Cybersecurity has become one of the top concerns for both commercial enterprises and government agencies. (See this recent blog post on the topic of IT Asset Management and cybersecurity). In its October 2014 FutureScape for CIO Agenda report, IDC predicted that by 2017, 80% of the CIO’s time will be focused on analytics, cybersecurity and creating new revenue streams through digital services. They also predicted that by 2016, security will be a top 3 business priority for 70% of CEOs of global enterprises. IDC has published a research report, IDC PeerScape: Practices for Next-Generation IT Asset Management that focuses on ITAM best practice processes to mitigate cybersecurity risk.
Join Bill Keyworth, VP of Research from IDC, and Flexera Software as we discuss a cybersecurity strategy that leverages Software License Optimization technologies to automate these best practice processes. Get actionable guidance for reducing the business risk associated with cyber threats. Register today!
