersecurity in the cloud and the main reasons for repatriation
  • The top investment priorities for companies
  • The impact of ensuring network security on organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic
