Security technology requirements are constantly changing with the introduction of GDPR and high-profile incidents in the press.

2. Governments are ramping up laws and regulations surrounding data protection leading to organisations seeking solutions from IT security companies
3. Security products are making a move to the cloud and becoming more agile in the process due to the flexibility and efficiency benefits
4. Machine learning is providing value to simple everyday tasks as well as complex analysis
