Increasing focus on cybersecurity as a key business imperative and not just as a support function is expected to further drive the market with a higher wallet share for security policies and infrastructure.

Network security to secure major wallet share of the cybersecurity market during the forecast period

Organizations are facing an increase in attacks on corporate emails, with attackers posing as legitimate agencies, trying to trick people into sharing their account access credentials or opening malicious email attachments. A major factor in the rise of these scams is fake COVID-19 websites, which may promise a cure or treatment in exchange for personal information.

The security company, RiskIQ, has tracked COVID-19 keywords to determine that over 300,000 suspicious COVID-19 websites have been created between March 9th and March 23rd. These malicious websites can potentially infect endpoint devices with malware. This could be detrimental for businesses when such devices connect to enterprise networks, especially with employees working remotely from their homes. Hence, a well-bound combination of network firewalls, email security, and best practices among the workforce is essential to avoid compromising the enterprise networks.

Manufacturing vertical to see less growth during the forecast period in the cybersecurity market

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to expand, manufacturers would likely face challenges on numerous fronts. Manufacturing companies would be looking for immediate measures to keep their workforces safe and their businesses solvent. Manufacturers would also need to look beyond their economic viability. As the COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, manufacturers would likely face continued downward pressure on demand, production, and revenues. They would also face cash-flow liquidity challenges and difficulties in managing debt obligations.

China is the manufacturing hub for almost all raw material requirements across the globe; the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global economy and disrupted supply chains. The impact would be felt across a range of industries dependent on the supply of inputs from China, including electrical components, non-electric machinery and machine tools, metallic and non-metallic products, organic and inorganic chemicals, and pharmaceutical ingredients. This pandemic is already facing various challenges to industrial manufacturers, especially those that depend on workers whose jobs cannot be carried out remotely

Microsoft donated USD one million to Puget Sound’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Microsoft is working with various healthcare organizations to safeguard them from evolving ransomware threats during the COVID-19 crisis. The company has launched the Healthcare Bot service. Microsoft continues to work with its customers, partners, and the research community to keep track of human-operated ransomware and other cyber threats, which the attackers are using to take advantage of this ongoing pandemic situation. The healthcare bot service by Microsoft helps screen people to find out for any potential infection and provide medical care for the same. This also fields one million messages to the members about the pandemic. This, in turn, would minimize the spread of the infection and save hospital infrastructure as well.
