By service type, Incident response segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Based on service types, the SOCaaS market is segmented into two categories such as vulnerability assessment & threat detection and incident response. These services assist organizations in protecting systems from exploitation and data losses. A major trend influencing the SOCaaS market is the complexity of the advanced technologies. The incident response service refers to a predefined and an organized set of procedures and approaches that need to be followed in the event of cyberattacks, which are also known as cyber incidents, security incidents, and Information Technology (IT) incidents. The service is a systematic process to manage and address complex cyberattacks post-detection, and help enterprises recover IT damages and data losses. It helps organizations handle and manage not only the aftermath of attacks but also define a clear set of protocols that need to be followed before and during security incidents.

By organization size, SMEs to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Based on organization size, the SOCaaS market is segmented into large enterprises and SMEs. This segmentation has been done based on the number of employees working in organizations. Small businesses are expected to witness faster growth in the adoption of SOCaaS. SMEs are defined as organizations with an employee strength ranging from 1 to 1,000. In the current scenario, SMEs face different IT challenges due to their small staff and tight financial budget. Managed services are becoming necessary for SMEs due to high-security risks as they do not follow any formal security policies. In the case of SMEs, cybersecurity comes into consideration after a cyberattack has happened. The increasing demand for security from SMEs for improving their productivity and pooling of knowledge base has triggered vendors to provide services at a lower cost. SOCaaS is the best fit for SMEs as cost-effectiveness is the biggest advantage. The adoption and acceptance of SOCaaS by SMEs will help expand their customer base and enhance business efficiency.

In April 2022, Thales opened a new Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) in Morocco to provide real-time protection against cyberattacks across the African continent as a whole.

According to MnM’s market evaluation framework, most companies opt for inorganic growth strategies to maintain their position in the market. The number of deals increased by around 50-60% relatively in the period of 2020-2021. These deals collectively include partnerships, acquisitions, collaborations, and alliances. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a sudden decline in product launches and business expansion activities. However, from 2021 onward, companies are expected to follow organic growth strategies to provide SOCaaS solutions and services to end users, which, on the other hand, would help companies in increasing their market revenue.
