Market Snapshot

Operational technology (OT) security is used in various industries to measure, control, and view processes. They are defined as solutions that can detect or cause a change in asset-centric enterprises by direct monitoring and controlling physical devices, processes, and events. The security services related to these systems help companies assess, design, and manage security strategies and activities for the protection of OT systems. These systems are interconnected infrastructures and networks that control and manage the industrial processes. OT comprises systems of electronic components that can control the physical operations of the machines, which transmit sensor data to the controller for monitoring and automated operational functions. Factors such as the increase in cyber-attacks and network security threats, smart operational technologies, and convergence of IT and OT ecosystems are expected to boost the growth of the market. However, budget constraints affecting innovation and an increase in cyber threats due to the traditional OT security systems could restrain the market growth to a certain extent. The increasing investments to adopt the industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions are expected to offer promising opportunities for the market players.
