Security as a Service Market

McAfee (US) and Trend Micro (Japan) are leading Players in the Security as a Service Market

Security as a service solutions help customers protect their critical assets, such as network, endpoint, cloud, database, application, and web, with greater visibility and control. Security as a service is a cloud-based model, wherein a third party vendor manages and maintains the enterprise data and applications over the internet. It is a security management approach that enables the provisioning of managed security services from the cloud. The security services are integrated with enterprise infrastructure, safeguarding their essential assets from external and internal threats. Security as a service is an outsourcing service that benefits an organization in several ways, such as reduced costs, ease of IT security, scalable security services, and continuous support. It enables organizations to access and implement robust security practices. The global security as a service market size is expected to grow from USD 11.1 billion in 2020 to USD 26.5 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 18.9% during the forecast period.

The key growth driver of the security as a service market are mandates to follow regulatory and data protection laws, increase in demand for cloud-based security solutions, and high cost and risks in managing on-premises security solutions. Additionally, increase in adoption of cloud-based services among Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and rapid growth in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Carry Your Own Device (CYOD) trends are expected to provide a tremendous growth opportunity for the security as a service market over the next five years. The biggest challenge for security as a service market is the rise in IT infrastructure complexities and the availability of free security services and security solution suites. Cyber threats are proliferating with adversaries becoming more professional and adept at breaking the barriers established via traditional security measures. Hence, organizations must take preventive measures to deploy security as a service to combat sophisticated cyber threats that may arise in the future. Moreover, security as a service providers are developing advanced solutions to identify and mitigate cyber threats in real-time, thus minimizing the overhead in managing enterprise assets and risks of advanced threats.
