According to a report by MarketsandMarkets, the Middle East cybersecurity market size is expected to grow to USD 22.14 Billion by 2022. IT security is assuming a strategic role across the business community as business leaders give IT security a larger portion (24 percent) of their overall IT budgets to minimise the risk of being exposed to a cybersecurity risk.
Amir Kanaan, Managing Director for META region at Kaspersky Lab, said, “Cybersecurity market is changing rapidly as threats and attacks become more targeted and complex. Reflecting this dynamic nature of the cybersecurity landscape and the continuous threats to businesses, Kaspersky Lab expects investment in strengthening the IT security infrastructure to increase by 18 percent for both enterprise and small business for the next three years”
