2Anywhere, Anytime Access to Files Will Further Strain IT
3Big Data Analysis Will Mandate the Need for Secure File Transfers at All Levels
4Third-Party Apps Will Present Bigger Problems
The threat of malware will increase through Trojan horse-type apps disguising themselves as innocuous apps. Hackers will use these new hacking techniques to up the ante and look to steal more important IP and enterprise research. Even children coming to work with parents present a problem as their applications and devices pose security risks on corporate networks. IT will look at ways to secure the IT environment.
5Authentication Will Become Easier
If users have to enter a PIN for every app they use, they won’t bring the device in to be managed. The hunt will be on for less onerous authentication processes. The heavy lifting of authentication will be done behind the scenes, invisible to the user, and will integrate more biometric/fingerprint information for access.
6New Compliance Rules Will Put More Emphasis on Reporting and Secure Fax Transmissions
7Collaboration Widens Market for Secure File Transfer
By doing more with the same or fewer resources, people will need to find ways to boost their productivity. With more self-service applications that reduce reliance on IT, users can get things done more quickly with better feedback and responsiveness as they share and collaborate with internal and external users.
9Securing BYOD in the Enterprise
The cloud is great for many applications, but the more security-conscious organizations will still have reservations about comingling of data with potential data, vendor access to information and concerns about vendors giving up data to the National Security Agency. We will see many enterprises unwilling to give up control of their data, especially in highly regulated industries.
11Virtualization and FOIP
More and more organizations will virtualize their fax environments. Companies have come to realize the cost savings and productivity benefits derived from deploying a FOIP (fax over IP) server that integrates with their existing equipment to route faxes over their IP network.
