Gartner® Report – Hype Cycle™ for Security Operations, 2022

According to Gartner, “the adoption of remote work, and increased use of mobile devices and cloud services have not slowed over the last 12 months. This has led to expanded requirements for organizations to track risk and threats to a wider set of digital assets.” As a result, “security operations personnel require modern security technologies to quickly detect and mitigate threats and reduce exposure.” But many technologies make bold claims, and it can be difficult for organizations to decipher marketing from reality.
