Market Overview

The cloud intrusion protection software market was valued at USD 0.65 billion in 2019?and is expected to reach a value of USD 2.99 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 29.87% over the forecast period, 2020–2025. The use of cloud services is growing rapidly in a broad range of areas as more companies are beginning to implement cloud services.

  • Operation Ghoul, a campaign held by a group of hackers, uses a commercial spyware kit to retrieve valuable business-related data stored in the victim’s network. The group has successfully attacked almost 130 organizations from around 30 countries around the world.
  • In September 2018, hackers gained access to over 30 million user’s record on Facebook. Rather than going for payment information or passwords, cybercriminals stole personal data such as names, relationship status, religion, birthdate, employers, search activity and check-in locations.
  • The increasing number of cyber threats and hacking attempts are driving companies and individual users to use cloud intrusion protection software. In addition, considering the increasing number of intrusion incidents in business networks, there has been an increased IT spending on network security. Intrusion detection and prevention have been the most important hack for IT companies to protect themselves from targeted attacks.



Scope of the Report


The growing number of cyber attacks have pushed enterprises to increase their spending on IT infrastructure to prevent data theft and data breaches. An intrusion detection system (IDS) identify malicious activities over the network and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) prevent data modification or unauthorized access. IDS and IPS include hardware, software, and services. IDS is a passive monitoring system that warns the system administrator of any suspicious activity, while IPS enables the administrator to take appropriate action upon the alert generated by the IDS. Here, the scope is limited to services across various industry verticals and geography.
