IDC predicts that by the end of 2022, half of the Asia/Pacific economy will be based on or influenced by digital technologies. As a result, organisations will increase leverage of digital technologies to address the rapidly evolving needs of hybrid work, consistent customer experiences and operational autonomy.
Identity management solutions have become the cornerstone to manage user identities better. Identity security was the top area of focus for more than 40% of organisations surveyed in IDC's Asia/Pacific Security Services Survey across 879 organisations in the Asia/Pacific region. Although most enterprises have already implemented low-hanging opportunistic and incremental technologies such as multifactor authentication, about 80% of enterprises intend to continue to retain or increase their spending in advanced authentication/multifactor authentication during 2022. Join us in a session to discover where further gains are expected to bear fruit, and what IDC's expectations on the shift to cloud identity services will look like in the next 5 years.
