Market, By Type of Threat

Ransomware segment in the healthcare cybersecurity market was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2018 led by the 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 will witness 17% growth rate through 2025. 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.
