The virtualization security market is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.6% during the forecast period
The global virtualization security market size is expected to grow from USD 1.3 billion in 2019 to USD 2.7 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.6% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of virtual applications across SMEs and large enterprises. Driven by multiple factors, such as flexibility, cost-saving, and availability, an increasing number of companies are transferring their data to the cloud (though this is also exposing these companies to various risks associated with virtualization). However, lack of awareness about virtualization security and compatibility issues with legacy systems restrain the market growth.

Anti-malware solution segment is expected to have a significant market share during the forecast period
Malware is becoming an increasing concern in the virtual infrastructure. With the advent of worms, such as DejaBlue and IoT Linux, which attacks target users’ devices, anti-malware in the guest OS is insufficient. IDS/IPS solutions can detect and block some malware at the network level during and after infection. However, to fully back up guest OS anti-malware, virtualization security solutions must perform online and offline scanning and remediation of files and VMs. Furthermore, unlike physical machines, there would are likely to be several many more dormant VMs than existing ones. Unless these dormant VMs are also scanned and remediated, they can introduce infections when booted.

Consulting services in the service segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period
Consulting services provide knowledge and advice, in-depth product description, and solutions for critical issues. These services are provided by highly qualified industry experts, domain experts, and security professionals. These professionals help organizations formulate virtualization security strategies, prevent revenue losses, minimize risks, understand the maturity of their security solutions, and enhance security in the existing IT systems. Consulting service providers guide companies in setting up advanced virtualization security policies to address their specific security requirements in a way feasible for them and understand new technologies that secure their enterprise business.
