TECH SUPPLIER May 2021 - IDC Survey Spotlight - Doc # AP47430021
How Will an Increase in Digital Workspaces and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Spending Impact Security in India?
This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes the impact of spending on digital workspaces and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) amidst the pandemic and how security will play a game-changing role while evaluating solutions.
As India witnessed strict lockdown protocols to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, enterprises increased their spending on VDI to enable and facilitate a smooth flow of operations. However, IDC believes that hybrid work models will continue to gather steam after the pandemic because of the increased flexibility and ease of working from anywhere and using any device. About 58% of India enterprises intend to spend more on digital workspace solutions in 2021 than in 2020. This growth in demand will also entail a glaring need for security to be embedded in VDI and workspace solutions as enterprises consider remote access technologies to be the highest risk factor over the next five years.
