Preparations for data breaches, regulatory demands, and compliance are driving the global market for cybersecurity services and products, according to two new reports.
Stamford, Conn.-based Gartner Inc., an information technology research and advisory firm, predicts that organizations will spend $81.6 billion worldwide in 2016 on information security services and products.
According to a recent report from Dublin-based market research firm Research and Markets, the marketplace will expand more than 10 percent annually through 2021,
taking the total value of the market from $122 billion to $202 billion.
"The cybersecurity market is growing rapidly because of the increase in adoption of cybersecurity solutions, due to the increase in security breaches targeting enterprises," according to a news release from Research and Markets.
As of Aug. 9, 584 data breaches have exposed more than 20 million records nationwide, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center, a nonprofit that supports victims of identity theft.
Companies are being proactive, however. In its latest research, the
2016 Cyber Threat Defense Report, Sunnyvale, Calif.-based security firm Blue Coat said nearly three-quarters of IT security budgets are expected to rise in 2016. And IT security personnel tell Blue Coat that malware, phishing and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-encryption threats give them the most headaches.
"Organizations are increasingly focusing on detection and response, because taking a preventive approach has not been successful in blocking malicious attacks," said Elizabeth Kim, senior research analyst at Gartner. "We strongly advise businesses to balance their spending to include both," she said.
Kim added that security spending will become increasingly service-driven as organizations continue to face staffing and talent shortages.
