Gartner® Predicts 2022:

Consolidated Security Platforms Are the Future

Resilience and productivity are fundamental for organizations looking to invest in security technologies. In a fast-changing threat landscape, how can we reduce the complexity of security operations?

 This Gartner report analyzes the impact of vendor consolidation and how an integrated security approach can provide risk-management leaders with an operationally efficient and modern security platform for their business.

Key Findings:

  • "By 2025, 80% of enterprises will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services and private application access from a single vendor’s security service edge (SSE) platform."
  • "Vendors are increasingly divided into 'platform' and 'portfolio' camps, with the former integrating tools to make a whole that’s greater than the sum of the parts, and the latter packaging products with little integration."
  • "Technology consolidation is not limited to one technology area or even to a closely related set of technologies; these consolidations are happening in parallel across many security areas."
