Market Overview

The global cloud network security market is expected to register a CAGR of 14.40%, during the forecast period (2021 - 2026). New threats, like Petya, Wannacry, Skype, Fireball, Delta Charlie, and others, are threatening to destroy data if a ransom, to recover the data, is not paid. Several individuals and organizations were caught in this trap. Protection against cyberattacks is becoming more important for industrial establishments. Therefore, industries are now considering the implementation of cloud network security right at the development stage for new machines and throughout their entire life cycle.

  • The market comprises of major players, such as IBM, Cisco, and Intel, who are the leaders in technology, as well as the networking market (Cisco). Being early adopters and major investors in the cloud-based networking technologies, these players are pioneers in the market. To hold on to their competitive edge and positions, in the market, these companies have continued to invest in this field.
  • For instance, the introduction of IBM Blockchain, first of its kind enterprise-ready blockchain service based on the Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Fabric version 1.0, enables developers to quickly build and host robustly secure production blockchain networks on the IBM cloud.
  • The market is expected to continue growing at a significantly high rate, owing to the greater penetration of cloud solutions across various industry verticals, coupled with the advent of IoT and Industry 4.0, and consequently the growing number of DDoS and data breaches. All these factors are expected to drive the market for cloud network security.

Scope of the Report

Network security is defined as the protection against misuse or the hacking of a system’s files or directories. The most common threats to the network include viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware and adware, zero-day attacks, hacker attacks, DDoS attacks, and identity theft.

The application of cloud network security varies from small-, medium- to large-scale organizations. It also provides various solutions, such as firewall, secure sockets layer virtual private networking (SSL VPN), and intrusion detection system (IDS) and intrusion prevention system (IPS). It is used by various end-users, such as government, BFSI, healthcare, manufacturing, education, service providers.

Key Market Trends

Application-based Classification and Products to have Significant Demand for Cloud Network Security

  • Application-based segmentation and product availability have driven positive demand for cloud network security-based products in the market. Organizations opt for data encryption or other available means to safeguard information.
  • Commercial usage varies from the military grade product and services used in defense, industry grade product and services for financial businesses, to public usage products and services. Some network applications require uninterrupted connectivity vital for the operation of the business, while others require the network to be operated continuously with a tolerance to disruption allowed.
  • These factors decide the application-based implementation and usage of the product, and drive the market in their respective segments. A failure of communication can be catastrophic and huge in terms of finances in the aviation and defense sectors, driving the demand for top-end products.
  • The number of apps used in the various sector is increasing, while financial services segment hold the major share, as it serves the customer in various ways, like targeted customer promotions and product offers, bank appointment reminders, real-time alerts, bill reminders, and customer surveys.
Cloud Network Security Market Analysis

United States Accounts for the Largest Share in the Cloud Network Security Market

  • The United States is the largest consumer of cloud network security in the world. This could be attributed to the presence of large enterprises, growing frequency of cyber-attacks, and the increasing number of hosted servers in the country.
  • Many cloud security-providing companies are headquartered in the United States, and the country is home to approximately 63% of the world’s privately-owned cybersecurity companies. Most of the companies pilot their new services in the country before launching and them globally.
  • The rapid adoption of new technology in the country and growing focus on security are pushing the market forward. Presence of large cloud service providers in the country, such as Microsoft and Amazon, is playing a significant role in the growth of the cloud security market.
  • US federal, state, and local government agencies rank last in cybersecurity compared to 17 major private industries, including transportation, retail, and healthcare. Presently, however, the government in this region has tightened the security norms to provide better cloud security.
  • With higher penetration levels of medium- and large-scale companies, compared to the rest of the market, this segment of the market is expected to be the main buyer of network security solutions. Also, as smaller enterprises access their cyber exposures, growth in adoption of cloud-based solutions is expected. As a result, the investments in this sector are also expected to increase exponentially over the forecast period.
  • Moreover, there is huge growth potential in other industry segments, in the country, such as manufacturing, energy, and utilities, as they have already migrated to digital-transformed methods of operations and are now beginning to get a better understanding of their cyber exposure.
