Market synopsis

With the adoption of cloud and IoT technology, use of the Internet has increased. Every enterprise today, government or commercial, relies on the Internet and computer networks to share the enterprise data. Also, with the increasing adoption of IoT, the number of web-connected devices increases where the majority of devices have little or no security features.

Botnets are networks of connected devices such as personal computers, smartphones, and laptop infected with malware which are remotely controlled by bot masters or bot headers. Botnets are a significant threat to networks. The main purpose of botnets is spreading cyber attacks in the form of spam messages, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and automated identity theft. Zeus, Droid Dream, and Tigerbot are some of the mobile bots which have carried out successful botnet attacks in mobile to mobile platforms

Botnet detection techniques are adopted by both large as well as small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as every enterprise aims to protect its confidential information from being stolen or destroyed from cyber attacks and frauds. BFSI industries primarily adopt botnet detection techniques as the cyber attackers are in constant wait for stealing customer data and accessing money. In the year 2017, White Ops Inc., a cybersecurity provider company detected about 40,000 banking Trojan botnets.

Furthermore, retail & e-commerce industries are also vulnerable to botnet attacks as majority of the transactions take place online. Cyber attackers keep a constant watch on the transactions and customer data to steal, skew and scrape it. If the botnet files are not detected and worked upon, customer satisfaction might get affected resulting in a staggering reduction in the revenue.

However, a major challenge faced by the botnet detection market is the  lack of awareness about the latest botnet detection techniques. Majority of the enterprises are still using traditional botnet techniques whereas the severity and sophistication of threats has been constantly increasing which raises the demand for equally complex detection systems.


The global botnet detection market is segmented into various segments on the basis of deployment, organization size, application, detection techniques, and vertical.
