Report Overview

The global threat intelligence market size was estimated at USD 3.02 billion in 2016. Use of intelligence is increasingly gaining strategic imperative amongst organizations to understand the threats based on available data points, which may propel the industry growth over the forecast period.

U.S. threat intelligence market

Emerging cybercrime landscape across both developed and emerging economies have highlighted a concern for the organizations. Governments, as well as many large organizations, are working towards bridging the gap between the spending in cybersecurity systems and seeking out an optimum result with the gathered threat artifacts to mitigate or reduce arising threats. The applicability and usefulness of intelligence have led organizations to integrate contextual information and data points to determine relevant threats to the business and thus providing actionable strategy towards the same.

Cybercriminals across the globe are abusing network security and gaining privileged access which is owed to rise in the sophistication of cyber-attacks. Moreover, the attackers are working as a legitimate organization that is anticipated to emerge on a larger scale and increases fear of attack on sectors such as BFSI, government, healthcare, and others. The factors as mentioned earlier have led to growing security awareness and is thus resulting in higher spending on threat intelligence solutions with an aim to combat or mitigate risk to the organization.

The UK and U.S. governments’ supportive approach towards sharing threat feeds of rising cybercrime enables state as well as other private organizations to accumulate data and come up with preventive measures in advance. The global influential geopolitical countries such as China, India, Russia, and the U.S. have formed APT units to secure sensitive data on businesses and governments which is an extension of intelligence collection policies`.

Deployment Insights

Cloud-based deployment is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR of 18.0% over the forecast period. Enterprises are migrating from on-premise to cloud-based solutions as they are cost-effective. Moreover, organizations are finding it difficult to manage the on-premise solutions owing to issues such as lack of expertise and resource as well as budget constraints. The adoption of public cloud is accelerating at a high pace leading to the demand for cloud-based security solutions.

The cloud-based security adoption is expected to increase in the near future owing to the growing adoption of cloud storage systems. Economies including Russia and Australia have passed strict regulations on the storage of data domestically on cloud servers rather than using foreign cloud servers. For instance, Australia passed 13 new Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which the private and public sectors comply with for ensuring cloud security.

The industry is expected to witness growth in projects including the use of cloud as government organizations are opting for cloud platforms for data sharing. The use of cloud platforms has led to huge savings, and several commercial and government organizations are migrating to cloud storage, resulting in strong growth for cloud security solutions.
