Surge in Remote Workforce & VPN Deployments Instigate Fresh Wave of Opportunities

DUBLIN, Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “Deception Technology – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics” report has been added to’s offering.

Its Not CIOs or CFOs, Its COVID-19 Driving Digital Transformation in Enterprises Worldwide

With COVID-19 emerging to be the biggest driver of digital transformation, cybersecurity technologies and services have shot into the spotlight on the back of heightened risks of more sophisticated cyber-attacks. The pandemic is ushering in a new era of cyber security and the global market for Deception Technology, under this scenario, is projected to reach US$4.6 billion by the year 2027 trailing at a CAGR of 13. 7% over the analysis period.

IT landscape today remains irreversibility changed with companies migrating to new operating models; reassessing IT security architectures; resetting security systems to plug-in digital holes; and adopting innovative remote working technologies. Highlighting the acceleration in digital transformation is the fact companies have digitally transformed within weeks to ensure business continuity as lockdowns and restrictions confine billions of people to their homes. Over 60% of companies in North America, Europe and Asia expect to witness a higher velocity of change in digital transformation during the years 2020 through 2023.

Ushered In by the Pandemic, WFH Will be the New Culture of the Future

In the United States, in the pre-pandemic period only 5% to 7% of the country`s workforce was working from home (WFH) although over 58% held jobs compatible with remote work. However, over 35% to 40% will work from home multiple-days-a-week by the end of 2021. The pandemic is creating a global `Work-At-Home` culture which will very likely last beyond the crisis. Against this backdrop, every company needs a well-thought-out work-at-home and business continuity plan. Digital transformation is now visible in all industrial sectors.

Tele health will replace doctor visits by 2025; by 2021 new home constructions will include co-working spaces highlighting the permanence of remote working; supply chain 4.0 will reach 100% adoption by 2025; eCommerce will account for 60% of retail spending by 2020 and block chain & tokenization will be integrated into financial services by 2023. Digital technologies provide productivity, security, efficiency, agility, workforce re-skilling, and customer experience advantages, all of which are vital during times of crisis like the current pandemic. The pandemic is helping test the effectiveness of digital solutions and in the post pandemic world digital innovation will accelerate even further.

Enterprises Cannot Deceive Themselves Anymore. Cybersecurity Issues Are Spiraling.

As reliance on digital technologies spirals, cybersecurity measures will also witness a parallel increase in focus driving fresh opportunities for deception technology. With organizations across the board opening more number of sites for remote access, there is greater risk of remote connections and remotely-accessed assets coming under threat of cyber attacks. Deception technology is a new and upcoming cybersecurity platform that seeks to prevent damage from cybercriminals who have infiltrated a network. By creating decoys and traps that imitate legitimate corporate assets across the infrastructure, the technology aims at providing early and accurate detection of threats that have bypassed perimeter security controls.

VPN Comes Under Threat as Usage Surges. Deceiving the Intruder Will Level the Playing Field With Cyber Attackers

The astounding spike in the number of remote and mobile workers over the last couple of months has brought VPN infrastructures are under immense risk. VPN usage has spiked in parallel to the increase in COVID-19 infections. In Italy, USA, Spain, Germany, Iran and France, VPN usage in March 2020 increased by 175.2%, 132.5%, 62.1%, 48.4%, 51.9%, 47.4% respectively.
