North America To Hold The Largest Market Share
North America is the major hub for all the major enterprises in the world. The expansion of the retail sector and the growth of IoT are driving the demand for smart devices and mobiles in the region. Cyber-attacks in North America, especially in the United States, are rising rapidly and have reached an all-time high, owing to the increasing number of connected devices in the region. In the United States, consumers use public clouds and many of their mobile applications are preloaded with their personal information for the convenience of banking, shopping, communication, etc. In 2016, there have been a number of cyber-attacks, ranging from the theft of 40 million debit and credit card information to compromising over 22.8 million private records of New Yorkers from the New York Attorney General. Most of the private-company and personal data are at the risk of security breach. Moreover, the rise in the number of portable smart devices has led to an increase in the number of endpoints, which has augmented the number of security breach. All these factors have been instrumental while driving the growth of the endpoint security market in North America.
Increasing Number Of Mobile Devices
There is an increasing concern regarding the level of mobile protection that is being offered as endpoint security solution. Yet, there is an increasing importance of mobile devices in any organization as of the current scenario. Device control is a growing concern in the organizations, as proper device control is necessary to protect the confidential data. There are many mediums by which confidential information that are difficult to track can be compromised, thus, leaving vulnerabilities in the network. There is a need for embedded security, as mobile endpoints store a large amount of application and critical data. It has been identified that cyber criminals have turned mobile endpoints as their main targets. For instance, in India, according to the RBI, SBI reported frauds worth INR 2,236.81 crore, followed by Punjab National Bank at INR 2,250.34 crore, and then Axis Bank at INR 1,998.49 crore, mainly due to frauds in mobile and internet banking.
With the advancements in the mobile technology, mobile endpoint security solutions need to manage the current mobility environment, with a mix of mobile endpoints, operating systems, and other personal data without compromising the user experience, privacy, and data. To take full advantage of the workforce mobilization, enterprises need to come up with more efficient and comprehensive enterprise mobility management solutions, rather than relying on short-term management solutions. Such a solution is offered by Symantec Corporation for endpoint protection of mobiles that responds in real time to many identified threats and takes deliberate actions and also leverages on machine learning, to protect connected devices and resources.
