Increasing investment in advanced cybersecurity among large enterprises solutions
Increasing investment in advanced cybersecurity among large enterprises solutions is augmenting the cybersecurity market growth. Different industry verticals are transforming their equipment with the digital machines. These digital equipment are generally data driven and tend to work as per their programming. The cybercriminals attack these systems and encrypt the operations of the machines and demand for high ransom to provide the encryption key. These factors are thriving the demand for cybersecurity solutions.

Such fraudulent activities are augmenting the demand for cybersecurity solutions further driving the market growth. Furthermore, the companies are scanning their employees' systems every now and then to get rid of any bugs or unknown entities using cybersecurity solutions.
COVID-19 Impact on Global Cybersecurity Market
The global pandemic has forced different industry verticals to operate remotely. The employees are working from home and are using servers and routers with least protection which are accounted for higher cyber risk. Moreover, the education sector is highly dependent on the internet facility for online classes. Likewise, the healthcare sector is generating huge amounts of personal and financial data that are likely to be one of the major targets for cyber criminals. Such factors are supporting the demand for cybersecurity solutions and services. Adoption of the new solutions by the large organizations is thriving the demand for advanced cybersecurity technologies.

Over the years identity theft complaints have surged while fraud complaints topped the position of cyberattacks. Moreover, medium and small sized companies are more prone to cyberattacks owing to their limited technical infrastructure and minimal cybersecurity investment. However, in the last five years medium sized companies have increased their security investment further driving the market demand. Cybercrime is expected to cost companies USD 10.5 trillion by 2025.
The emergence of AI integrated cybersecurity solutions is creating new opportunities for the industry players.
