Follow us on LinkedIn – While the modern interconnected world brings in numerous advantages and empowers enterprises, it also brings in a fair share of challenges and perils. Today, a country’s economic prosperity and competitiveness depends on “Cyber Security” and the ability to effectively confront threats to the nation’s information grid. Growing adoption of the Internet by governments for defense and military management and public governance, makes public safety and national security vulnerable and dependent upon the robustness of a network. Several governments across the world have already been targets of cyber-warfare.

The unconventional challenges created by the increasing reliance of companies, governments, and people on digital infrastructure include threats posed by spyware, malware, spoofing, phishing, botnets, unauthorized data leakages and access to confidential information networks, and identity thefts among others. The growing emphasis on defending information and communications infrastructure represents one of the primary factors driving demand for cyber security solutions. Another key factor driving growth in the market includes the evolutionary leap in the threat landscape, which continues to evolve with malicious software codes and viruses, becoming more intelligent and sneakier, and capable of adapting against legacy defenses.

Growing adoption of cyber security solutions to avoid unnecessary costs associated with security breaches is driving growth in the market. Cost of data leaks and unauthorized use of confidential information is exorbitantly high, affecting the reputation, revenue, and even survival of companies.
