Latest Guardian Analytics News

The Global Dark Web Intelligence Market size is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 22.3% CAGR during the forecast period

Oct 25, 2022

Lyon, FRANCE New York, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Dark Web Intelligence Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Industry Vertical, By Component, By Deployment Model, By Enterprise Size, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028" - This area of the internet is devoted to confidentiality and anonymity, thereby making it a perfect place for cybercriminals to gather resources and information and market their services. Dark web intelligence is incredibly important because it gives an unfiltered perspective of the state of cybercrime today and the patterns in hacks. Organizations enhance their defense capabilities by utilizing timely, relevant, and actionable information by adopting dark web tracking software, which enables them to incorporate dark web intelligence with their cyber security management process. Dark Web intelligence is employed to prevent fraud and has shown to significantly lower losses. The intelligence generally includes three collections of data feeds that have been carefully selected from the Deep Web and Dark Web, malware networks, botnets, and other technology platforms used by fraudsters and cybercriminals to commit financial crimes. There have been several cyber-attacks over the years on both individual computers and the systems of huge corporations. COVID-19 Impact Analysis The lockdown imposed by many governments has positively benefited the implementation of dark web intelligence. Companies are concentrating on developing technologies like automation, AI-powered solutions, and computing technology since COVID-19 instances have decreased. Additionally, as cybercrimes like ransomware attacks, data hacking, and financial fraud proliferate across sectors like BFSI, healthcare, and government, there is a growing need for dark web intelligence solutions to conduct operations in a secure and safe manner. Market Growth Factors Growing Need For Cyber-Security In Multitude Of Industries Rising public awareness of various cybercrime kinds and an increase in fraud cases involving illicit money transfers and data alterations in big enterprises have had a substantial negative impact on the market’s expansion. Dark web intelligence emphasizes any unidentified dangers and orchestrates cyber risk assessment for prevention methods. It is usually conducted to effectively detect, examine, and decrease risk to the security firewall. Increasing Intelligence Use In Counter Terrorism The brainwashing of children to carry out terrorist activities has been growing which led to United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) carrying out a full-fledged assessment on countering these activities. These methods have led to the identification of six, occasionally related categories: fundraising, training, planning, execution, and cyberattacks. Propaganda includes recruiting, radicalization, and instigation of terrorism. Market Restraining Factors High Cost Of Dark Web Intelligence Technology A small business or startup has to invest millions of dollars in cybersecurity, which consists of apps for password management, antivirus, firewalls, spam filters, data backup, and data encryption. Similar to how some dark web intelligence services require particular hardware to be installed, this raises the deployment cost of cybersecurity and cyber risk assessment. To control code in real-time, contemporary cyber threat surveillance solutions also require specific IT knowledge. Component Outlook Based on component, the dark web intelligence market is categorized into solution and services. The services segment garnered a significant revenue share in the dark web intelligence market in 2021. The segment’s growth will expand as a result of factors like rising business competition, cybercrime, threat, legislation, user needs, and project risks. These factors have increased the cyber security threats for many companies, and most of the time the in-house security teams cannot even infer the threat. Deployment Model Outlook On the basis of deployment model, the dark web intelligence market is divided into on-premise and cloud. The on-premise segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the dark web intelligence market in 2021. The growth is explained by the many benefits that the on-premise implementation provides, including a high degree of information protection and safety. Because on-premise deployment models have higher data security and fewer data breaches than cloud-based deployment models, businesses prefer them, which fuels demand in both the public and private sectors. Enterprise Size Outlook Based on enterprise size, the dark web intelligence market is bifurcated into large enterprises and SMEs. The SMEs segment recorded a significant revenue share in the dark web intelligence market in 2021. The use of dark web intelligence is anticipated to grow as small and medium-sized businesses looking to maximize their operational efficiency. Through the pandemic, SMEs also realized the immediate need for a cyber-security mechanism as more and more of their employees were working from home, posing them as a comfortable target for data breaches. Industry Vertical Outlook On the basis of industry vertical, the dark web intelligence market is classified into BFSI, healthcare, government, IT and telecom, Manufacturing, and others. The IT and Telecom segment witnessed a substantial revenue share in the dark web intelligence market in 2021. The pandemic is driving the IT and telecom industries toward digitalization and technological efforts, which is predicted to present attractive growth prospects for dark web intelligence. Regional Outlook Based on the region, the dark web intelligence market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA. The North American region garnered the largest revenue share in the dark web intelligence market in 2021. This is attributable to a surge in the use of dark web intelligence in the BFSI, healthcare, government, and other areas to protect data from breaches and enhance business processes and consumer satisfaction.
