Global Managed Security Services Market was valued at $32.3 billion in 2023 and is expected to $55.8 billion by 2030, witnessing a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2025 - 2030

Published Date: May, 2021

The global market size of managed security services is expected to rise from $32.3 billion in 2022 to $55.8 billion by 2030, during the forecast period, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.8 percent. The main market factors are anticipated to be rising instances of security breaches and an increasing number of attacks that pose a danger to large and small organizational structures. Potential use cases across verticals have been enhanced by the need to take appropriate measures in advance to protect the overall security posture and technical developments in cloud and IoT.

Managed security service providers (MSSPs) conduct services either in-house or remotely, typically via the cloud. MSSPs offer a wide range of security services, from setting up infrastructure through security management or incident response. Some managed security service providers specialize in certain areas while others offer full outsourcing of an enterprise’s information security program.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises in the Asia Pacific (APAC) area have come to depend on MSS as a result of technological developments such as cloud, 5G, and IoT. Government regulations, cybersecurity incidents, and the adoption of cloud technologies are also driving MSS adoption in the area.

The growth of the managed security services industry is expected to be driven by an increase in the number of security breaches and threats that pose a threat to both large and small organisational structures. With the globalisation of business in terms of both size and structure, the task of information security is becoming more complex. Organizations are concerned about the increasing number of security threats and malicious activities perpetrated by organised cyber-criminal groups. Furthermore, the increasing complexity of network infrastructure is presenting a major challenge to data protection management.

During the forecast period, the managed security market size is expected to grow due to increased adoption by the BFSI industry. Both banks and financial institutions are required by regulatory requirements to maintain strict data protection in order to protect sensitive citizens' data. Furthermore, these businesses are looking for a reliable data security system to protect their brand image.

Controlled protection services such as Medical Device Penetration Testing, Network Segmentation for Medical Devices, Device Inventory and Risk Analysis, Medical Device Risk Assessments, and ongoing incident response can play an integral role in protecting both patient-related organizations and hospital data in the healthcare vertical.  In addition, Regulated Security Services also allows healthcare providers to comply with the strict compliance of the Health Insurance Portability and Transparency Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Increased cybercrime activity and cost-effectiveness are two factors that are expected to boost the market size for controlled security services. Governments around the world, on the other hand, are developing a slew of new information security legislation that could stifle the demand for controlled security services. In addition, the increasing use of mobile devices in the workplace would generate lucrative opportunities for the industry.

With the growth in the number of cybersecurity threats and attacking tools, the requirement for advanced cybersecurity solutions to deal with such attacks is growing exponentially. The traditional cybersecurity solutions are not enough accomplished from securing the organizations from advanced threats of cloud, network endpoint security among others. In addition, huge algorithms are required for a cybersecurity solutions provider to develop technically advanced solutions. Further, high cost associated with cybersecurity solutions and services limit the adoption among the small and medium enterprises.
