Threat Intelligence Market by Growth Projection, Demand Analysis and Trend Insights to 2025

The threat intelligence market growth is attributed to the growing number of connected devices and rising incidents of cyber-attacks such as zero-day exploit, malware, DDoS attacks, and advanced persistent threats. For instance, in 2017, the federal civilian agencies in the U.S. reported over 35,277 cybersecurity incidents, which included web-based attacks, phishing attacks, and loss or threat of computing equipment. These attacks resulted in huge financial losses and adversely impacted organizations' IT infrastructure.

Various favorable government-led initiatives worldwide to boost cybersecurity will fuel threat intelligence market growth. Increased adoption of BYOD and IoT has also given rise to intrusions and attacks, exposing business-critical information. It is estimated that in 2017, Telnet and HTTP were the most targeted IoT services. Rising incidents of attacks facilitate the adoption of threat intelligence platforms, which gather massive amounts of threat data, perform analysis, and provide actionable insights in the form of feeds and alerts.
