Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Insider Threat Protection Market size is expected to reach USD 38 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 19% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of insider threat protection was USD 4 Billion. Growing levels of digitization in many sectors of the economy have left modern enterprises vulnerable in many ways, and the present landscape of cyber threats has rendered old preventative security measures ineffective. Bypassing conventional network protections, threats can be detected early thanks to insider threat prevention. 91% of companies are working on a digital project, and 87% of senior company executives believe that digitization should be a top priority, according to a study.

In addition to these, growing information security awareness will drive up demand for the market. Businesses were using security measures primarily to protect and preserve the integrity of vital data. However, due to a sharp growth in data hacking and cybercrimes, businesses are now concentrating on implementing insider threat prevention to safeguard their business apps and lower overall organizational risk.

Insider Threat Protection Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Use of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Cloud- With the introduction of cloud and IoT technologies, insider threat protection can be deployed. With more and more businesses migrating their systems and applications to cloud services and introducing IoT devices, there is an increasing need for effective threat security tools that can detect and protect these devices and systems. Adoption of the cloud and IoT may increase the need for insider threat prevention solutions by advancing the applications and systems that require security. Over 94% of enterprise organizations have used cloud computing. Over 90% of businesses use the cloud. All of these signs point to the market's growth in the upcoming years.
  • Increase in The Number of Cyberattacks - Threats from cyberattacks are growing, as is the financial toll that cybercrime takes on the financial services industry. Even though there have been numerous large-scale cyberattacks over the past 15 years, such as data theft, cyberfraud, distributed denial of service (DDoS), and intellectual property loss, the impact of these attacks has grown faster than the organization's ability to prevent and recover from them. Businesses typically focus on internal risks, although insiders are far more likely to be the source of a cyberattack in the capital markets. Consequently, during the course of the forecast period, these elements are promoting the market's expansion. Annually, about 800,000 individuals become targets of cyberattacks. The rate of cybercrime has risen by 300% since the COVID-19 outbreak started.
  • Increasing Focus on Compliance and Data Privacy to Support Market Expansion- Globally, businesses and governments are beginning to examine their current data privacy policies more closely, which could further open up growth prospects for the insider threat prevention industry. Moreover, one of the main reasons propelling the insider threat protection market expansion is the enforcement and introduction of new laws to guarantee greater standards of privacy and information security.


  • Organizations' shortcomings in managing vast volumes of data for examination- Massive amounts of data coming from numerous scattered sensors (PCs, servers, network tools, etc.) within an organization should ideally be handled by an insider threat protection system. However, the data must be homogeneous in one location and driven by several operating systems and protocols in order to store, study, and analyze the collected data for viewing, storage, and analysis. As such, issues about software, technology, and other aspects arise during the process of collecting and analyzing insider threat prevention data.
  • Another reason that obstacle to the insider threat protection market expansion are the detection of sophisticated threats and a lack of security knowledge.
  • One of the other reasons that could prevent the insider threat prevention market from expanding is small businesses' reluctance to implement the technology because of financial constraints.

Insider Threat Protection Segmentation

Vertical (BFSI, IT & Telecom, Retail & E-Commerce, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Government & Defense, Energy & Utilities)

Based on vertical, the BFSI segment in the insider threat protection market is anticipated to hold the largest revenue share of about 35% during the forecast period. Because the BFSI sector is in charge of holding significant amounts of vital data, businesses are always vulnerable to cyberattacks. Furthermore, the fact that financial institutions are spending a lot of money to provide digital services across a variety of channels is leading to the creation of new vulnerabilities. As per the 2020 VMware Carbon Black Threat Data report, there was a roughly 240% global increase in cyberattacks targeting the financial industry between February and April 2020. In order to safeguard apps and digital assets against fraud and manipulation, businesses in the BFSI industry are heavily integrating application security testing technologies and services.

Solution (Software, Services)

Based on solution, the software segment in the insider threat protection market is attributed to hold the largest revenue share of about 60% during the forecast period. The segment is growing as the best degree of protection features, including cloud-based endpoint detection, threat understanding and intelligence, behavioral protection, and a range of security analytics approaches, are offered by insider threat prevention software. For example, in April 2023, DTEX Systems—a provider of insider risk and threat management solutions—announced that one of the world's largest banks had chosen DTEX InTERCEPT, an insider risk management program, to increase regulatory compliance and enhance perceptibility into insider threat management. The bank will be able to improve insider risk management within the company with the help of this cybersecurity technology. During the projection period, the segment's growth would be further propelled by such innovations.
