Surveying The Threat Landscape

Cloud security helps organizations protect networks, endpoints, and applications from various malicious attacks, sophisticated cybercriminals, ransomware, and advanced persistent threats. The main forces driving growth in the cloud security market are increasing adoption of BYOD and IoT technology, more cloud-based security services, more demand for cloud computing, and the emergence of smart cities.

The increased digital identity of all firms and the growing trends of BYOD and IoT have resulted in massive growth in advanced cyberattacks, thus creating the need for more cloud-based security services. This is particularly true in retail, where cloud security services are continuously being deployed to protect customer-sensitive data and the digital identities associated with each customer.

The cloud security market is expected to expand at a 25.5 percent compound annual growth rate and become a $12.73 billion market by 2022, according to MarketsandMarkets. Asia-Pacific offers the strongest growth opportunities due to a strong SMB presence in the region that is turning toward cloud security services to protect against advanced persistent threats.
