Continued growth in global information security market

   The information security technology market is forecast to grow in the next few years. By 2023, the worldwide spending in information security is expected to be double that of 2016. Information security refers to the practice of managing access to information, whether that is securing information from unauthorized access, or verifying the identity of those who claim to have authority to access information. The rise of new markets such as the Internet of Things (IoT) is shaping securing trends, creating a shift towards managed security services and other segments of IT security. Worldwide revenue from managed security services is forecast to more than triple in 2022 compared to that of 2015.
