Top Impacting Factors

Increase In Cybercrime Activities

Cybercrime is on the rise globally. Despite the increase in sophistication of attacks and the complexity of the IT network, businesses continue to depend on antiquated data protection measures. Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD), cellphones, social media, and cloud service usage, among other technical innovations and practices, have significantly complicated the overall data security process. Nowadays, organized cybercriminal operations are on the rise, with well-funded organizations that are competent, coordinated, and motivated, which push cybercrime. Businesses suffer enormous financial losses as a result of cybercrime, as well as a negative impact on their brand image.

Moreover, there is an increase in cyber-attacks on the healthcare facility systems and their medical devices along with personal data of the patient that are critical for hospitals and patient privacy. Healthcare networks often support a number of endpoints running antiquated applications and operating systems. These endpoints are difficult to repair, making it costly to maintain adequate security posture. Healthcare endpoint security has become increasingly important for data protection and protection of systems from unauthorized manipulation and preventing use of malicious software.

Cost Effectiveness Of Managed Security Services Providers

Data breaches and a number of sophisticated assaults have increased dramatically in the previous 8-10 years, to the point that enterprises in every industry must assure the security of their information and network infrastructure. With so many threat and vulnerability monitoring systems on the managed security services market, deciding whether to employ an in-house or cloud-based security solution is crucial in the security monitoring and management process. Due to budget restrictions, most businesses are attempting to build an in-house security infrastructure with just part-time employees. This may not be enough to ensure efficient and effective data security, as part-time employees may lack the necessary expertise.

As a result, companies are increasingly outsourcing data security activities to managed security services providers (MSSP). Along with being cost-effective, this security management option enables the firm to continue real-time network traffic monitoring by IT security specialists. MSSPs supply these services to several clients on a shared basis, lowering the cost per client. As a result, managed security services (MSS) are accessible to companies of all sizes, thus driving growth of the managed security services market analysis.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of managed security services market share. This is attributed to the fact that with the emergence of COVID-19, the use of managed security services is expected to enable enterprises to address security issues and facilitate secured information access while remote working. In addition, because of the increase in internet traffic, the danger of cyberattacks has grown significantly in numerous enterprises, necessitating the implementation of managed security services. Innovations and advancements in managed security services, such as firewall management, endpoint security, and increase in the number of cyberattacks since the outbreak of the pandemic, have fueled market development.

For instance, according to a report from Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 security consulting group, the average ransomware payment climbed 82% to a record $570,000 in the first half of 2021 from $312,000 in 2020. Thus, increase in ransomware of cyberattacks augments the demand for managed security services, thereby fueling the growth of the global managed security services market.

Analyst Review

The rise of powerful and sophisticated cybercriminal assaults has compelled businesses to take data security more seriously than ever before. These assaults have had a substantial financial impact on all firms, prompting them to explore for new ways to handle data protection. In this situation, managed security services gain traction since these models have shown to be a cost-effective and efficient way to monitor and maintain security infrastructure. The on-premises security deployment model is likely to lead the market among the many deployment models available in the industry, as it largely helps in securing sensitive data in the market. 

Key providers of the market. such as AT&T Intellectual Property, SecureWorks, Inc. and IBM Corporation account for a significant share in the market. With the larger requirement from managed security services, various companies are partnering to increase the managed security services capabilities. For instance, in November 2021, AT&T launched an integrated, managed cybersecurity solution to help the U.S. federal agencies modernize and protect their IT infrastructure in compliance with Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) 3.0 cybersecurity guidance. AT&T Government Trusted Internet brings together software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) technology, security capabilities, and fiber connectivity in a 24/7 managed solution through a single provider. The comprehensive, scalable solution integrates with the AT&T Managed

Trusted Internet Protocol Service, extending highly secure remote access to federal agency workers and branch offices.

In addition, with increase in demand for managed security services, various companies are expanding their current services to continue with the rise in demand. For instance, in July 2021, BT’s SAFE (‘Security Assessment Framework for Enterprises’) platform allows organizations to take a health check of their existing defenses and understand their likelihood of suffering a major cyber-attack. The investment is expected to allow BT to combine the SAFE platform with its world-leading managed security services to provide customers with a real time view of how safe they are against an incredibly fast-moving cyber threat landscape. SAFE is unique in calculating a financial cost to customers’ risks and giving actionable insight on the steps that can be taken to address them. The platform ultimately enables organizations to surgically target gaps in their defenses, and already protects multiple Fortune 500 companies and governments globally.

Moreover, market players are expanding their business operations and customers by increasing their acquisitions. For instance, in February 2021, Cisco announced the acquisition of IMImobile PLC, a leading global provider of cloud communications software and services that manages business-critical interactions at scale. IMImobile orchestrates, automates, monitors, and delivers customer interactions that drive the best experiences. By combining IMImobile's solution with Webex Contact Center, Cisco is expected to provide a robust Customer Experience as a Service (CXaaS) offer. This new offering is believed to bring together cloud contact center, artificial intelligence, experience management, collaboration, and communications platform as a service to create a single solution that will give organizations the ability to provide the exceptional experiences that customers expect.
