As tech companies continue to lay off employees and cut budgets, data center managers will have to figure out how to get the most bang for their buck when securing cloud environments.
Even the largest companies are slashing costs. For example, Meta announced a $4 billion cut in February, which included data center budget cuts.
IT budgets are either flat or falling, said Juan Orlandini, chief architect and distinguished engineer at Insight. “What we are seeing as a general trend is more scrutiny on the current spend levels.”
Meanwhile, the security demands are higher than ever. According to a recent survey by computer and network security company Coalfire, 53% of security executives say that an expanded attack surface created by cloud migration is their biggest security concern.
