The COVID-19 pandemic has forced CISOs (chief information security officers) to modify their strategies to establish secure connections for an ideal remote environment. This is because the occurrences of cyberattacks have increased more than ever. According to industry reports, spear-phishing attacks have increased around 7 times since the pandemic.

Well, dealing with cybercriminals is an arduous task, and that's why companies have to up their game to secure customers' classified information, devices, networks, etc. This could be why the demand for cybersecurity providers is rising persistently.  

Security automation, remote access, perimeter security, etc., are some of those areas that require more attention, time, and capital. Let's discuss some unsolved opportunities that cybersecurity providers want to solve:

No proper visibility

A lack of visibility into digital infrastructure is the prime reason companies fail to identify threats at the right time. According to a survey conducted by McKinsey, around 60% of buyers of operational security applications manage to analyze and classify below 40% of their data.

In this scenario, the ideal solution is to bring technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc., into operations to increase transparency significantly. Such technologies help reduce false positives so that you can quickly fix problems related to unpatched systems, misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, etc. Consequently, you will be able to identify risks in the early stages, which leads to quick rectification.

Technological fragmentation

Being a cybersecurity provider is not easy because you and your team should do your best to prevent future cyberattacks. This is not an easy task because you have to be sure about the nature of the attack, the method used, timing, scale, etc. When multiple factors are involved, you fear reducing the number of security applications because you never know which app can come to your rescue.

The key to fixing technological fragmentation is to adopt SaaS-based software and maintain a healthy relationship with the provider so that there will be no room for security loopholes. It's a no-brainer that when the right tool is deployed, you enjoy easy access to your data and quickly get rid of ineffective strategies.

A dearth of talent

There are plenty of jobs in the cybersecurity field, but the problem is the unavailability of the right talent. Due to this, cybersecurity providers have been struggling to deliver first-class services to their clients.

Technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc., help prevent cyberattacks. However, it doesn't mean that human intervention is not required. There are times when natural intelligence succeeds where artificial one struggles.

You should keep a close eye on your exit interviews so that you can retain loyal employees for a long-term relationship. Moreover, skill development programs should be conducted periodically so that job satisfaction never drops and employees stay excited to work for your organization.

Wrapping up

Threat actors are active now more than ever because they know that companies have adopted a hybrid work model. Besides, when all cybersecurity team members do not work simultaneously, there is an excellent possibility for hackers to get into the system and steal confidential data to carry out illegal activities. This is the main reason why the demand for cybersecurity providers is at its peak.
