end user Growth in networking spending is being driven by increased remote and hybrid work models, the ongoing transition from virtual private networks (VPNs) to zero-trust network access (ZTNA), and the shift to cloud-based delivery models, according to Gartner’s Digital Processing statistics published by the server.
Spending on security and risk management products and services, analysts say It will grow by 11.3% in 2023 to a new high of $188.336 billion (£169.052 billion).
“The pandemic has accelerated Hybrid work and the shift to the cloud challenge CISOs [Chief Information Security Officers] to protect an increasingly fragmented enterprise,” said Ruggero Contu, senior director analyst at Gartner.
“Modern CISOs need to focus on adoption by cloud, IT/OT -The expanding attack surface created by digital transformation initiatives such as IoT convergence, remote work and third-party infrastructure integration,” he said. “Demand for technologies and services such as cloud security, application security, ZTNA, and threat intelligence has been on the rise to address new vulnerabilities and risks that result.”
More than two years after the Covid-19 pandemic, Gartner sees continued strong demand for technology that can effectively protect remote hybrid work environments , where organizations remain keen to invest in technologies such as web application firewalls, access management, endpoint protection platforms, and secure web gateways, especially if they can realize a quick return on investment. However, it added that such demand could prove short-lived. somewhat related to the remote mixing trend , ZTNA will continue to be the fastest growing segment of the cybersecurity space, growing more than 30% in both 2022 and next year. According to Gartner, this is due to the need for more protection for remote workers, as well as organizations opting out of VPNs for secure access. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2026, as many as 70% of new remote access deployments compared to VPNs will be served by ZTNA, up from less than 10% by the end of 2021. Going forward, as organizations become more familiar with ZTNA, there will also be a growing trend to use it in office-based environments.
At the same time, it is foreseeable that the The growth is driven by the adoption of multi-cloud environments, which creates higher operational complexity and security risks. Gartner predicts that the combined market for cloud access security brokers and cloud workload protection platforms will grow 26.8% in 2023 to reach $6.7 billion, with strong demand for cloud-based detection and response products, including endpoint and managed detection and response .
In fact, Gartner predicts that the strongest category will prove to be Cloud security, which will grow 26.8% to a total value of $6.688 billion. This was followed by application security, up 24.7 percent to $7.5 billion; data privacy services, up 16.9 percent to $1.477 billion; infrastructure protection, up 16.1 percent to $31.81 billion; and identity access management, up 15.1 percent to $20.746 billion Dollar.
Includes data security services, information security software and comprehensive risk management in 2023 will also see double-digit growth, but by far the largest spending category will remain security services, including consulting, hardware support, implementation and outsourcing services, which will account for $76.468 billion in 2023, up 6.7%.
