Digital Transformation Market Growth
The emergence of digital operating models is driving great expectations in terms of ease of access and gratification.

- Mobile is increasingly becoming the form-factor of choice, even in the enterprise. The varying context of mobile users makes it even harder to provide a consistent user experience for digital platforms.
Employees are mobile workers at present
Getting digital transformation wrong can be costly to the enterprise.

Data Drives Accuracy
Organisations can access this next generation approach to security through third-party specialists that provide up to date insight into the constantly evolving nature of the threat landscape.
Security As A Service
particularly against DDoS attacks
- Security as a Service, offered by third-party specialists, is significant given the scarcity of skilled security professionals and the cost to retain them.
- For security in general, and particularly protecting against DDoS attacks, size matters. This favours third-party specialists, whose scale in DDoS protection is likely to dwarf a customer organisation.
The ability to harness the cloud is an important point, offering real-time scalability that provides further ammunition when seeking to support customers in addressing attacks without compromising performance.
