As digital threats and cybercrimes are rising in number, security needs to be enhanced. Security now needs constant supervision and adaption to the current market scenarios. With the rise in connected enterprises, devices and applications, the businesses are becoming more vulnerable as they are connected to a mass of independent endpoints. AI in security provides an enticing proposition with its proactive threat mitigation capabilities which is needed for constant supervision and adaptation to the multifaceted security vulnerabilities faced by modern digitalized economy.
With the increasing use of sophisticated techniques for cybercrimes, there is a rising need for AI based techniques to counter the threats from malicious software bots. AI can be used to fight against various cyber threats including spear phishing, watering hole attack, webshell, ransomware, DDoS attacks, and remote exploitation, by identifying and preventing them from proliferating into the systems. AI based security systems can analyze even those threats which have not occurred in the past unlike traditional based security systems.
According to Infoholic Research, the AI in security market is expected to reach $11.95 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 34.9% during the forecast period. The market is expected to witness a surge in the next few years, factors such as growing need of technologies like AI, machine learning and deep learning to tackle the evolving threats and advanced persistent threats which remains undetected within the network which steal the data, increasing number of security breaches and increasing BYOD trends has further pushed the growth of AI in security market during the forecast period.
