Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Market: Introduction
Increasing trend of building automation, connected machines as well as remote supervision and control of traditional machinery and equipment have brought about convenience in access and use to various industries in the recent past. However, with high degree of connectivity, organizations are also facing some critical threat about security in regard to industrial control systems (ICS). Industrial control systems are highly prone to cyber-attacks and is, at present, among the top-targeted sectors globally. Malware infections and various cyber-attacks on and SCADA, DCS and PLC systems, among others can result transfer of invalid data and programming sent to controllers resulting into a heavy loss to the organization. Thus companies from various industries are investing significantly in Industrial control systems security solutions to defend the reliability and safety of their industrial control systems and plant operations. Some of the commonly used solutions are distributed denial of service, antivirus/malware, firewall, virtualization security, SCADA encryption, unified threat management and data loss prevention among others.
Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Market: Drivers and Restraints
Factors such as Increasing of growing threats and attacks and increase in industrial automation and virtualization are thereby driving the market for industrial control systems security. In addition to this, initiative taken by the government in various regions to adoption of smart grids technology as a step towards efficient use of energy is expected to further accelerated demand for industrial control systems security during the forecast period. On the other hand, lack of awareness of industrial control systems, as well as complexity in installation and upgradation of security system may act as a restraint for the industrial control systems security market.
