Messaging security is a protective approach to provide security to organization’s messaging infrastructure. The organization mode of communications includes email messaging and instant messaging. Email is the most commonly used communication mode in the organizations. A small security gap in the communication infrastructure may lead to a huge loss to the organization. The communication system is majorly attacked by spams, malware, viruses, Business Email Compromise (BEC) attack, social engineering, zero-hour malware, intrusions, and other security threats. The messaging security solutions help organizations to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other compliances. In this report, MarketsandMarkets expects the messaging security market size to grow from USD 2.64 Billion in 2017 to USD 5.50 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.8%.
