The general macro-economic environment has a significant impact on the cloud-based Unified Communications services market. Companies have limited capital available for investment, but at the same time consider Unified Communications deployment as they look for ways to cut the costs and increase productivity. Small businesses as well as large enterprises are interested in communications delivered as a service.

"While PBX vendors see a significant revenue decline, economic recession generates strong interest in alternative delivery methods," notes Dorota Oviedo, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan Unified Communications & Collaboration group. "Down economy favouring OPEX-based solutions coupled with market's need for flexibility and focus on core competencies, all boost cloud-based Unified Communications services adoption."

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, as they represent yet another frontier for cyber-attacks. Complete visibility has never been more important-or more difficult. Powered by AI, Darktrace's Enterprise Immune System technology is the only solution to offer real-time visibility and insight into all parts of a network, regardless of its configuration. By learning a ‘pattern of life' for all networks, devices, and users, Darktrace can detect threats as they arise and autonomously respond in real time - all without impacting server performance.
