Execs and analysts from Bytes, Computacenter, Sapphire, Canalys and Omdia on how they expect the cybersecurity industry to unfold in the second half of the year

The channel has been universally praised for the work it carried out in helping its customers move to remote working models.

But that hard work is by no means complete, with the next challenge set to be helping parts of the workforce return to offices, while other parts stay remote.

The changes to working habits have, and will continue to, change the requirements of cybersecurity providers in the channel. It is this trend that will form the basis of CRN's second DeskFlix event today, which you can register to attend here.

Ahead of the event, five speakers have made their top predictions for the cybersecurity space in the second half of this year. You can hear more from each speaker by attending the DeskFlix event. 

Dave Rawle, CTO, Bytes

Businesses are developing and deploying solutions that provide an underpinning of secure network fabric. The whole secure access service edge, and the products around there, was relevant in terms of SD-WAN and solutions that would layer security into that.

It was relevant before this happens and it's incredibly relevant now. I think it will be a key part of business transformation in the second half of this year in terms of enabling businesses to work remotely and have a dispersed workforce.
