Report Overview

The global security analytics market size was valued at USD 7.01 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.6% from 2020 to 2027. Growing superiority in threat attacks employed by mature threat actors that remain undetected using predefined security tools or signature matching technologies is encouraging enterprises to adopt security analytics solutions. Furthermore, increasing cyber threats from advanced targeted attacks (ATA) or advanced persistent threats (APT) are driving the market. The APTs or ATAs often stay undetected and remain within the enterprise networks for a longer period of time, which, in turn, causes severe damages to the network infrastructure. Hence, the adoption of security analytics increases to detect and remediate such threats.

U.S. security analytics market size

The standard solutions can detect only the known patterns or the data that we wanted to protect. For instance, data loss prevention (DLP) solutions can be deployed to protect file signatures and card information. However, for the unknown data leakages beyond known data or encrypted communications, the standard solutions fail to detect. According to the 2017 M-Trends Report published by FireEye, Inc., it takes a median time of 99 days to detect an ATP or ATA. Hence, the criticality of damage increases by the time it remains undetected. As a result, enterprises are adopting security analytics solutions to detect the beaconing activity of the unknown threats beyond the capabilities of DLP solutions.

Disruption in digitization and rise in social, mobile, and interconnected systems attract additional risk factors to organizations and their supply chain partners. In the midst of rising threat risks, stringency in security-related regulations increases. With the growing complexities in managing compliances and network infrastructures from threats, security, and risk professionals are integrating security analytics solutions to enterprise governance, risk, and compliance processes. The integration helps the security teams to develop a common interface and framework around business risks. For instance, Gurucul, a U.S.-based cybersecurity enterprise, offers behavior-based security analytics solutions that include reporting, monitoring, and case management capabilities. These capabilities help enterprises in managing compliance mandates, such as HIPPA, PCI DSS, and GDPR.

Security analytics solutions combine the capabilities of aggregating, analyzing, and monitoring security-related data across an enterprise network. The inclusion of such capabilities also helps security and risk professionals to detect, investigate, and monitor threats in real-time. For instance, RSA Security LLC. offers a security analytics platform that provides comprehensive security monitoring, malware analytics, compliance reporting, and incident investigation. Furthermore, advancement in technologies such as machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) in security analytics tools allows enterprise security teams to remain proactive and identify abnormal behavior of end users and vulnerabilities in IT systems.

Exponential cases of COVID-19 have influenced industries to promote remote working environment and follow work from home policies. Following such standard protective measures has resulted in growth in the usage of third-party networks, digital platforms, and personal computing devices. Using such network connectivity solutions increases risks from cyberattacks and advanced malware. Furthermore, surge in high digital traffic exposed an opportunity to numerous phishing attacks, online frauds, denial of inventory, and ransomware attacks. As a result of increased risk from cybercrimes and cyber threats, enterprises may look for advanced analytics-based security solutions to manage and detect anomaly behavior of any suspicious attacks in the networks.
