About The Report
In the Hype Cycle for Security Operations 2021, Gartner points out, organizations that can easily identify the event types that will impact their business in terms of brand damage or reduced operational capacity, stand a much greater chance of having an effective and measurable security operations capability.
Security operations technologies and services defend IT systems from attack by identifying threats and exposure to vulnerability — enabling effective response and remediation. The innovations included in this Hype Cycle aim to help security and risk management leaders strategize effectively.
Architectural complexity in corporate infrastructure is widening as organizations try to navigate their way through traditional IT infrastructure deployments, cloud-based deployments and hybrid approaches. Security operations technologies are designed to meet the diverse needs of modern organizations across these architectural challenges — providing greater visibility of threats and exposures, greater control, and faster response capabilities that work universally and cohesively. The demands of security are still heavily weighted in favor of effective processes and skilled individuals, with technologies becoming an enabler or efficiency-driver for an already effective SecOps team. The desire for a single platform to consolidate security capability continues to be prevalent in the market
