The global IT security software industry is a growing market. In 2018, global annual revenues from security software reached 36.3 billion U.S. dollars, representing a significant segment in the overall information security market, which itself achieved revenues of 114.15 billion U.S. dollars in 2017. Major companies in the security software industry include McAfee, Symantec, and IBM, all of whom recorded multi-billion dollar revenues in that year. Among the biggest names of the antivirus or anti-malware application market are Symantec Corporation and McAfee Inc, which held a combined market share of 26 percent at the end of 2019.
The increase in popularity of cloud computing has also led to the development of the cloud security software market. Cloud computing involves large groups of remote servers which are networked to allow the sharing of data and resources. According to Statista's IT Market Model, the global cloud security services market is forecasted to grow to 9.3 billion U.S. dollars in 2021.
