Okta ranks the most popular and fastest-growing apps in the enterprise

An interesting comparison is between the CIS top controls and what organisations are actually spending money on. The top two CIS controls are inventories for hardware and software. Knowing what you want to protect and whats attached to your network are where it all starts. That’s not relected in the IDC list below…:

[…] According to International Data Corporation, “worldwide spending on security-related hardware, software, and services is forecasted to reach $106.6 billion in 2019, an increase of 10.7% over 2018.” The average company deploys more than 150-security focused tools, and Okta concludes, based on findings of the past four years, there is a new modern security stack consisting of four layers of security, which it designates as:

  • people (not only focusing on accounts and credentials, but physical security solution)
  • devices (includes tools for security analytics, endpoint management and security and certificate management)
  • network ( secure web gateway tools, VPNs and firewalls, and proxies)
  • Infrastructure (content delivery network providers, server access, and infrastructure monitoring tools)

Using the most popular tool in each of the four security layers, the report presents what it would look like:

  1. people: KnowBe4
  2. devices: Jamf Pro
  3. network: Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access (formerly GlobalProtect)
  4. infrastructure: New Relic
