According to a study conducted by Norton Cyber-Crime, more than 1.5 million people are victims of cybercrime in Africa. Further, it was estimated that 80% of personal computers are infected with viruses and malicious software. This in turn is further predicted to drive the cybersecurity market in Middle East and Africa.
Moreover the growing concerns about reducing IT security risks, increasing incidences of enterprise targeted cyber-attacks and threats and penetration of smart offices in multinational corporations and digitization projects in the Middle East and Africa regions is driving the growth of cyber security market in order to prevent the enterprises from cyber attacks and cyber criminals.
Middle East and Africa lacks cybersecurity legislation which has a negative impact on business of cybersecurity companies. It does not have effective anti-spam and cybercrime laws and regulations to ensure safe use of the internet for carrying out online transactions. Further, the lack of security personnel is another one of the major restraints of cyber security market. The increasing skill gap among the employees is predicted to negatively impact the countries’ digitization transformational plans and hamper the security of critical assets. Moreover, hackers are becoming better at disguising their attacks which might lead to increasing incidences of data breaches, theft, loss and cyber attacks across the region.
Some of the affluent industry leaders in the Middle East & Africa cybersecurity market are IBM Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, Intel Corporation, Thomas Bravo, NortanLifeLock, Palo Alto Networks and Avast.
