A Surge of M&A in the Global Cybersecurity Market

With the rise of high-profile cybercrimes and targeted attacks worldwide, the global cybersecurity market has seen robust growth across all sectors. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that global cybersecurity spending will exceed $1 trillion cumulatively over the next five years, translating into higher growth for the IT products and services market — a segment that Gartner projects will grow at a rate of 7 percent to reach $86.4 billion by this year and $108 billion by 2020.
