Security budgets 'set to increase as technology becomes more advanced'

Security budgets 'set to increase as technology becomes more advanced'

The reliance on technology in all areas of business has advanced dramatically over the past few years.

Many organisations often speak about the potential benefits of emerging technologies, with several high-profile tech trends including big data cloud computing, bring your own device and mobility becoming buzz words in a number of industries

However, there is also an increasing focus on security, with a new Vormetric survey finding that more than half (52 per cent) of firms stated that fears of a data breach are the driving force behind their technological upgrades.

The survey revealed that because of this, more money is being allocated to schemes and initiatives that support or provide a strong security stance, with 42 per cent claiming that security budgets are increasing.

This means that they will be in a position to have ever more sophisticated security systems that are able to maximise the benefits of other technological advances, while delivering an extra level of peace of mind.
