The global industrial control systems security market is expected to witness high growth in the wake of growing threats and attacks on critical infrastructure globally. Increased demand for process automation and remote control has made existing infrastructure vulnerable to hackers and cyber criminals, thereby compromising the integrity of critical information. Need for safeguarding the processes and critical infrastructure has led to the adoption of robust ICS (industrial control systems) security solutions.
ICS security market system helps in power, energy, utility, and transportation resources in taking protective measures against threats such as Duqu, Flame, Night Dragon, and Stuxnet attacks. Several intelligent security solutions enable the providers to integrate, collect, and analyze the network through the data generated by their Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks and grids.
The industrial control systems security market can be bifurcated into network security technologies and professional services on the basis of technology. Network security solutions and services include antivirus/malware, application whitelisting, Data Loss Prevention (DLP), database activity monitoring, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), firewall, Intrusion Detection Systems/Intrusion Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Unified Threat Management (UTM), update and patch management and virtualization security. Professional services comprise audit & report, managed services, risk management services, system design, integration, & consulting. Verticals served by the ICS security market include chemical & manufacturing, energy & utilities, power, and transportation systems.
The industrial control systems security market has been characterized by significant mergers & acquisitions in order to gain market stranglehold. Some of the prominent M&A activities include Trusteer’s acquisition by IBM, Sourcefire’s acquisition by IBM, Industrial Defender’s acquisition by Lockheed Martin, Invensys’ acquisition by Schneider, and McAfee’s acquisition by Intel. Companies such as Industrial defender have offered unique solutions for monitoring, managing and protecting vulnerable automation systems against external threats.
