If you follow PCR’s daily newsletter then you will be familiar with the frequency of news on cyber security we regularly cover. Just the other day we reported on Bloomberg’s findings that cyber security spending is headed for $200 billion a year as the market switches to cloud-based security with the network and endpoint security sectors likely to see the fastest growth. Since COVID-19 has accelerated the shift towards digitisation, many businesses are now looking to adopt a more robust security infrastructure and the May issue of PCR reflects this market demand, in addition to the rapidly accelerating field of biometrics that is bringing a whole new dimension of security access control.
In this issue QBS: Alpha Gen, the UK’s Cyber Security Value Added Distributor arm of QBS, Hitachi Security Business Group discuses the latest advances in biometrics.
In our big interview with BullGuard we look at cybersecurity, the burgeoning gaming industry and the need for greater security.
In our channel security focused round table, we talk to Amanda Adams at CrowdStrike, Antony Byford, at Westcon UK & Ireland and Anton Shelepchuk, from NAKIVO about the underworld of cyber crime and what the channel needs to consider to stay safe.
In our Biometric security Q&A we find out more about Corsight’s facial recognition technology and Kaspersky’s views on biometric technology.
