The global cyber warfare market exhibits a constructive presence in the defense and security sector, lacking a secure sense of direction. Expenditure in the cyber warfare sector is already significant, as a range of global military and government organizations, pace towards securing their networks and is expected to increase further over the forecast period. Cyber warfare has made its way past the conventional defense approach, moving towards a new-fangled zone of operations to co-exist alongside air, land and sea. Cyberspace transformation has led to the evolution of the defense sector as a whole new arcade to bolster the defense sales. This complex and vibrant sector is expected be vital for companies seeking to grow in the defense sector as many nations seek to reduce overall defense expenditures.
Augmented outlay on innovative technology and ever-growing threat of cyber-attack are foreseen to be the major drivers for the cyber warfare market growth. Cyber-attacks in the U.S., South Korea, Georgia, and Estonia have added credibility to the mounting expenditure on global cyber security systems, thereby driving market growth. The speed of these developments is not expected to lessen unduly and the efforts to counter these widespread susceptibilities are expected to upswing to an impressive notch.
The sophistication of cyber attacks and their consequences have accomplished a new level and researchers have anticipated that an unprotected computer with malware content can be scythed and employed for a Botnet within a short span of linking it to the Internet. Cyber warfare attacks are expected to increase over the forecast period thereby causing considerable damages to both, countries and corporations by pilfering large amounts of classified data and having an unconstructive brunt on economy.
Network-based IP sensor, machine learning technology, and deployment of FlowID10G are expected to revolutionize the field of cyber warfare by providing enhanced network intrusion detection and control. Increasing alertness among the countries about the significance of cyber security policy and perceiving attack patterns in cyber-crimes are few market trends expected to be portrayed by the host concerns. Lack of exhaustive databases on malware and their sources along with developing counter measures against cyber weapons are some challenges expected to be witnessed by the cyber warfare market over the forecast period.
Emerging need for new databases to meritoriously combat cyber- crime is a dynamic opportunity availed to this market. Limited budget, weak infrastructure and lack of transparency in information sharing are few challenges expected to be encountered by the market over a period of seven years.
The cyber warfare market can be bifurcated on the basis of organizational sovereignty into military cyber warfare and government cyber warfare.
Spending on cyber warfare is foreseen to be curbed as a result of the massive slash in expenditure being initiated in the defense sectors of a number of major markets. Cyber warfare demand is expected to remain reasonably elevated, chiefly whilst the intimidation to national security deceit by a thriving cyber attack remains a vital point of significance for both the private and public sector. Surging amount of networked systems requiring increasing levels of protection from the abiding, importunate intimidation are expected to derive the cyber warfare market growth. Cyber warfare market in the U.S. is anticipated to witness substantial growth despite defense budget cuts in light of recent cyber-attacks on major organizations such as Apple Inc., and Sony Pictures Entertainment. United Arab Emirates is expected to procure security systems from CASSIDIAN SAS (the former EADS Defense & Security Systems SAS) to secure its cyber space. The Brazilian Army is foreseen collaborate with Panda Security, a Spanish computer security company, to fight cyber terrorism. China has established a specialized cyber warfare team called the “Blue Army”, to fight cyber terrorism and India has formed an inter-departmental Information Security Task Force to counter cyber terrorism.
Leading companies in cyber warfare market are BAE Systems PLC, EADS Group / Airbus Defense & Space, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., General Dynamics Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), and Raytheon Company.
The acquisition of Arkoon Network Security by Cassidian SAS, a subsidy of EADS Group represents a further step in strategic development of Cassidian cyber- security to become a major European player in high-end cyber-security products following its acquisition of Netasq.
