Growing cyber attacks to propel global threat intelligence platforms: report
North America is the largest market for commercial TIPs and will continue to dominate through 2022.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis finds that the growing volume and complexities of cyber threats present a compelling case for adopting threat intelligence platforms (TIPs).
Assessment of the Global Threat Intelligence Platforms Market, Forecast to 2022 shows these solutions help organizations navigate the ever-increasing threat landscape and allow for further analysis and threat intelligence operationalization. The TIP market is one of the cybersecurity markets that will be least affected by COVID-19. It is estimated to reach US$234.9 million by 2022 from US$132.7 million in 2019, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21%.
“The proliferation of TIP use cases indicates the convergence of the TIP space with adjacent markets,” said Mikita Hanets, Information & Communication Technologies research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, in a prepared statement. “Vendors increasingly aim to offer some elements of TIP functionality in security, orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) and security information and event management (SIEM) platforms and vice versa. Going forward, solutions that enable businesses to operationalize threat-related data and set up workflows for cyber incidents will converge in the next three years.”
Hanets added: “North America will dominate the market and contribute the maximum revenue, followed by Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Technology and telecommunications will be the fastest-growing vertical market for TIP vendors in the next two years, while banking and finance is expected to contribute the most by 2022.”
The growing sophistication of attacks and the necessity of using threat intelligence for proactive cyber defense present immense growth prospects for market participants who:
- Increase their presence in geographical areas like EMEA, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, where the penetration rate is currently low.
- Expand the network of third-party SOAR integrations or develop native SOAR capabilities. Enterprises with mature cybersecurity practices need intelligence-powered SOAR.
- Develop SIEM capabilities to offer seamless, intelligence-driven solutions. TIP vendors can build on their data management experience and offer a fully consolidated solution.
- Develop threat detection and threat hunting capabilities to enable investigations of security incidents. Threat intelligence is instrumental in securing enterprises because it enables security teams to prevent cyberattacks in real time and identify a breach that might have occurred in the past.
- Develop or acquire intelligence-driven vulnerability and risk management technology. The ability to assess an organization’s exposure and the risk to its global threat data is a key feature of the next generation of solutions.
