Software Defined Security Market Segmented By Software Platform, Services Component in Large Enterprise, Small & Medium Enterprise in Network Monitoring, Intrusion Detection, Firewall Control, Content Filtering and Malware Control


Software defined security is a kind of security model in which the information security in a computing environment is managed and controlled by a security software. Most of the security controls like detection of intrusions, segmentation of network and access control are automated and they are also monitored through security software. Software defined security is most of the time used in IT environments that use services of the cloud. Hence, every time a new device accesses the cloud environment, it is automatically covered and controlled by the software defined security protocol.

Thus, the security system of the cloud is thoroughly automated and this results in less intervention from humans and reduces the scope for any unwanted activity. Software defined security systems are cost effective and simple as compared to conventional security models. With the increasing adoption of the cloud services and infrastructure, the market for software defined security is witnessing a healthy growth.  

According to the assessment of Persistence Market Research, the global software defined security market is forecasted to reach a figure of about US$ 3,800 Mn in 2022 and is poised to exhibit a robust CAGR in the period of assessment.
