Dataops and security strategies


Working from home setups during the COVID-19 pandemic will be benefit security, employee unity, and business functioning in 2021. IT executives mention how the changes they see within organizations are caused by the expansion work from home timings and what they expect for the future.

Endpoint security investments will grow. Research conducted before COVID-19 showed that 70% of IT security professionals said their company had seen endpoint attacks that affected data or IT infrastructures. On the corporate security front, endpoint security’s money spending will increase in 2021 at a greater rate than its past, as the shift to remote work brought about by COVID-19 has exposed countless new security glitches.

From the attackers’ point of view, endpoints have now become more profitable than ever, with a magnetic attack vector aimed at understanding a home network or a personal machine and from there moving sideways with a jump into critical corporate assets (either cloud or on-prem via a VPN connection). This will increase expenditure in endpoint isolation products that separate corporate access from non-corporate/personal access.

DevOps aligns developers and IT teams to boost software delivery and infrastructure changes. DataOps is all about streamlining data preparation so developers can leverage it during the application building process. There has been talking for the last few years about DataOps processes and strategies taking off, but this is yet to be implemented across businesses. In 2021 we can expect to see more DataOps acquisition, requiring companies to understand better traditional organizational barriers and cultural barriers that separate people from data if they want to implement DataOps properly. Companies will also need to reconcile data provisioning’s competing interests to different groups of users to identify and protect personal and sensitive data.

Most employees will continue working remotely in 2021 to slow the spread of COVID-19 until a vaccine can be distributed at full stretch. Consequently, villains are no longer following these employees transparently when looking to flick data. Instead, they will try to take advantage of employees who have been working from home since the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic, as they may be more likely to be letting down their cautiousness when it comes to following security concords. This relaxation on security concords is combined with obstacles present in a rushed remote work environment, resulting in data loss rates exceeding what we saw in 2020.

One of the longest-lasting technological collision of the pandemic will be a “remote everything” system. Companies have a fundamental shift in how companies do business from the expansion of data and cloud to an increase in WFH. Moreover, it is implacable.  Face to face meetings that required travel can now happen whenever and wherever, enabling teams to drive results more quickly and start executing. Traveling again for business will happen. Anticipation is that people will be much more intentional about it. Organizations will want to reconsider how they function in business and find new methods to function in a better way, whether physically, virtually, or both. The change to remote work will open up organizations and their employees to more security threats. As companies look at new business methods, it will be imperative for them to ensure that critical work applications, cloud-based productivity apps, and next-gen collaboration tools are always available and adequately backed up. A clear data protection strategy will be more critical than ever to avoid downtime and lost revenue
