Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: One of the major trends witnessed in the market is the increasing demand for cloud-based security solutions. The demand for cloud-based security solutions is increasing in the Global IT Security Spending market, primarily because of the significant advantages attributed to such solutions. Moreover, companies are finding it difficult to manage standalone or integrated network components because of issues such as budget constraints, and lack of resources and expertise to address security issues. Hence, companies are increasingly opting for cloud-based IT security solutions, which are cost-effective, compliant with PCI DSS, and offer round-the-clock monitoring of the system. Therefore, the increasing demand for cloud-based solutions is expected to contribute to the growth of the Global IT Security Spending market during the forecast period.
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the need to improve the quality of protection. As the frequency of attacks is increasing, organizations are increasingly implementing IT security solutions that efficiently monitor and provide enhanced protection.
