Indian Managed Security Services Market, Forecast to 2022
In 2017, the Indian MSS market recorded a growth of 27.9% on a YoY basis. The MSS market witnessed a growth in the uptake of services because of the increased digitization and the expanding landscape of advanced threats.
The Indian Government continued to focus on the move toward ‘Digital India’ and emphasized on the rising need to make the digital platforms cyber safe. Internet penetration in India is on the upswing, and there is a constant need to keep digital government records safe. As MSSPs are now being engaged to manage security needs, they are offering on-premises, remote, and hybrid deployment models. They are also introducing advanced solutions, based on artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, for faster threat detection and remediation.
Uptake of cyber security solutions by SMBs remained limited, with a slow adoption of MSSP services. SMBs continue to face challenges due to the constantly changing technology landscape, lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals, and limited budget to invest in advanced solutions.
India continues to face a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals which often causes firms to outsource their security needs.
