To better navigate emerging risks and the current threat landscape, security leaders are expanding cybersecurity budgets. According to a report by Juniper, security leaders anticipate a 98% increase in levels of unified threat management investment by enterprises. 

New technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have presented new risks to organizations. These risks have led security leaders to reconsider methods to protect organizations and employees. 

Threat management was scored in the report on breadth of protection capabilities, as well as use of AI for managing evolving threats and coordinating responses. Secure access service edge (SASE) solutions were also analyzed by the report.
