Weekly Summary (8/8/2022): The movement marches onward, and wow, are there dollars to back that assertion up. The report this week on the growth of the ZT specific market is staggering. I don’t recall seeing numbers like these on a security market sector anytime in my memory. The ZT market is estimated to have about a 17 percent CAGR in the next 6 years and hit roughly $70 billion globally. So there is money in this space and we know that drives adoption more than anything else. Dollars talk, marketing walks to be frank. Finally, if you look at the report about email being the main vector of infection and compromise it should make anyone think, “Why is my organization continuing to invest in tech that is proven to not fix the issue?” That’s a logical question and the data proves it. Stop “trusting” humans and employ technology correctly.
