Market Synopsis

With the growing adoption of cloud-based services and automation, the capabilities of industrial and enterprise networks is increasing. However, it also creates certain risks and threats associated with the security of customer data and web and mobile applications. Security testing can be considered as a type of software testing which is used to identify susceptibilities in a system and network. This is done to ensure the security of data and assets from potential threats. Security testing can be broadly classified under four different heads: network security, system software security, client-side application security, and server-side application security.

The major factors contributing to the growth of security testing market are the increasing need for protection of customer data and web and mobile applications, increased adoption of cloud-based security solutions, and rising need for improved security due to increasing cyber-attacks. However, lack of awareness regarding cybersecurity and increased adoption of freeware security applications pose challenges for the market growth.
