An Industrial Control System (ICS) is a generic term used to describe the integration of hardware and software into a network connection to support critical infrastructure. Industrial control systems are mainly used in distributed industries such as electricity, water, oil, gas and communications. Several intelligent security solutions enable vendors to consolidate, collect and analyze networks through Scenario Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks and data generated from grids.
The increase in cyber attacks and network security threats is a major driver of growth in the global industrial control system security market. In addition, significant investments in smart technology and government support for ICS security are some of the factors driving the growth of the global industrial control system security market during the forecast period.
However, the high cost and presence of legacy ICS, which is more vulnerable to cyber attacks, hinders the growth of the global industrial control system security market during the forecast period. Data confidentiality and scalability are also some of the factors that inhibit the growth of the global industrial control system security market during the forecast period.
The global industrial control system security market has been categorized by solution, service, security type, industry sector and region.
