The Network Forensics Market was valued at USD 2.13 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 4.84 billion by 2026 and grow at a CAGR of 14.9% over the forecast period (2021-2026).
  • As enterprises are continuously being targeted by hackers, and the malware are circumventing existing security systems and not triggering alarms on traditional security information and event management (SIEM) tools. Network forensics is enabling companies to better protect data and realize vulnerabilities in the system. With the increasing investments in security in the technological landscape, network forensics is emerging as one of the leading solutions in the industry.
  • Increasing trends of BYOD and remote computing are creating a need for technologies that can be deployed instantly and scaled without the need for additional infrastructure. Additionally, with industries shifting most of the computing needs to cloud, the need for security in this application is on a rise. Due to companies offering flexible pricing and demand-based models, cloud-based models are witnessing an accelerated growth in the market, which is anticipated to continue during the forecast period.
  • Small and medium businesses, which are more prone to attacks, find the need to deploy better security systems, however, the affordability comes into play to hire in-house full-time security professional. Therefore, most of the business coming from SMBs is through managed services.

Key Market Trends

IT and Telecom Sector to Account for a Significant Share
  • IT and telecom companies form a major segment in the critical infrastructure of any country, and multiple industries depend on their network for being operational. Therefore, the impact of a network attack can be vast and far-reaching, if it impacts the IT and telecom industry. Even a minor attack, or claims of an attack, can lead a company to shut down the critical services that the consumers and businesses rely upon.
  • The sector is also booming with opportunities for network operators to transform their revenue models, through the development of advanced and innovative digital services, related to IoT, 5G, e-commerce, OTT communications, and mobile payments or managed services.
  • At the same time, offering an enhanced network experience and implementing innovative and customized services are essential to driving up revenue.
  • These factors are also motivating the studied market vendors to innovate their product offering, targeting these customers.
  • Leading organizations have been attacked by phishers. Therefore, proper cyber security skills are especially important when it comes to security analytics and operations, according to the vendors in the market.

North America to Dominate the Market
  • North America, among the lead innovators and pioneers, in terms of adoption of network forensics solutions, is one of the largest markets. Moreover, the region has a strong foothold of vendors in the market.
  • The increasing use of the internet and digital communications systems, especially in the shape of the Internet of things (IoT), leads to the increasing demand for competence in network forensics
  • The growing popularity of IoT and BYOD trends has also resulted in the growth of cyber-crimes, forcing organizations to use network security solutions. The rise in connected devices in the region has made enterprise networks more complex. The evolving network landscape has generated the need among enterprises to reassess their network security infrastructure and adopt robust network solutions.
  • The US Department of Defense has invested a massive amount in modernizing their infrastructure in the past. In April 2018, the Defense Systems Information Agency (DISA) of DoD announced their plan to upgrade the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) with 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) transport speeds to a 100 Gbps packet-optical transport system.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the key players are Symantec Corporation, Cisco Systems Inc., IBM Corporation, Netscout Systems Inc., Viavi Solutions Inc., Fireeye Inc., RSA Security LLC, FireEye Inc., and NIKSUN Incorporated, among others. This market is characterized by growing levels of product penetration, moderate product differentiation, and high levels of competition. Vendors in the market are exhibiting acquisitions as a core strategy, in order, to increase their portfolio. Most of these startups have been acquired by market incumbents. Therefore, the emergence of security firms by acquisitions of businesses specializing in network forensics intensifies the competitive rivalry further. Hence, the market is consolidated.
  • February 2019 - IBM announced a new portfolio of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, which team artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics designed to help asset intensive organizations, like the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), to improve maintenance strategies.
  • February 2019 - IBM developed a new technology to predict and monitor when and where trees and vegetation threaten the power lines, which may help improve power supply operations and reduce outages.
