Healthcare Cybersecurity Market, By Type of Threat

Ransomware segment was valued over USD 1.5 billion in 2018. Considerable revenue size of ransomware segment can be attributed to increasing cases of data breach caused by utilizing this malicious software. Ransomware is highly preferred by hackers as it encrypts valuable data and provides access to unauthorized users. Also, once the system in hospital is hacked by ransomware, access to patient data is denied that will lead to complications. Hence, to protect data, adoption of cybersecurity solutions is increasing.

Malware & spyware segment is expected to witness over 17% growth throughout the analysis timeframe. Incidences of data leaks from research institutes and healthcare facilities are escalating since past few years. For instance, according to University of Washington, in 2018, around 974,000 of its data files were hacked by a malware and data was exposed for about three weeks. This scenario proves beneficial for segment growth as it increases the demand for anti-malware software for data protection.

Healthcare Cybersecurity Market, By Security Measures

Application security segment is projected to grow at 19.3% from 2019 to 2025.
