Market Report Description

The Global Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection Market size is expected to reach $15.1 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 19.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) means a set of harmful activities intended to enter into an administration’s computing resources with the motive to gain some information illegally and causes damage to the respective organization. They are very tough to detect and eliminate as they don’t clearly appear to be malware and also may be established very deeply into an administration’s computing systems.

The initiators and designers of the APT are steadily monitoring and guiding its actions by altering its code to avoid detection and transform it into a changing set of behaviors. Basically, an organization that has been penetrated will not even be alert of it and may only become alert at a much later time by monitoring through log analysis via Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools or through outbound communication activity.

A speedily evolving threat landscape is the dynamic factor for the rise in the demand for protection systems in the market. The application of this protection system is visible in defense and government, financial services and insurance, healthcare, banking, and others, which has resulted to the growth of the ATP protection marketplace. The forensic analysis marketplace is also anticipated to grow at a maximum rate. The main factors contributing towards the growing demand for ATP protection in the marketplace are the advancements that are made in technology, rising adoption of cloud in the enterprises, stringent government regulations, and increasing consciousness towards securing confidential information.
