PALM BEACH, Fla., July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global cyber security market has been growing exponentially over the past several years and is expected to continue for the coming years. The global cyber security market size is expected to reach USD $326.4 billion by 2027, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% from 2020 to 2027, according to the new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. It said: "The rising number of cyber-attacks across networks, applications, and endpoints severely impact organizations in terms of both losses of sensitive data and costs associated with it. Moreover, the increased usage of Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing environment for improved data sharing and storage, and the rising trend towards the digital business transformation expose cases of cyber espionage, phishing, and other security incident breaches. The magnitude of such sophisticated cyber threats is compelling every industry and businesses to secure their networks, protect their data, and enhance their systems to detect threats in advance." Active Companies from around the market with recent developments this week include: Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. (OTCPK: ATDS), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO), CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRWD), Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT).
The report continued: "The cyber threat landscape is continuously evolving with the advancement in technologies such as blockchain technologies, online payment transaction models, digital file-sharing platforms, and digital collaboration and marketing tools. Such technologies increase the potential risk factors for cybersecurity threats. This is due to the influx of the high volume of user traffic that shares sensitive data such as transaction information, demographics, and psychographic information across the web. According to Verizon's Data Breach Investigations Report published in 2020, 86% of the overall breaches were financially motivated, and 22% of the overall breaches involved phishing. On the other hand, 37% of the overall breaches involved were of stolen or used credentials. With rising cases of data breaches, cybersecurity vendors are increasingly investing in analytics, data science models, and predictive machine learning technologies to detect, block and quarantine device vulnerabilities at real-time."
