COVID-19 Impact

Rapid Adoption of Security Solutions Across Healthcare and Government Sector to Boost Demand

The COVID-19 epidemic severely affected the overall behavior of consumers and providers. The short-term closure of manufacturing units, job crunches, lack of resources, data breaches, and weakened supply chain has negatively affected business growth worldwide. Numerous small and medium businesses across the globe encountered permanent and temporary shutdowns. As per a survey conducted by the NBER in 2020, 43% of respondents in the U.S. reported the temporary shutdown of small and medium businesses. The pandemic impacted small businesses and start-ups worldwide. This has significantly impacted the demand for internet security solutions and services.

However, the demand for cyber security solutions in healthcare, manufacturing, and government has grown exponentially during the pandemic crisis. Key players in the market focus on launching various security solutions to secure industrial operations against severe cyber-attacks. For instance, in December 2020, IBM Corporation launched IBM Security X-Force, a threat intelligence task force to detect cyber-attacks. The company also launched the Global Phishing Campaign across six countries.
