Researchers predict software security will continue to struggle to keep up with cloud and IoT in the new year.
IT security professionals have largely spent the year managing a once-in-a-generation workforce shift from office to home in 2020. With the initial push over, experts predict that 2021 will be focused on shoring up the cloud and re-imagining organizational workflows under this new normal. Software security will be critical in this environment.
That’s according to researchers from Checkmarx, which just published its 2021 Software Security Predictions report. It envisions a new era for software-development teams, including a focus on better application security tools, scaling on-premise security tools to the cloud and better protecting internet-of-things (IoT) devices.
