Growing Investment & Security Related Managed Services amid COVID-19 Pandemic Reinforced Market Growth

COVID-19 has obligated individuals and businesses to embrace remote working. With employees working from home, Virtual Private Network (VPN) servers have become necessary for organizations. Owing to this, cybercriminals across the globe undoubtedly are capitalizing on this crisis. There has been a rise in malspams, ransomware attacks, and phishing attacks, as hackers are using this crisis as bait to imitate brands, thereby misleading employees. For instance,

According to the Nuspire threat report, there were 26,156,165 exploitation events, 1,597,858 Malware events, and 1,620,910 Botnets events for 2020.

According to Hackmageddon, the total number of major global attacks reported in the news was higher in almost every month of 2020.

Owing to this scenario, companies considered opting for cyber security managed services, which positively influence the market growth. Additionally, rapidly evolving technological advancements have lured new variants of attacks. Traditional cyber security services are not able to affect these attacks. MSSPs are enhancing their security services to minimize these attacks and improve the organization's security resilience.

Existing providers are enhancing their service portfolios to address consumers' evolving needs. The market is also estimated to have new entrants in the managed security services sector. According to IDC, multiple security service providers, including operators have planned or are planning to enter the managed security services market to seize this opportunity.

Furthermore, there has been a rise in investments in the managed security service offerings sector. This rise in investments was driven by the inclination of companies toward becoming cyber resilient in the upcoming years. Implementing a zero-trust strategy among businesses has proven to propel market growth.

Implementation of Zero Strategy Trend Prevailing in Global Market

The past few years have seen significant changes in cyber security practices due to the pandemic disruptions. Zero Trust is accelerating as an effective and leading cybersecurity strategy for businesses worldwide. This security model assumes breach and verifies the security status of endpoint, network, identity, and other resources based on all available data and signals. It depends on contextual real-time policy enforcement to attain the least privileged access and reduce cyber threats. Evolving technologies enable rapid prevention, remediation, and detection of attacks using large datasets and behavior analytics.

Companies have been embracing the Zero Trust model as it helps them manage most attacks and changes to the environment, especially with respect to IoT security. The below stats showcase the benefits of the Zero Trust strategy model.

Thus, continuous investments and implementing a Zero Trust strategy among providers are estimated to drive the global managed security services market in the coming years.


Increasing BYOD Method and Cyber Security Risk to Drive Market Growth

With the advent of digitalization and rapid technological change, businesses around the world are implementing new trends, such as BYOD and CYOD, for their employees on laptops, tablets, smartphones, and more. These employees use smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other personal devices privately on networks to establish connections that can be easily compromised.

These personal devices are used for corporate information, increasing the potential for cyberattacks and creating a threat to an organization's security posture.

These devices are often used for personal business purposes and can be vulnerable to external malware and other cyber security attacks. The increased malware risk posed by BYOD users is a huge concern for cyber security experts. There is an increasing need for qualified professionals to monitor these devices 24/7 to combat security breaches.

Organizations employ managed cyber security services to mitigate the threat landscape to protect an organization from potential harm. Hence, the rise of BYOD and WFH is driving the market.


Lower Budget and Expert Limitations for SMEs to Restrain Market Growth

The need for advanced services and increasing online security threats are growing significantly. Traditional network security services cannot protect organizations from the cloud, extended network, and endpoint security threats.

Aspects, such as the absence of experts and specialists in the further development and advancement of security services, are considered significant inhibitors. Additionally, the huge cost of updating and implementing internet security services and solutions hinders small & medium enterprises' adoption of managed security services.
