Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Microsegmentation is a security network technique that enables security architect to divide data centers into security segments and reduce individual workload level. This segmentation is used to provide support to security teams to establish control and deliver services for each unique segment of the infrastructure. Security teams are deploying security policies inside data centers using network virtualization technique instead of installing multiple firewalls. Moreover, microsegmentation can also be used to protect virtual machine by installing security application in an enterprise network. Microsegmentation provides many benefits such as reducing risk of cyberattack, improve lateral movement security, implementation of secure policies in data centers & cloud, and improves regulatory compliance posture. Nowadays, cyber security issues have become a major threat for businesses. After analyzing recent threats and cyber security trends, analysts have concluded that huge amount of data breaches have happened from organizations and (IoT) devices. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the number of data breaches increased to 4,100 million in the first half of 2019. These factors are expected to facilitate demand for microsegmentation, thereby driving the microsegmentation market growth.
The global microsegmentation market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027) due to the adoption of advanced technologies such as internet of things (IoT). Nowadays, companies have large amount of data, which makes it difficult for companies to handle such complex data. Cyber-attacks are increasing due to connectivity through the usage of big data, cloud, social media, and other mobile services. Adoption of social media, cloud, and many other applications have also increased insider threat into networks, which can cause significant loss to the IT industry. For instance, on June 12, 2019, Akamai Technologies launched a Cloud Edge platform that is designed to securely deliver data to connected devices. According to IoT Analytics Research, around 22,000 million connected devices will deliver data across the internet by 2020. Billions of applications such as virtual machines will send trillions of messages, which can pose a challenge for businesses to protect sensitive data and information.
Most of the companies are adopting SaaS (Software as a Service) based applications for security purposes and it has been observed that 35% of the organizations were using this application in 2017. The adoption rate is expected to reach 73% by 2020. For instance, in June 2019, Cipher cloud, a provider of cyber securities solutions, launched a new safety feature in its CipherCloud Zero Trust CASB+ platform, which is used to prevent threats by using data protection techniques. These factors are expected to increase demand for microsegmentation.
The major factor restraining growth of the global microsegmentation market is the high operational and infrastructure cost of installing these services. All companies are migrating to the SaaS or cloud platform in order to protect their data from cyberattacks and this migration will involve time & money investment. Thus, in turn, is expected to hinder growth of the microsegmentation market over the forecast period.
Global Microsegmentation Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:
COVID-19 pandemic is expected to drive growth of the market during the forecast period. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, several industries have witnessed a significant shift in terms of security in their business. There has been a significant impact on the growth of the microsegmentation market. Moreover, several cases of cybercrimes have been observed. Cyber threat has been increasing, as every part of the demographic has searched information related to COVID-19 by using a malicious domain name registered with names such as COVID-19 or coronavirus. For instance, according to Palo Alto Networks Inc., more than 40,000 suspicious registered domain names were identified at the end of March 2020. Moreover, in recent times, the use of identical business email addresses are also used to carry out cyber-attacks. Due to the rise in cyber threats, several organizations are adopting microsegmentation solutions and configuring malware detection, protection, and mitigation strategies.
North America held dominant position in the global microsegmentation market in 2019
North America held dominant position in the global microsegmentation market in 2019, accounting for 45.2% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.
Figure 1: Global Microsegmentation Market Share (%), By Region, 2019
North America is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to the presence of key players in the region such as Palo Alto Networks, Inc., Symantec Corporation, Okta, Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., and Akamai Technologies. Moreover, increased spending on security solutions by large enterprises and SMEs is a major factor driving the market growth. For instance, in May 2020, Cisco Inc. acquired ThousandEyes, Inc., a U.S.-based network intelligence company, for around US$ 1,000 million to provide security to the network. Moreover, the increasing number of stringent policies for maintaining data privacy and security are also contributing to the market growth. For instance, in February, the U.S. government invested US$ 1,740 million in cyber defense in the budget for 2020.
Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit highest growth during the forecast period, owing to the growing digital connectivity. According to a report by the Data Security Council of India (DSCI), India was the second most cyber-attacks affected country between 2016 and 2018. Furthermore, the average cost for a data breach in India has increased by 7.9% and the average cost per breach rose to US$ 64. The rising adoption of internet of things (IoT) has increased cyber-attacks in the IT industries. For instance, unauthorized access and malicious software updates have increased the risk related to cyber-attacks. These factors are expected to drive demand for microsegmentation solutions to reduce or mitigate these losses.
