Automated Breach and Attack Simulation Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2029

The automated breach and attack simulation market is expanding due to the rising complexity of managing security risks and the spike in need for prioritizing security investments. Also, the market for automated breach and assault simulation is expanding favorably as the number of cyberattacks increases globally. On the other hand, it's anticipated that the rise in digitalization initiatives will present lucrative chances for the growth of the automated breach and attack simulation market during the forecast period.

Due to escalating security investments and concerns over compliance with security requirements, the market for automated breach & attack simulation is anticipated to expand globally. By modeling actual attack situations, the automated breach and attack simulation solutions are the platforms or technologies that make it possible to automate security assessment. These solutions enhance data security by assisting users in finding flaws in the current security system.

The volume of industrial data is growing, and there is a growing need for analytics tools and solutions to strengthen organizational security and improve facility operations. These are the main drivers of market growth. The automated breach and simulation solutions can be used to launch automated attacks, frequently utilized to launch unexpected or planned simulated attacks. To launch complex assaults and evaluate the condition of an organization's cybersecurity infrastructure, they have artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak positively affected the expansion of the automated breach and attack simulation market because of these factors: a rise in the popularity of digital solutions; a rise in the threat of cyberattacks from unethical hackers’ trend. Small and medium businesses were encouraged to adopt effective ABAS solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic, which drove the growth of the automated breach and attack simulation (ABAS) market. This has helped to bridge the gap between current security architecture and cyber-attacks that use advanced methods to penetrate organizational resources.

Market Growth Factors

Growing incidence of data breaches rising need for ABAS solutions

Numerous layers of preventive measures should ideally be included in any sound network architecture. The network architecture must have preventive and investigative controls in addition to the former. The majority of cyberattacks cannot be prevented. Despite the firewall's ability to block specific types of traffic from entering the network, preventive techniques may fail to identify and stop such attacks. When harmful or illegal traffic enters the system while evading security measures, the logs may not show that it did so. To detect an impending attack, these harmful entries are not examined. As a result, to recognize and stop such assaults, solid network architecture and automated breach and attack simulation solutions are required.

Growing complexities in managing security threats

Continuous and rapid increases in the digitization of business could be observed globally, increasing the number of application-based solutions. However, no such solutions have resolved all application-related security issues. The simulated platform is effective in resolving the issues and aiding in the system's vulnerability investigation. In addition, once a vulnerability has been identified, developers can readily protect the enterprise system from the identified vulnerabilities. Due to this growing complexity in managing security threats, the need for automated breach and attack simulation solutions arises, leading to market expansion.

Market Restraining Factors

Dearth of skilled professionals

A pricey service is penetration testing. Both service providers & client firms may suffer financial losses if penetration testing is not done correctly. Several employers say there is a scarcity of cybersecurity professionals, and they think this shortfall directly impacts their businesses. This highlights the necessity for proper and better security professional training, which will close the skill gap and produce the necessary competence for locating and assessing cyberattacks. The lack of security professionals could slow the market's expansion.

Offering Outlook

Based on offering, the automated breach and attack simulation market is segmented into platforms & tools, and services. The platforms & tools segment held the highest revenue share in the automated breach and attack simulation market in 2022. This is because cybersecurity providers provide automated breach and attack simulation solutions as a platform. The end-users are encouraged to choose these solutions since they mimic attacks along the entire kill chain and remove any additional danger during continuous upgrades and maintenance.

Deployment Mode Outlook

On the basis of deployment mode, the automated breach and attack simulation market is fragmented into on-premises, and cloud. In 2022, the cloud segment garnered a significant revenue share in the automated break-and-attack simulation market. Organizations are using cloud-based ABAS solutions to reduce costs and increase business agility. Due to its affordability and simplicity, SMEs favor cloud-based implementation. Small businesses can examine vulnerabilities and lessen the threat environment at a far lower cost with the help of the cloud-based deployment of these solutions, boosting their ability to serve customers.

Application Outlook

By application, the automated breach and attack simulation market is divided into configuration management, patch management, threat management and others. The threat management acquired a substantial revenue share in the automated breach and attack simulation market in 2022. Threat intelligence systems gather and analyze data from many sources about the current and emerging threat vectors to produce actionable threat management feeds & reports that different security control solutions can efficiently use. These solutions assist organizations in protecting themselves against the potential occurrences of data breaches by informing them of the hazards of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), zero-day assaults, and other similar concerns.

End User Outlook

Based on end user, the automated breach and attack simulation market is bifurcated into enterprises & data centers, and managed service providers. In 2022, the enterprise & data centers segment registered the maximum revenue share in the automated breach and attack simulation market. There is still a significant gap in the effectiveness of proactively mitigating new attack vectors despite increasing cybersecurity spending from various end users, and most incidents go unreported or are only partially reported. To combat today's sophisticated cyberattacks, businesses are considering implementing a proactive strategy for breach mitigation.
