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 move to the cloud is so huge. It's a massive area for cybersecurity for the next 12 months.
It's not just about the technology to enable organisations to work remotely; it's also about the fact that the network traffic is increasing because people are working from these different locations. What follows traffic is security, so there will be spending that is increased in network security to support that.
That's the big prediction. A smaller one to bear in mind is frictionless biometrics.
Frictionless biometric authentication is going to increase - whether that is facial recognition, iris recognition or voice recognition is going to increase.
It will be interesting to see how that goes in a post-COVID world.
