Summary

Companies worldwide are increasingly aware of the threat posed by cyberattacks, yet cybersecurity is still not a core competency for a worryingly large number of corporate boards. The frequency and severity of cyberattacks will only increase, so senior executives across all industries must develop a clear understanding of the risks they face and the potential consequences of a security breach.

In 2020 companies will commit further resources to mitigate their exposure to cyber threats. Intelligence-led security programs will be used to detect and prevent attacks, particularly among larger firms. Managed security service providers and cloud-based security as a service vendors will fill gaps where firms lack the necessary skills in-house. Demand for post-breach consultancy services and behavioral analytics software will also increase, as companies seek to strengthen their defenses.

This report provides information on key themes that will impact the security software sector over the next two years, including cloud, network security, security as a service, behavioral analytics, mobile device management software, M&A, regulations.
