Advanced Persistent Threat Market Research, 2030

The global advanced persistent threat market was valued at $5.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $30.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 20.5% from 2022 to 2030. Advanced persistent threats are malicious entities that use backdoors to obtain unauthorized access to networks or servers and remain undetected for an extended amount of time. Corporations and governments are seeking for advanced defenses to protect their databases due to the rapid increase in cybercrimes and the rise in ransomware cases.

Advanced persistent threats are hard to identify and eliminate as they are carefully planned into the computing systems of a business. Additionally, the designers of these threats constantly supervise and direct their operations and if necessary, update the code to evade detection and adopt a new set of behaviors. It prevents the company from efficiently monitoring the activity of outgoing communication. For detection, protection, and potential repair against persistent threats and malicious assaults, APT solutions are combined.

The advanced persistent threat market is segmented into Deployment Mode, Services, and Solutions.

It is crucial for vendors to offer solutions that logically identify and relate information about a potential attack across many sources and channels because of the most accessible systems via which attacks are feasible to include web access and email. Software, physical or virtual appliances, private or public clouds, and hybrid models are just a few of the different ways that these solutions can be used. In order to identify and defend against advanced persistent threats, network administrators, security companies, and individual users use a variety of security techniques, such as traffic monitoring, bot-bot protection, and access control.

APT-like cyberattacks are on the rise globally, which is primarily driving the significant expansion of the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) security market. For instance, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) jointly alerted the public to APT threats in October 2020. As per their information the Sandworm APT, a group renowned for TeleBots used in high-profile hacks, was accused of working with six Russian citizens, according to accusations announced by the Department of Justice (DOJ). Therefore, most businesses, including those in retail, healthcare, and IT, are using integrated security services that may help to harden cloud environments against such APT-style attacks, which may eventually increase the demand for APT protection platforms, during the forecast period.

During the forecast time, it is anticipated that the higher cost of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) protection platforms will hinder the expansion of the global market. Additionally, the global market for advanced persistent threat defense may suffer from a lack of awareness of APTs and their complexity.

Due to the rising use of cyber-security platforms in the healthcare industry, technical advancements in medicine and biological research have substantially increased in recent years. The platform is essential in identifying and correcting any risks or weaknesses related to Protected Health Information (PHI). Additionally, a number of benefits are provided by this highly developed platform, including the authentication of data storage, approval of security measures, secure data transmission, and risk assessment. As a result, some healthcare organizations have chosen to deploy integrated security solutions in recent years. For instance, in order to launch the "HITRUST Cyber Threat XChange (CTX) Deceptive program," which aids in the deployment of honeypots throughout the healthcare ecosystem, in October 2017, the leading player in information technology and services, HITRUST Alliance, entered into a partnership with Trend Micro Incorporated, an American-Japanese multinational cyber security software company. The worldwide APT protection market may benefit in the future from such technological advancements.

The key players profiled in this report include Cisco Systems, Inc., AO Kaspersky Lab., ESET spol. S r.o., Sophos Ltd., Forcepoint, VMware, Inc, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, McAfee, LLC, and F-Secure.

The global advanced persistent threat market share is segmented based on deployment mode, services, solutions, and region. By deployment mode, it is classified into cloud and on-premise.

By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Advanced Persistent Threat Market by Deployment Mode

By deployment type, the on-premise sub-segment dominated the market in 2019, whereas the cloud sub-segment is projected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. The rising demand for cloud-based APT protection is mostly due to its affordability, critical role in disaster recovery, rising concern about integrated safety standards among businesses, and accessibility of cloud security services for both small and large firms. Increasing dependability and simple data access are encouraging the use of cloud services in many businesses, which is driving the segment revenue growth globally. The market for ATP protection has changed over the past years, moving from typical, simple malware outbreaks to complex and zero-day threats.

Advanced Persistent Threat Market by Services

By services, the managed services sub-segment emerged as the global leader in 2019, and the professional services sub-segment is anticipated to be the fastest growing sub-segment during the forecast period. Businesses have been forced to pay attention to system vulnerability leading to a sudden surge in malicious activity across a variety of sectors, including IT & telecommunications, healthcare, and retail.

One of the key factors fueling the sub-segment growth during the projection period is significantly increasing cyber vulnerabilities in both developed and developing countries. In addition, the widespread use of 5G infrastructure and substantial increase in technological assistance are some of the elements anticipated to fuel the demand for integrated security, which may ultimately flourish the sub-segment market growth.

Advanced Persistent Threat Market by Solutions

By solutions, the security information & event management sub-segment dominated the global advanced persistent threat protection market share in 2019, whereas the next-generation firewall sub-segment is anticipated to have the fastest growth during the forecast period. During the forecast period, it is projected to have a significant increase in demand for continuous monitoring and incident response, log management and storage, and compliance. These are just a few of the major drivers projected to drive this growth. Smart devices, such as smartphones, TVs, tablets, and laptops, have substantially increased their connectivity in recent years. The widespread adoption of the IoT has raised awareness of and need for network infrastructure protection, which is expected to promote market expansion. Additionally, prominent firms providing cyber security services are forming partnerships and releasing cutting-edge products due to the high functionality of NGFW Solutions. As an example, Citrix and Check Point Software Technologies, one of the prominent providers in integrated security services, officially announced their collaboration to provide Next-Generation Firewall, in May 2020. In the coming years, the sub-segment is anticipated to benefit greatly from these important advances.

Advanced Persistent Threat Market by Region

By region, North America dominated the global market in 2019, and Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing sub-segment during the forecast period. The sustainable and well-established countries in North America, especially the U.S. and Canada, significantly spend on R&D operations. For instance, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced in May 2019, that it would invest $8 million in innovative security measures to increase the resilience and dependability of the nation's energy infrastructure. These investments might have a favorable effect on the market. Furthermore, the market for Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) protection in the North American area is anticipated to benefit from the prominence of APT protection platform providers such as Broadcom, Fortinet, McAfee, and others.

The ongoing technological advancements in nations such as India, China, Singapore, and Australia are responsible for the market expansion of the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) protection sector in the APAC regions. In the next years, demand for APT security platforms is also anticipated to rise due to the region-wide sharp increase in cyberattacks.
