The cybersecurity landscape
Cyberthreats and attacks are becoming more nefarious and widespread, and they’re predicted to accelerate. In 2020, Cybersecurity Ventures predicted global cybercrime costs would grow by 15% per year over the next five years, reaching $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion in 2015.1 As data is accessed across devices, on-premises and in the cloud, high-impact data breaches continue to mount. To maintain a more secure environment, businesses must be more comprehensive in their approach.
Digital transformation was the top story in the 2000s and has only accelerated in the 2020s as organizations scramble to adapt to new and rapidly changing business environments. With increased adoption of the software-defined data center (SDDC), organizations have become more dependent on servers as the foundation for business functions. This means server security should be foundational to your overall enterprise defense strategy, guarding against threats right down to the firmware layer.
