According to Gartner, by 2023, the average CIO will be responsible for more than three times the endpoints they manage in 2018.
IT say Hello to OT
One of the primary drivers behind this endpoint increase will be the expansion in the number of IoT and OT endpoints. The role of IT is evolving and the IT department, CIOs and CISOs are going to have to become more operational focused in order to effectively manage security in the ever more connected world of business.
Forescout Leading the Way
