Enterprise Incident Response Market Booms to $14bn as Attacks and Threats Multiply

Oyster Bay, New York - 18 Dec 2012

The Enterprise Incident Response market is set to see highly dynamic growth over the next few years, totaling $14.79 billion by 2017. The number of malicious cyber agents is rising and they are attacking, hacking, and spying on organizations with impunity. From start-ups to large multinationals, every business is fair game. Enterprises today are bound to face cyber-attacks and malware infections at some point in their life cycle – and many will struggle to deal with those threats effectively.

This plague is gaining momentum. For this reason, ABI Research expects the market for security solutions to be primed for strong growth. Traditional IDS/IPS, UTMS, and SIEM will continue to dominate as essential response tools, but ABI Research sees a niche market in intelligence gathering services making a solid breakthrough over the forecasted period.

“A new wave of targeted services in offensive security is emerging in answer to the growing number of cyber-attacks against enterprises,” says Michela Menting, senior analyst in cyber security. “Incident response solutions are increasingly moving from a reactive to a pre-emptive model in an effort to help organizations regain the upper hand in their battle against malicious cyber agents.”
