If 2018 is anything like 2017 we’re in for a ride—especially when we’re talking about the cloud market. Cloud solutions may lack some of the drama we’ve seen in American politics this past year, but those of us involved in the cloud transformation know it’s an exciting time to be a part of this growing, innovating space.
We think 2018 is going to be just as exciting, both at the company and industry level, with hybrid solutions ready to tackle pressing issues such as ransomware and with cloud companies facing an interesting funding market. Here are four predictions that we think will help drive the cloud market in 2018.
Dealing With Ransomware a Different Way
Ransomware is a hot topic, and for good reason. Ransomware attacks continue to dominate the news and have even become mainstream enough that every organization, small and large, is both aware and alarmed. Protecting against ransomware attacks is tricky. There’ll always be a new villain that comes up with a new vulnerability to exploit. So, even given the best security software, companies continuously live with the probability that at some point they be under attack.
