Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection Market Synopsis:


The advanced persistent threat (APT) protection market size is expected to register a CAGR of 18.2% during the forecast period and reach the market size of USD 9.6 billion in 2026.

The advanced persistent threats are multi-staged network attacks with multiple attacking methods. These stages include hacking the targetted organization's network, bypassing detection infrastructure, designing a plan of attack, mapping out the location to company data that is easily accessible, collecting sensitive data, and exfiltrating those collected data pieces. Attackers plan such attacks to gain unauthorized access to a system or the whole network without detecting its presence in the host domain for an unspecified time and may largely hamper the organization due to its prolonged access to the resources.


Carrying out these cyberattacks needs much more resources than attacking a standard web application attack. These include highly experienced unethical hackers backed with strong financial support. Additionally, the unethical hackers are sometimes funded by the governing organizations that utilize APT as their cyber weapon. Furthermore, the advanced persistent threat protection requires a multi-dimensional method that combines network administrators, security providers, and individual users in traffic monitoring, application & domain whitelisting, access control, bad bot protection, and web application firewall. The strategy adopted by APT protection players includes a web application firewall, backdoor protection, two-factor authentication, and DDoS protection.
Factors such as the increase in cybersecurity breaches, rise in digital transformation across industries, and stringent compliance standards drive the market growth. However, some of the factors that hamper this market growth include the high cost of implementation and lack of awareness among enterprises. Rapid developments in the threat protection and intelligence platforms and demand for cloud-based cybersecurity solutions are opening doors for future growth.
