Cyber security allows organizations to protect their data from cyber-attacks by providing solutions such as incident management, Unified Threat Management (UTM), risk and compliance management, and Identity and Access Management (IAM). Increasing demand for cyber security solutions due to increasing incidences of cyber-attacks is major factor driving growth of the cyber security market. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights analysis, in July 2017, number of cybercrime raised to 84.1% from 68.8%. Cyber Espionage slides to 10.1% from 15.6% of June whereas Cyber Warfare plummets to 4.3% from 9.4%.
The data stored on cloud or on-premises is vulnerable to cyber-attacks by various software such as Trojan horses and viruses, which consequently increases the requirement of cyber security solutions. Furthermore, increasing adoption of cyber security by industries such as banking, finance and insurance, government and military, and retail and manufacturing is another factor driving growth of the market. Banking and financial sector is the major end user of cyber security, as it uses cyber security to protect private data or cash related to customers, which is highly susceptible to cyber-threats.
