    COVID-19 has caught governments in many countries—let alone enterprises, SMBs, and startups—unguarded. Business continuity planning, which is usually in place within enterprises, educational and financial institutions, and public sector organizations, is proving inadequate in the face of COVID-19. As the virus continues its unabated spread, organizations have closed their offices, schools have shut down, and event organizers have postponed key events and gatherings. It is in these unprecedented times that videoconferencing is emerging as a must-have technology, facilitating rich face-to-face interaction from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. The universal access that these services provide from any computer or smartphone is proving to be a game changer and is already driving significant growth in videoconferencing usage.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a global issue that is already having a widespread impact on nearly everyone on the planet. The situation is very fluid; anyone who thinks they know exactly what is going to happen is kidding themselves. However, as we have been tracking several fundamental security markets going back to 1997, I was able to go back to two disruptive events during that time—the dot-com bubble burst of 2001 and the global financial crisis of 2008—to provide some guidance on how the cybersecurity technology market will respond to the current crisis. I reviewed the pre-crash forecasts and the actual results for key security technologies like firewalls, IDS/IPS, and web and mail security to help guide my initial adjustments to my current forecasts.

    This week, Arista announced that it has acquired software-defined networking (SDN) provider Big Switch Networks. This news was first reported by SDxCentral on January 22 but was not confirmed until Thursday, 13 February 2020, when Arista made the announcements as part of its earnings release. Arista described the acquisition as immaterial to its financials; it is rumored to be around $70M, compared to the $120M that had been raised by Big Switch. About half of the Big Switch team (75 people) will be joining Arista, including cofounder Kyle Forster and CEO Dough Murray for 6–12 months to aid in the transition.
