Edge Security Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

Edge cybersecurity gives security for computing processes that occur at the farthest reaches of the organization’s network. Frequently, these areas can pose a superior security risk, as the organization’s perimeter does not entirely encompass them. Whenever computations occur closest to the device rather than the network infrastructure, edge computing takes place.

Some general examples are IoT devices, sensors, fitness bands, and self-driving cars. Edge security devices may contain firewalls, routers, WAN devices, etc. They are designed to safeguard an organization from IoT edge computing devices that connects to the network. These security devices are intended to preserve the network’s perimeter and protect the network from edge devices.

Smart edge devices come with built-in processes, artificial intelligence (AI), and analytics and may consequently have embedded edge security. Most medical edge devices contain built-in security, which sometimes competes with enterprise networks. Beyond the perimeter, web filtering, software firewall, anti-malware solutions, intrusion prevention systems, and smart threat detection will analyze the behavior of edge computing devices and supervise them for threats.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Cloud-based security solutions help in meeting the increasing need for IT security. SMEs have become more inclined toward adopting cloud-based security solutions, and cloud-based security service providers can use this opportunity by offering customized services to enterprises globally, which is expected to increase the adoption of edge security services and boost market growth.

Market Restraining Factor

Insufficient budgeting and less awareness

This lack of awareness also caused low budgeting as almost every business face challenges in dealing with the lack of genuine data security and threats. Companies are still failing to allocate the necessary funds for these security solutions. Also, the initial setup cost of the software may be high and require constant supervision. Furthermore, many companies need specialized security software, which might cost extra. The less awareness and the low budget for the implementation of the security solutions like edge security will hamper the market expansion in the projected period.

Component Outlook

Based on component, the edge security market is segmented into solution and services. The solution segment held the highest revenue share in the edge security market in 2021. This is due to the increased risk of malicious activity between the internet and corporate network. The shift to the network edge means users need direct internet access to SaaS and cloud applications, which raises the risk of cyberattack. With edge security, the internet has become a trusted method for connecting enterprise resources. This essential component provides security features to organizations and secure access without compromising performance.
