Promisec Predicts Proactive Approaches to Cloud and Mobile Will Be Among Top IT Market Trends in 2013

NEEDHAM, MA, Dec 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Promisec, a leading provider of actionable endpoint management solutions, today unveiled the biggest issues enterprise IT managers will face in 2013 and beyond. The company manages millions of endpoints across enterprises in myriad industries and as such has unique insight into the security and IT administration trends organizations will need to address in the year ahead.


While a number of projects were delayed due to the continued challenging economic climate in 2012, Promisec anticipates IT spending will be on the rise as companies brace themselves for new cloud and mobile offerings. In fact, according to a leading research firm, worldwide IT spending will likely exceed $2.1 trillion in 2013, up 5.7 percent from 2012.

Against this backdrop and from the company's unique vantage point, CEO Dan Ross has identified four trends that will shape the market in 2013. They are: -- The cloud will enable a proactive approach to addressing issues - In 2012, many companies were still very reactionary when it came to regulatory issues, compliance, and security concerns. In 2013, IT departments will be more proactive as the regulatory landscape becomes clearer and cloud solutions enable them to address and remediate violations easier, faster and less expensively than before.

-- BYOD will focus on enforcement - BYOD has been a hot topic for years, and most IT organizations have now come to the conclusion that it is inevitable. As a result, 2013 will be all about enforcing BYOD policies -- not just for hardware, including smartphones, laptops and tablets, but also those that span business, security and personal requirements.

-- Security will move from monitoring to action - The ability for IT organizations to effectively monitor endpoints has improved dramatically. As such, the shift in the year ahead will be toward quickly acting on any vulnerabilities and threats that are uncovered before they impact performance or operations. Automation and remediation will both be critical in enabling this.

-- The biggest IT enemy will lie inside the enterprise network - Networks are now well secured, so hackers have started to look elsewhere for opportunities. In 2013, they will move to the end user and this is where the biggest risks will be. This applies not just to the devices themselves, but also to the more robust set of applications end users demand and the sheer volume and value of data these devices now hold.

As a result, robust endpoint management and security will be essential.

"Based on our conversations with clients and prospects, we're convinced that 2013 will be a turning point for IT administrators to become more proactive instead of reactive to critical security and IT admin issues," said Ross. "As a result of these trends, it's absolutely critical to have an added layer of robust intelligence that can augment existing solutions and ensure IT organizations are maximizing not only their existing investments, but also their time and resources. We look forward to serving our customers in 2013 and beyond." About Promisec Promisec (www.promisec.com) transforms how global companies manage and control their endpoints.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
