Enterprises that have embraced UC&C and UCaaS during the pandemic are now on the hunt for collaboration security solutions. Here are five things enterprises can do right now to make their collaboration platforms more secure.
If you want to predict the Next Big Trend in enterprise IT, just follow the VC money.
Based on the $50 million just raised by startup Theta Lake, collaboration security is heating up.
Theta Lake is developing AI-based compliance and security software specifically for UC and UC&C platforms. In a news release on its VC windfall, the company said it uses ML, DL and NLP “to capture, archive, detect and surface risks across video, visual, voice, chat, document and email content.” (More on this multi-channel model later.)
Enterprises that have embraced UC&C and UCaaS during the pandemic are now hunting for ways to make collaboration more secure. This is fuelling demand for all collaboration security solutions, not just Theta Lake’s. By 2025, Gartner predicts that:
- 45% of enterprises in highly regulated industries will “conduct supervision” of audio and video content to meet compliance standards, up from less than 10% in 2021
- 36% of enterprises will archive workstream collaboration and meeting solutions for non-regulatory requirements (i.e., security), an increase of more than seven-fold from 2021
You can address collaboration security well before 2025. Metrigy Research president Irwin Lazar says there are five things enterprises can do right now to make their collaboration platforms more secure. Here are the five tips he presented at IDC Canada’s recent Future of Information Security Summit.
