The North America security testing market is estimated to increase in the coming years because of the increased number of cyber-attacks on the government as well as private companies’ networks. As recent as August of 2014, some companies on the Wall Street were targeted by a major cyber-attack. Large amounts of sensitive data were stolen from companies like JP Morgan and Chase. The number of cyber-attacks that the private companies and the governments in North America thwart every month is increasing. Hackers find loop holes in the software that have been installed in the system and take out sensitive information of the network. This is where the security systems help companies and governments in securing the software used on the network. The hacks on the networks cause massive disruption in the activities of a company or compromise customer information.
The increasing number of cyber security attacks and hacks into sensitive networks from applications is exposing the vulnerabilities and threats caused by applications which are not evident during their development and deployment. These hacks can cause severe disruptions to the business or compromise sensitive customer or internal information. This has caused governments across the world to introduce stringent regulations to ensure companies follow guidelines and ensure security of sensitive data.
Security Testing will ensure that the systems and applications on a network if it is secure or not. The evolution of Dynamic application security testing beyond the security testing of back-end web applications has opened up new avenues for the security testing market. They now have the capabilities to test next generation applications. The ability of some of the testing providers to enable interaction between their static and dynamic security testing techniques provides more detailed information which is quite useful in QA testing in order to provide more meaningful results to developers.
The emergence of HTML5 which requires higher levels of maturity and adoption is driving innovation in DAST. The emergence of cloud computing along with the ability to offer Testing as a Service (TaaS) with flexibility to test sensitive applications on premises and outsourcing others has enabled firms across various sectors like BFSI, Government and Public Sector, Healthcare and Retail to include testing in their operations.
Detailed market shares are given and forecasts for the next five years are estimated. The major companies in the market like Accenture, Cisco, HP and IBM among others are studied and their strategies are analyzed. Recent developments and their impact on the market are analyzed.
The types of security testing such as network security, system software security, client-side application security, and server-side application security have been explained in detail in the report. The security testing market is also explained on the basis of type of testing tools such as application testing tool, code review tool, penetration tool, vulnerability assessment, and others.
The potential drivers of the security testing market are supportive government regulations and the increasing need for safety from security threats.
The security testing market growth would require building up ample amount of awareness among its potential buyers, and so, this initiative might require extra efforts.
