Will the upswing curve for most security companies start to become a downward one from 2020? Our survey and security 50 companies’ financial reports both show the negative growth in the Q1 and Q2. Though many companies are expecting Q3 & Q4 to compensate their previous revenue loss, the outcome might be minimal, since many countries are still being seriously hit by COVID-19. Even so, most people still believe the recovery is ahead. Companies will continue to stay cautious to survive with the pandemic.
