Italy Cybersecurity Market Analysis

The Italy Cybersecurity Market size is estimated at USD 3.63 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 5.84 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 9.96% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The Italian government aims to bring a fast broadband connection to market failure areas where commercially-driven investment in internet infrastructure has not developed as expected, which is anticipated to propel the growth of internet users, subsequently boosting the target group for cybercriminals who hope to attack users in the region.

  • Remote working led to many attacks on PCs, as cyber criminals shifted their focus to the weakest point in the chain: the endpoint and the employee's PC. The risks associated with cyberattacks pushed larger companies to raise protection levels with tools such as firewalls or virtual private networks (VPN), providing employees with remote access to corporate VPNs and simultaneously augmenting perimeter protection in the country.
  • TIM11 and Vodafone, one of the two largest mobile carriers, have already launched their 5G commercial services in some selected cities in Italy, with the remaining three, Wind-Tre, Iliad, and Fastweb, also preparing to do so. Fastweb recently struck a deal with Wind Tre to share 5G frequencies and build a joint proprietary 5G network to reach 90% of the nation by 2026.
  • The public digital identity system (Sistema Pubblico di Identità Digitale - SPID) allows citizens to access the public administration's online services with a single digital identity. The Agency for Digital Italy is committed to creating a public administration cloud following the continuing rationalization of national public data centers. Many eGovernment platforms and services have already been implemented.
  • According to National Cybersecurity Agency (NCA), Italy will be devoting 1.2% of gross national investment a year to cybersecurity. Italy presented its National Cybersecurity Strategy for 2022/26 and stated to reinforce the government's commitment to addressing cyber threats and increasing the resilience of the country to cyber attacks.
  • Further, the implementation of EU legislation and actions stemming from the National Framework and the National Cybersecurity Plan is expected to facilitate the market's growth in the region. As part of its Digital Agenda, the Italian government plans to make considerable investments in digital identity protection to increase digital transactions' security levels and ground consumers' trust by protecting citizens' identities. The Cyber Security Unit is an interagency and inter-governmental operational body designed to operate for cybersecurity within Italy's national cyber architecture. It is responsible for preventing and preparing for a national cyber crisis, declaring such a crisis, and coordinating competent responses following the prime minister's decisions.
  • According to some studies, in Italy, the total cost for businesses and citizens for cyber-attacks in 2021 will be equal to approximately USD 6,000 billion. Moreover, as specified by the Minister for technological innovation, V. Colao, almost 95% of public administration servers are subject to the risk of cyber-attacks. Furthermore, organizations often consider cybersecurity a cost they can do without rather than an investment. On the contrary, improvements to the IT systems security would imply a lower price compared to the value of the risk of a cyber-attack, with loss of data or the disruption of normal operations.

Italy Cybersecurity Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Italy Cybersecurity Market according to our research experts:

On-Premise deployment segment is expected to register a significant growth in the market

  • An on-premise security solution provides businesses with enhanced control over data. These solutions also offer significantly better threat protection as compared to cloud deployments. The availability of necessary expertise among staff and sufficient provision of resources are necessities for deploying on-premise solutions. On-premise web and email security solutions are expected to continue to play a significant role in an enterprise's security infrastructure, owing to the benefits of managing and protecting on-premise assets and on-premise security.
  • These types of deployments, being structured in annual or multi-layer plans, eliminate the need for monthly expenses. Furthermore, they can be highly customized to an individual organization's processes and regulatory requirements. Cloud solutions, which are being increasingly adopted, still face the challenge of security concerns, and hence, on-premise solutions will play a significant role in the market.
  • However, with increasing technological innovations, the cloud platform would become more secure, allowing enterprises to respond faster to security threats, focusing on mitigating business risks and saving the on-premise infrastructure investment.
  • On-premise deployment of cybersecurity services can only be undertaken by firms that have huge funds, as this is an expensive approach. The expenses are primarily due to the need for infrastructure and human resources that will have to be developed exclusively for the firm's needs. The banking and Financial Services sector has been the prime adopters of on-premise solutions primarily to safeguard consumer data.
  • The cloud-based solutions are becoming one of the most viable options for various applications since they, to an extent, satisfy the needs of cloud users at a relatively low cost. Although the deployment of cloud-based solutions has increased rapidly over the past few years, the area still lacks behind on-premise systems in some aspects to fully protect the data and applications for users.

BFSI Segment to hold significant share in the market

  • The BFSI industry is one of the critical infrastructure segments that face multiple data breaches and cyber-attacks, owing to the massive customer base that the sector serves and the financial information that is at stake. Being a highly lucrative operation model that has phenomenal returns along with the added upside of relatively low risk and detectability, cybercriminals are optimizing a plethora of diabolical cyberattacks to immobilize the financial sector. These attacks' threat landscape ranges from Trojans, malware, ATM malware, ransomware, mobile banking malware, data-breaches, institutional invasion, data thefts, fiscal breaches, etc.
  • Various public and private banking institutes are focusing on implementing the latest technology to prevent cyber attacks with a strategy to secure their IT processes and systems, secure customer critical data, and comply with government regulations. Besides, with greater customer expectations, rising technological capabilities, and regulatory requirements, banking institutions are pushed to adopt a proactive security approach.
  • With the growing technological penetration, coupled with the digital channels, such as internet banking, mobile banking, etc., online banking has become the preferred choice of customers for banking services. There is a significant need for banks to leverage advanced authentication and access control processes.
  • In 2022, financial firms worldwide were impacted by innovative new ransomware tactics that maximized ROI for the threat actors. While financial firms represent a small percentage of victims directly targeted by ransomware attacks, they can and have been impacted by attacks on third parties, who are prime targets. Such threats are poised to increase the usage of cybersecurity solutions in the BFSI sector in the country.
