The South Korean SCM market recorded positive growth; the Web security segment witnessed stronger growth than the e-mail security segment. Awareness of ransomware, scams, spear phishing and network-based advanced malware attacks drive the adoption of security solutions. SCM vendors are trying to integrate Web and e-mail security features with the solutions they offer. Uptake of e-mail security solutions with network-based advanced malware analysis features witnessed good growth.
In 2018, the manufacturing and the government verticals were key adopters of security solutions. Awareness about ransomware and advanced cyber incidents and compliance with regulations, especially in the government and the banking sectors, fuelled the uptake of SCM solutions. With the introduction of the Information Communication Security Business Regulation under the Korean Ministry of Public Administration and Security (MOPAS), the Web security segment will continue to record robust growth as there is a mandatory requirement for government agencies to adopt Web security solutions for purposes of filtering out malicious content.
The study period is from 2019 to 2023, and the base year is 2018. SCM solutions are the key area of focus and they cover e-mail security and Web security. Vertical segmentation is as follows: government, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), service provider, manufacturing, education, and other sectors (pharmaceuticals, retail, logistics, oil and gas, energy, mining, agriculture, IT/ITES, and BPO). Horizontal segmentation covers large businesses and small and medium businesses.
Important companies in the South Korean SCM market include Jiran Security, Daou (Terrace Tech), Cisco (IronPort), Crinity (3Rsoft), Symantec, Soosan INT (Plus Tech), Forcepoint, and Trend Micro.
The study highlights important market growth drivers and restraints. Key drivers include the constantly evolving risks that drive the need for e-mail and Web security solutions, the stringent security and privacy requirements that push organizations to invest in on-premise security solutions, and the need for productivity management that drives enterprises to invest in these solutions.
