Cybersecurity refers to an array of technologies employed by firms and organizations for protecting devices, networks, and data from online attacks. The dependence on the internet and rise of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and online users has brought the need for toughened security measures to the forefront.

It is anticipated to exhibit 10.5% CAGR over the forecast period (2019-2025). The global cybersecurity market is expected to augment its size favorably due to a surge in online attacks across networks and applications across various end-use sectors.
