The managed security services market is expected to grow from US$ 24.13 billion in 2022 to US$ 50.07 billion by 2028; it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.9% from 2022 to 2028.

Information and data have become the two most important pillars for any business in the current times. Security of the same has also become the topmost priority for enterprises. This is increasing the demand for solutions such as threat management, vulnerability management, log management, security information & event management (SIEM), and compliance management. Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems are two of the most important tools in information security. For the effective layer of security, these two devices need to be tuned in to the network they are monitoring. Keeping these devices integrated and synced with each other prevents the team from chasing many alerts that are false positives, and improved insights that help in taking the right and immediate actions against threats. Firewalls look only at the data traffic alone, while IDS/IPS system looks at the content within the traffic. When consistently tuned, the system can generate many alerts that should be monitored to ensure they are escalated and investigated further if required or dismissed in the case of false alarms. These advanced solutions are being deployed across enterprises for ensuring the timely detection of threats, thereby contributing to the global managed security services market growth.

Moreover, several e-business initiatives such as virtual customer care and e-commerce depend on unprecedented levels of network access and agility. The more organizations rely on unprecedented data networks and the internet, the more vulnerable they become to security breaches that can harm the system as well as the reputation of the company. Managed VPN solutions provide robust VPN connectivity regardless of connection type and speed and are responsible for defense by securing the traffic flowing in and out of the organization. Branch offices, remote workers, and traveling employees can all connect to headquarters with the help of a site-to-site tunnel without comprising security. 

Strategic Insights

Threat Management, commonly known as unified threat management (UTM), is an approach to security management that allows the administrator to manage a comprehensive variety of security-related applications and components through a single management console. UTM is a cloud service that is an evolution over the traditional firewall, which provides various security functions, such as network firewalls, intrusion detection, gateway antivirus, gateway anti-spam, VPN, content filtering, load balancing, data loss prevention, and on-appliance reporting, in a single package. UTM for enterprise includes advanced features such as identity-based access control, load balancing, intrusion prevention, SSL and SSH inspection, and application awareness. The increasing adoption of cloud and digital solutions across industries is elevating the risk of various threats like viruses and intrusion. These factors are influencing the rise in demand for threat management solutions, thereby contributing to the managed security services market growth.
