    Technologists, security analysts, and risk managers commit themselves daily in measures and strategies that are required to obliterate cyber threats and shield the IT infrastructure from potential cyber attacks. The digital transformation of the global business model has drawn a compelling impact over the type of services they provide to the customer, but at the same time has accelerated the apprehension over the increasing cyber threats. In the global scenario, the data breach numbers have been skyrocketing and pushing enterprises to renew their cyber security protection across numerous business dimensions. The enterprise spending on cyber security products and services in India is estimated at INR 11,500 crore during 2018, which is an increase of 12.5 percent from 2017. The Indian government has put regulations at desk to mandate deployment of IT security for data, and is anticipated to ascend the demand of cyber security across industry verticals. India’s cyber security market for product and services are estimated to project a growth of USD 35 billion by 2025. Indian business ecosystem has been witnessing the rapid adoption of cloud and IoT technologies parallel to the emerging networking trends like Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization. This is making enterprises more to worry about the complexities pertaining in the data security, IT and network infrastructure, and security regulation and compliance. Some of the key enterprise security product segments constitute integrated risk management software which is currently exhibiting a growth rate of 26.6 percent, data security with 12.4 percent, infrastructure protection with 11.7 percent, identity and access management having 10.9 percent, and network security equipment with 10.3 percent. The demand for organizations to stay alert, understand the risk profile, and remain proactive with the defence has received greater attention.
