Market Dynamics

With technological advancements exponentially rising in the IT industry, new security challenges are required to be addressed.

The advent of digital technologies for collection, storage, analysis, and distribution of information has created a world of insecurity, providing numerous new opportunities in the Middle East & Africa cyber security market. According to recent white paper reports, data breaches significantly impact consumer confidence.
