Next Ten IT Infrastructure and Security Trends for 2012-7 Next

In Symantec’s State of Cloud survey, security was recognized as the top concern and the top goal for organizations of all sizes considering the cloud. Cloud security services such as email security and Web-filtering technology allow SMBs to get enterprise-class security-as-a-service that is always up-to-date on the latest threats.  In a recent CompTIA survey of SMBs, nearly one-third have already adopted cloud technology and another 35 percent plan to use the cloud in some form this year. Now that SMBs have developed some comfort-level with the cloud for storage and backup (71 percent of SMB cloud use is for backup and storage), Symantec predicts that SMBs will flock to the cloud for their security needs. That’s why in 2012 Symantec expects SMBs will harness the power of cloud solutions for security.

For many, 2011 will be recalled as the year of the data breach as companies of all sizes made headlines for losing valuable data. Small businesses were no exception as cyber criminals found SMBs as a new favorite target. Looking forward, the threat landscape won’t be getting any better but Symantec foresees 2012 as a year of action for businesses where they’ll start taking tangible steps to protect their businesses from the threats they face.
