International Data Corporation (IDC) has published the IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Future of Trust 2022 Predictions — India Implications report. The hybrid work models have compelled enterprises to re-assess their enterprise strategies to ensure seamless and secure transition across both on-premises and cloud environments. Digital trust will act as the fundamental pillar to ensure the long-term resilience and success of businesses, moving forward.
“There is a marked shift in enterprise’s approach towards security, in the wake of expanding threat landscape.
