According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Software Defined Security Market is accounted for $8.44 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $41.90 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 30.6% during the forecast period. Software-defined security (SDS) is a model in which the information security is controlled. The functions of network security devices, such as firewalling, intrusion detection, access controls, and network segmentation are extracted from hardware devices to a software layer. All the management of the hardware devices are taken care by the software itself. For this purpose they usually separate the network into smaller segments.

FalconStor, a prominent US-based vendor that offers SDS in China through Huawei, reported that customers/enterprises across Asia, such as China, are one of the largest potential markets for IT services and are positive about shifting to new storage. The propensity to shift was mainly to meet challenges, like data protection, recovery, and integration of virtual and non-virtualized resources. The utilization of SDS on various platforms also encouraged integrability as an essential characteristic for consumer choice. In October 2021, NetApp introduced a Kubernetes-native data services integration to its Astro Datastore, bringing Kubernetes-native shared file services to customers looking to simplify the management of applications on Kubernetes. The vendor also expanded their relationship with the Google Cloud Platform with native support for NetApp Cloud Volume Services in the Google VMware Engine.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Rising consciousness of software defined security and its benefits


For the modern-day businesses and corporate world, software-defined network architecture and software-defined security solutions are comparatively newer and the world has much fewer benefactors at the moment. Through growing security dangers and increasing implementation of cloud and virtualization in small & medium enterprises, an increase in the adoption of software-defined networking and security frameworks is anticipated in the future which in turn is driving the market growth.

Restraint:

Rising concerns about security


Companies having private data traffic are observing a rising number of fears about network security as several cyber attackers are looking for advanced methods to gain invalid access to the networks. For companies with particularly confidential data traffic, the in-built security capabilities of these solutions may not be sufficient. In SD-WAN, security devices must be located at every remote place to secure the network from the targeted attacks.

Opportunity:

Growing applications of cloud and virtualization technologies in modern businesses


Small and medium enterprises are increasingly readily accepting cloud technology, and cloud-enabled enterprises advantage from the investment in terms of simplicity and potential. Larger businesses are becoming more comfortable using cloud-based mission-critical applications. This infrastructure is available as a private, public, community, or hybrid cloud. Business organizations of today have the opportunity to concentrate more on their business goals and priorities rather than the risk and expense of putting up expenses. This allows them to avoid all the challenges of varied systems, tools, and server management that were related to legacy systems. In addition, the scalability of cloud offerings has also attracted small businesses to the model. These cloud and virtual environments have security offerings from their providers. For additional security, businesses have started to invest in software-defined security solutions to safeguard their networks. This trend is predicted to bring opportunities for the market in the future.

Threat:

Configuration complexity & Latency


Reconfiguring an SDN network is not a simple task since it involves lots of expenses. Especially, implementing SDN protocols and controllers cannot be done by configuring each of them. The entire network needs to be reconfigured. Every device used on a network occupies a space on it. The speed of interaction between the devices and the network depends on the number of virtualized resources. If there is a need for more speed, more virtualized resources can be introduced. Now virtualizing resources could result in a significant amount of latency. These are a few factors that are threating market growth in the near future.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to have a positive impact on the growth of the global software-defined data center market. The exponential integration of big data was the primary driver of industry development. Researchers employed technologies such as big data and machine learning. Big data aided in the analysis of datasets and the identification of trends that aided in COVID-19 detection. This has become one of the major growth factors for the software-defined data center market during the global health crisis.

The Control Automation and Orchestration Solution segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Control Automation and Orchestration Solution segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period, owing to the increasing need for managing the security of complex networks with minimum time delay. Moreover, automation and orchestration allow for the provisioning and automated configuration of all of the individual resources that collectively comprise software-defined security.

The Cloud Service Providers segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The Cloud Service Providers segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to a diverse spectrum of enterprises adopting these solutions across all provinces. SDS abstracts security methods from the hardware layer to a software layer, resulting in a flexible and centralized security solution.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The companies in the province are willing to enhance their security posture by implementing advanced security solutions which would accelerate the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Additionally, the acceptance rate of these solutions is the highest in the United States. Factors such as the existence of many large enterprises, the rise in cases of cyber-attacks, and the growing number of hosted servers in the country are responsible for the market growth in this area.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth is accredited to the rapid developments of the digital and wireless network infrastructure in the region. The enterprise-widespread acceptance of cloud services followed by the increasing need for continuous wireless connectivity is driving the acceptance of software-defined security solutions. The rising demand to meet the evolving needs of networking infrastructure is supporting the market growth in the province. The fast adoption of SDN by service providers has been an important driver in the Asia-Pacific market.

Key players in the market:

Some of the key players profiled in the Software Defined Security Market include VMWare Inc. (Dell Inc.), Symantec, SANS Institute, Pure Storage Inc, Promise Technology Inc, Palo Alto Network, Oracle Corporation, Netapp Inc, Intel Corporation, IBM Corporation, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd, Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Genetec Inc, Fujitsu Limited, Fortinet, FalconStor Software Inc, TidalScale, Cisco Systems, Catbird.
 
Key Developments:

In April 2021: IBM Corp. launched container-native software-defined storage and announced its foray into the hyper-converged infrastructure market with its appliance. In addition, the business is overhauling its ESS 5000 subsystem with 10% more storage capacity and releasing a new ESS 3200 array with double the read speed of its predecessor..

In March 2021: Genetec Inc., launched Security Center 5.10, a new edition of its flagship unified security platform. This significant new update, among other things, allows more system components to function in the cloud, narrowing the gap between cloud and on-premises security systems.

In November 2021: TidalScale announced the launch of its software-defined server technology on IBM Cloud, which will allow clients to construct and deploy servers of nearly any capacity in minutes while addressing costs and long-term obligations. Customers may solve this ever-increasing data burden using TidalScale's software-defined server technology, which dynamically aggregates compute and memory resources across numerous lower-cost servers to provide in-memory processing capability on-demand.
