Top Impacting Factors
Rise in Malware and Phishing Threats Among Enterprises
Malware, such as viruses and Trojans, has substantially expanded its ability to enter, control, and harm whole electronic information networks. Malware is frequently used by cyber criminals to obtain control of devices or equipment in order to make money. This is done so that the machine may be immediately used to undertake fraudulent transactions or criminal operations.
Furthermore, because to the criticality of data created in these businesses, industries such as BFSI, healthcare, and government are particularly exposed to such assaults. As a result, an increase in the risk of malware and phishing attacks is a major element driving the cybersecurity market forward. Furthermore, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the incidence of malware attacks on major businesses' databases has increased, necessitating the need to tighten data base security, driving the worldwide cybersecurity industry.
By Industry Vertical
BFSI segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Furthermore, market vendors are coming up with innovative solutions to combat against such malware and phishing attacks, thereby driving growth of the global market. For instance, in March 2021, Tech Mahindra announced the launch of a new cloud security offering called ‘CLOUDEFENDER.’ It is a cloud-based attack mitigation service. The solution is powered by cybersecurity and application delivery solutions provider Radware and is an expansion of Tech Mahindra’s global partnership with the company to provide a full suite of cloud-based cyber security services.
Increase in Adoption of IoT and BYOD Trend
Devices and applications have become more vulnerable to advanced persistent threats (APTs) as a result of the growing IoT and BYOD trend among businesses. Furthermore, as the number of mobile devices within enterprises grows, IT staff will find it more challenging to control and trace data flow in diverse systems. As a result, businesses are using cybersecurity systems to secure sensitive data by monitoring, classifying, and resolving various types of threats, fueling market growth. For instance, according to a report in 2021, cyber criminals have manipulated the COVID-19 crisis to launch 667% more phishing attacks and are actively trying to take advantage of security vulnerabilities, which, in turn, augments the growth of the cybersecurity market. Moreover, over 15% of employees accessed sensitive data from non-work devices in 2020. In addition, many businesses are aware that BYOD’s benefits in the workplace far outweigh any potential risks. Potential security threats can be neutralized in most situations. There are many benefits of having a BYOD policy, increased productivity, employee satisfaction and reduced company costs; thus, increasing the adoption of cybersecurity.
Impact of Russia-Ukraine War on Cybersecurity
The Russia-Ukraine war has had a significant impact on cybersecurity, both regionally and globally. The conflict has witnessed a surge in cyber-attacks targeting critical infrastructure, government institutions, and private organizations. These attacks involve various techniques such as phishing, malware distribution, DDoS attacks, and intrusion attempts. In addition, the war has also seen an alarming rise in attacks targeting critical infrastructure, including energy grids, water supplies, and transportation systems. Such attacks disrupt essential services and have severe economic and humanitarian consequences. This has highlighted the vulnerability of critical infrastructure to cyber threats during times of geopolitical tension. Furthermore, the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on cybersecurity extends beyond the region. The techniques and tools used in this conflict can be adopted by other nations and non-state actors, potentially leading to an increase in cyber-attacks worldwide. This in turn is driving the demand for cyber security solutions for addressing cyber threats in cyberspace. Overall, the Russia-Ukraine war has had a profound impact on cybersecurity, with increased cyber-attacks targeting of critical infrastructure, the spread of disinformation, and international implications. It emphasizes the need for robust cybersecurity measures, cooperation, and collective efforts to combat evolving cyber threats. Moreover, the war has underscored the importance of robust cybersecurity measures and defense mechanisms. Governments, organizations, and individuals have become more aware of the need for comprehensive security strategies, including threat intelligence, incident response plans, and employee awareness training.
Asia-Pacific would exhibit the highest CAGR of 11.0% during 2021-2030.
