Four IT and Security Trends to Watch:

Risks identified in last year’s report — remote devices, inconsistent patching, and failing security controls — continue to challenge organizations, increasing the threat of data breaches or compliance violations.

Endpoint complexity is escalating as more applications are installed to support new ways of working.

Compromised security controls are widening a gap already ripe for exploit.
