THE PROSPECT

The Africa cyber security market size is anticipated to witness strong growth over the coming years on account of rapid growth in internet users combined with growing dependability on e-governance, IoT, commercial services and social networking.

This is also bolstered by an increasing number of cyber crime within the country that have unfortunately, been seeing a surge. This has pushed the government to support sectors such as telecoms, retail, finance and health to help amplify the demand for enterprise cyber security products, services and consumer software in the country.

COMBINED EFFORTS

Enterprises and governments are leading an increased effort to strength-en the internet infrastructure and improve the solutions and aid provided by the software industry in a bid to protect its citizens from cyber attacks in the future.

Apart from this, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet subscriptions, and data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased spending pattern on security forums are boosting the demand for cyber security solutions in the nation.
