Cyber AI has become sought-after to offer a proactive mechanism of protection with accuracy in detection. For instance, AI has witnessed strong demand to do a relentless verification of a user in terms of behavioral biometrics. Industry participants are expected to prioritize machine learning algorithms to leverage the power of AI to bolster security intelligence.

The rise in privacy concerns, the importance of AI-based cybersecurity solutions in the banking industry, and the frequency and complexity of cyber threats are factors augmenting the market growth. Moreover, it is anticipated that over the next few years, this market will expand in response to SMEs' increasing demand for AI-based cybersecurity solutions.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has advanced the need for state-of-the-art technologies as companies extend their commitment to work-from-home policies. An uptick in demand for digital products and services due to telecommuting employees and other individuals using potentially insecure networks and devices has compelled enterprises to inject funds into machine learning and deep learning algorithms.

Moreover, pervasive scams relating to the novel coronavirus, along with the impersonation of government organizations such as WHO, further challenge organizations. For instance, in April 2020, Google observed more than 18 million daily malware and phishing emails about COVID-19 scams. The American technology company claimed that its AI-powered protections block over 99.9 percent of spam, phishing, and malware from reaching users.

Type Insights

The network security segment is anticipated to account for a substantial revenue share of 37.4% in 2021. The high share of the segment is attributable to the rising prominence of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence. Businesses are leveraging cybersecurity to protect and prevent cyber-attacks.

Hardware could be a major growth enabler to boost business efficiency and scalability of operations. Prominently, the zero-trust model - needing all users to be authorized and authenticated - has gained ground. For instance, in June 2022, Cisco revealed its plans to foster a secure hardware strategy through Cisco Security Hardware. The company has prioritized zero trust and is rolling out less intrusive methods for risk-based authentication.

The AI-based endpoint security will receive drive across organizations for continuous monitoring, risk-based application control, and automated classification. Prominently, endpoint security solutions automatically create an allow list based on known goodware and a deny list based on known malware.

With endpoint attacks becoming prevalent, AI-based real-time authentication and behavioral analytics could be pursued to underpin security solutions. Moreover, the soaring penetration of connected devices has prompted companies to apply AI-powered endpoint security technologies to detect suspicious activities and at-risk information.

Offering Insights

The services segment is anticipated to hold a prominent revenue share of 35.2% in 2021. The segment is expected to contribute notably to the global AI in cybersecurity market growth. Robust demand for application program interfaces, such as machine learning algorithms, sensor data, speech, and vision will fuel the market growth. The software has the distinctive ability to detect abnormal activities with a high degree of accuracy.

With the trend for hardware operations, the software platform will gain ground to augment the security portfolio. Industry participants are likely to emphasize state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions and could inject funds into the software platform. For instance, in November 2020, IBM joined hands with AMD to bolster AI and cybersecurity offerings. They will likely build upon open-source software, open system architecture, and open standards to propel confidential computing.

The hardware-based AI in cybersecurity will gain ground with the rising prominence of networking solutions, processors, and memory solutions globally. AI hardware is expected to be sought to expedite and boost AI-related operations. The hardware applications will receive impetus from the growing footfall of neural networks and processors.

With the evolution of cyberattacks globally, neural networks have become instrumental for fraud detection. Furthermore, the deep learning technique has garnered popularity in predicting credit card fraud detection, auguring well for the market growth.   

Technology Insights

The machine learning segment led with a revenue share of 46.8% in 2021. The machine learning technology will witness profound growth against the backdrop of soaring use of deep learning across end-use industries. Leading companies, such as Google and IBM, have been using machine learning to filter emails and threat detection. Organizations are cashing in on the power of machine learning and deep learning to boost cybersecurity practices.

For instance, deep learning has set the trend for image recognition across applications, including medical diagnoses and autonomous vehicles. Additionally, ML platforms have gained popularity to automate the monitoring process, spot deviation from the norm, and sift through the massive volume of data produced by security tools.

The natural language processing segment could foster the growth of the global AI in cybersecurity market during the forecast period. The trend is mainly due to the surging prominence of sentiment analysis, natural language inference, text summarization, and question-answering systems.

Besides, NLP has become sought-after to identify overlaps in data, frameworks, and standards and detect vulnerabilities in the security infrastructure. NLP could make significant strides and expand AI applications in cybersecurity over the next few years through automation and customization.

Application Insights

The fraud detection/anti-fraud segment accounted for 21% of the global revenue share in 2021. AI in cybersecurity will receive impetus for fraud detection and anti-fraud as upfront preventing controls. Machine learning has emerged as a viable tool for bolstering the ability of governments and other end-users to deter fraudulent activities amidst a surge in fraud cases.

To illustrate, in February 2022, the Federal Trade Commission data suggested that it received 2.8 million fraud reports from consumers in the preceding year. Accordingly, AI tools could gain ground to prevent fraud, email phishing, and fake records. Enterprises have exhibited increased traction for unified threat management (UTM) to protect their digital assets against threats, such as spyware-infected files, phishing attacks, unapproved website access, and trojans.

UTM approach is expected to gain ground to provide multiple security functions, including business VPN, intrusion detection and prevention, network firewalls, gateway anti-virus, and web content filtering. Organizations are likely to prioritize UTM software tools to detect advanced threats quickly with increased accuracy. UTM tools are expected to gain traction for scalable hardware-based monitoring and prevent the attack before it enters the network.

Vertical Insights

The enterprise segment held the leading revenue share of 23.5% in 2021. However, the BFSI sector could emerge as a major market for cyber AI to prevent data leaks, resist cyberattacks, and bolster security. The wave of innovations and technological advances has brought a paradigm shift in making payments, purchases, applying for loans, and withdrawals to crowdfunding. Furthermore, banks and financial institutions are likely to count on the zero-trust model on the Hardware to boost threat intelligence-based actions.

Industry participants expect the adoption of AI in the fintech sector to boost the market share of artificial intelligence in cybersecurity. The robust forecast is mainly due to the penetration of AI-based solutions to prevent and identify financial crimes and fraud. Furthermore, rampant distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks across banks and fintech sectors have furthered the demand for AI. Besides, neural networks will also receive impetus to anticipate hackers’ behavior, enabling banks to respond to attacks in real time.

The government and defense sector has exhibited an increased inclination toward AI following a surge in cyber incidents. The Center for Strategic and International Studies asserted that March 2022 witnessed a slew of Israeli government websites being taken offline against the backdrop of a DDoS attack targeting a major Israeli telecommunication provider. Meanwhile, in January 2022, a cyberattack reportedly targeted 90 websites of the Ukrainian government and deployed malicious software, taking a toll on dozens of government agencies’ computers. Accordingly, governments are poised to bank on Cloud Security and zero-trust architecture to keep cyber incidents at bay.
