KuppingerCole Predictions and Recommendations 2014

On Monday this week, we have published the KuppingerCole Predictions and Recommendations for 2014. They differ from other publications of people looking into the crystal ball in one important aspect: we not only provide our predictions, but also recommendations. More on that below.

Information Security is in constant flux. With the changing threat landscape, as well as a steady stream of innovations, demand for Information Security solutions is both growing and re-focusing. Based on new offerings and changing demand, KuppingerCole predicts several major changes in the Information Security market. KuppingerCole specifically identified the following areas where we see massive change in 2014:

  • Software Defined Networking (SDN) – Software Defined Computing Infrastructures (SDCI)
  • Integrated Real-time Network Security Analytics
  • Cloud IAM (Identity and Access Management)
  • Digital, Smart Manufacturing & Smart Infrastructure: ICS & SCADA
  • API Economy
  • IoEE (Internet of Everything and Everyone)
  • BYOI (Bring Your Own Identity) and Biometric Authentication
  • Big Data
  • Cloud Service Provider Selection and Assurance
  • Ubiquitous Encryption
The document provides both predictions and recommendations. The latter focus on how organizations should react to the changes we predict. It is not always best to jump on every trend and hype – in many cases, it is about defining strategies first and performing organizational changes before starting to implement new types of technologies. Do not rely on predictions only.

Have a look at our document. The best place to learn more about these topics is the upcoming European Identity and Cloud Conference (EIC) 2014, Munich, May 13th to 16th. And don’t miss all our current and upcoming research on these topics.
