The market of cybersecurity is going through a major paradigm shift right now. We are currently witnessing a lot of mergers and acquisitions taking place in the market. Here is a quick cybersecurity market analysis that presents the top 3 trends that are emerging right now.
Big Go After Niche
In a startling trend, we are seeing a lot of big players of the industry looking to acquire smaller but niche players of the market. The smaller niche players have been acting as a disruptive force in the cyber security market. The bigger players who offer all round services are looking to acquire these market disruptors to not only stabilize the market but also to gain a competitive edge with niche offerings.
A lot of small players of the market are also looking to merge and acquire other entities as a growth strategy. For such smaller deals, geographic distribution seems to be the key. Smaller players who are looking to grow by expanding operations in other geographies are choosing to acquire a player from that geo instead of setting up an operations unit there.
So far deals by US based entities dominated this segment. However, lately we have seen such deals coming from entities based out of UK, Australia, Ireland, Brazil, etc.
Cloud Becomes Critical
Cloud has been around for quite some time now. However, it has never been as critical as it is today. With many businesses going digital and opting cloud storage and computing, cybersecurity measures for cloud have overshadowed everything else. To add to this milieu Internet of Things has stepped up the ante. So, a lot of players are acquiring players who have focused heavily on developing solutions that secure cloud. Traditional security solutions and cloud security solutions are flourishing hand in hand.
