2021 greatly reshaped the way people live and work. Now that we have reached 2022, here are some key highlights that Zyxel observed and would urge businesses of today to pay attention to.

Trend 1: Location - Independent Security

Till now, assets, access devices, and users are all over the place due to the pandemic, fragmenting your security perimeters. Organizations must be able to integrate security services to work together to create a dynamic security environment. According to Gartner, by 2024, organizations adopting a cybersecurity mesh architecture to integrate security tools to work as a collaborative ecosystem will reduce the financial impact of individual security incidents by an average of 90%.

Trend 2: Ransomware-as-a-Service Turning to SMBs

In recent years, malware developers offer their ransomware to hackers.Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) has been an incredibly efficient vehicle for maximizing profits. With large organizations pouring investment and resources into cybersecurity, low budget and no resources SMBs are targets for ransomware attacks. For them, small businesses and mid-sized business are just as lucrative as a large enterprise.

 Trend 3: Hybrid Cloud Will Be the Top Strategic Technology

 As the increase of attacks extend towards the cloud, there will be more and more organizations communicating between on-premises infrastructure and public cloud. Hybrid clouds allow IT to better manage and protect their data and apps between the two environments.
