Companies around the world – big or small – are struggling with the looming threats of cyber attacks. Even giant companies like Uber and Microsoft, who are likely trusted to be more secure, aren’t safe. In fact, a study suggests that cyber crime damage costs will hit $6 trillion annually 2021. So needless to say, everyone is more serious about server security than ever.
In 2018, new practices and better infrastructure will replace the old ones that will effectively (but not entirely) tackle the threats of unauthorized data breaches and leakages. Companies will spend more in this department, employing better hardware and hiring security experts. To mitigate the vulnerabilities, they will spend more of their resources in risk management. In short, data protection would be at the top of priority lists for many in 2018.
These are top 5 server management trends that will headline 2018.
Next year, a lot is expected to change in this industry. Better monitoring practices will emerge, infrastructure maintenance will become more affordable, and performance optimization would become essential. These changes will finally do away from the DIY approach. Even the small companies and startups will steer towards outsourcing professionals and third-party solution providers.
So, if you own a business that’s reliant on web, think through these emerging trends and make changes in your strategy accordingly.
