Drivers –Industrial Control System Security Market
- Increasing cyber threats on critical infrastructure drive the market growth
Growing number of cyber threats has been pushing the industrial control system security market. Industrial control systems in manufacturing, chemical, energy, and other industries is increasing with growing number of cyber-attacks. As hacking groups of all kinds attempt to breach the networks of industries, there has been increasing adoption of ICS security which set to drive the market growth. In addition to these, adoption of advanced technologies had led to the creation of huge data and this has further created demand for ICS security, thereby driving the market.
- Adoption of advanced technologies
Adoption of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) in industries has created demand for ICS security market. The huge number of connected sensors and controllers in the industrial network infrastructure has made more complex for security. Increasing adoption of IoT technology and other network devices in industries has increased the threat surface for the criminals. This has made a critical requirement for ICS security in IoT applications of organizations, thereby driving the market.
Challenges – Industrial Control System Security Market
- Lack of awareness about Industrial Control System Security
One of the major challenge is the lack of security awareness and vulnerabilities associated with the systems in enterprises. In many ICS environments, automated asset management and configuration controls are not leveraged. Lack of understanding in asset network management creates vulnerability issue which hampers the market growth. In addition to these, there is a lack of collaboration between ICS and security vendors for the innovation of the right technologies. As there is increase in adoption of advanced technologies by ICS vendors, there has been an increase in interconnectivity within the existing corporate networking infrastructures and internet, making ICS more exposed to threats. Therefore, organizations face a major challenge in understanding the nature of targeted attacks and ensuring protection against them and this restricts the market growth.
