Business owners have the ability to operate remotely, and their attention is shifting towards protecting them against harmful cybersecurity threats. Among all the different approaches they might address the issue, many businesses are opting for either SASE or zero trust strategies.

According to a recent survey of around 3,600 cybersecurity professionals, the adoption of SASE or zero trust is at an all-time high among pharma, medical, and healthcare organizations, closely followed by finance, banking, and insurance.

Data loss prevention (DLP)

Unabhangig of the industry, data loss prevention (DLP) appears to be among the most popular SASE technologies, followed by a secure web gateway, zero trust, and a SD-WAN.

Social engineering remains the most common when it comes to a type of threat, with advanced persistent threats (APT), ransomware (opens in new tab), the exploitation of unpatched systems, and denial of service (DoS) attacks.

The biggest concerns among respondents were the potential harm to the company''s reputation, data theft, and supply chain issues.

Apart from SASE and zero trust, businesses are also expanding towards artificial intelligence (AI) whose use in SecOps has increased by four percent year on year. According to the analysis, many businesses are still looking and developing their AI capabilities and are not yet ready to go public with it. This is a promising statistic for AI''s future.
