Technology moves fast. In today’s marketplace, there’s no shortage of vendors positioning their solutions in an attempt to help move the needle for your business, one way or another. It is paramount for security vendors to not only support business continuity, but also to enable the business. As more and more organizations look to cloud technologies to make their business more agile, the risk inevitably becomes inflated. DoControl is here to address a wide range of threat models that exist within one of the most critical tools to drive business enablement: Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
Gartner states in both reports that “SaaS is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.5% according to Forecast Analysis: Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services, Worldwide.”
In our opinion, the continued growth in the SaaS market creates a significant opportunity for security vendors – the market is greenfield. Security needs to scale in-line with business growth, and if security is meant to be a business enabler, then there is no other approach that will satisfy this requirement effectively.
Gartner also notes in the Emerging Tech Impact Radar: Security report that “the shortage of skilled security practitioners will continue to drive an increased appetite for automation within the security operations field, and artificial intelligence (AI) will be strongly leveraged across a range of products to deliver enhanced security outcomes at greater speed.”
Throughout the last couple of years it’s been the “Great Resignation.” As we close out 2022 and move into 2023, there are strong economic pressures to improve the bottom line which will inevitably result in a reduction in the workforce. While security budgets may not be slashed entirely, attrition is very likely which puts more pressure on the remaining members of the IT and Security team. This in turn only drives the importance for automation higher up. Organizations are having to do more with less, which is exactly what we are trying to help support for modern businesses pursuing a cloud-first strategy.
As a security vendor, we are focused on aiding our customers with upholding their end of the shared responsibility model in the cloud. We aim to do that with automation and scale built into our solutions, that way our customers can leverage cloud technologies to become agile and enable their business – without compromising security or positioning it as an afterthought.
