The cybersecurity landscape is complex. Today’s always-connected world offers a myriad of opportunities for cyberattackers to disrupt countries, organizations, and individuals. Maintaining the security of IT systems is a constant struggle for organizations of all types. Cyberattacks are frequent and increasingly complex, perpetrated by those furthering a geopolitical cause or attackers intent on making money. State-sponsored attacks are a significant risk. No one-not even security providers themselves - is safe from attack. Companies manage an array of assets, including infrastructure, applications, managed and unmanaged endpoints, mobile devices, and cloud services - all of which are under threat. New vulnerabilities can be uncovered at any time, and there is also the worry of an insider attack.

Key Highlights

  • In 2021, enterprises invested more in cybersecurity and cloud architecture due to employees working remotely during the pandemic. This also sparked an M&A boom in the tech sector. Most cybersecurity M&A deals in 2021 were related to managed security services, network security, endpoint security, identity management, and cloud security. Microsoft, which bought cloud infrastructure company CloudKnox, threat intelligence and attack service management firm RiskIQ, and Internet of Things (IoT) security company ReFirm Labs, was one of the leading acquirers in 2021. Google added to its security capabilities by buying Mandiant (formerly FireEye) for $5.4 billion in March 2022, not long after purchasing threat detection firm Siemplify
  • Securing hybrid working, coping with ransomware and continuing supply chain threats, and moving to a zero-trust security model as a long-term solution to data breaches will drive strong security growth over the next three years. Innovation will be needed to counter the continuously evolving cyberthreat landscape that includes the fallout from the Ukraine-Russia conflict. According to the publisher's estimates, the global cybersecurity industry will grow from $125.5 billion in 2020 to $198.0 billion in 2025 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5%
