Increasing Adoption of Cloud-based Managed Security Services (MSS) will Contribute to Market Growth
The increasing adoption of cloud-based services is a major global trend. The rising demand for securing IT infrastructure against cyber threats has pushed organizations to adopt Managed Security Services (MSSs) in their business models. Cyber threats are evolving in both enterprises and government sectors, thus forcing MSPs to develop advanced offerings that can detect and address cyber risks. Various companies are focused on adopting cloud-based managed security services to boost their security against various email viruses, Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks, firewalls, and intrusion detection. Key players are offering advanced cloud-based security services to cater to rising security needs. For instance,
The adoption of managed security services enables various organizations to handle an incident, monitor & manage ongoing cybersecurity risks, and detect threats. Therefore, demand for cloud-based services will grow in the forthcoming years.
Growing Adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) among Organizations to Aid Market Growth
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) stands as one of the primary components of digital technology and productivity across various sectors in the current technology-driven business environment. The BYOD strategy allows workforces to access and manage their company’s data through personal devices to improve productivity. According to a 2019 report The Future of BYOD, companies favoring the use of BYOD can save up to USD 350 per year, per team member. The usage of BYOD enhances work flexibility and accountability of employees, resulting in higher productivity. This, in turn, has urged organizations to deploy options for BYOD solutions with the existing systems to create an employee-friendly environment.
The increased use of BYOD has raised the number of intelligent devices in a workplace, such as tablets, smartphones, laptops, and other gadgets. This method would raise the risk of data integrity and security as it moves across smart devices. As a result, many companies are turning to these services to monitor the security of these smart devices, thereby promoting managed services market growth in the forthcoming years.
Lack of IT Security Professionals May Inhibit Market Growth

Lack of valued IT security skills can leave organizations open to cyberattacks, resulting in data loss and reputation damage. With the growth of several cybersecurity threats, the requirement for advanced security solutions to deal with cyberattacks is growing exponentially. This highlights the need for cybersecurity training to help close the skills gap, introduce new talent to the work field, and make the organization more secure.
Moreover, many limitations, such as demand for experienced professionals, ineffectiveness of the managed service model, data privacy & security issues, and requirement for large investments are projected to limit the market growth.
