Industrial Cybersecurity Services: Opportunities Are Strong for Security Service Providers with OT Expertise

ARC Industrial/OT Cybersecurity Maturity ModelARC’s market size and forecast research on the Industrial Cybersecurity Services market shows strong growth and numerous opportunities over the next five years. The safety, environmental, and financial risks of an OT cyber compromise are simply too large for industrial companies to ignore. Yet most companies lack the people and expertise to manage their cybersecurity needs. This presents significant opportunities for companies that can help them assess, implement, and manage their cybersecurity needs. This also presents strong opportunities for automation suppliers and third-party managed security service providers (MSSPs) that understand industrial/OT environments.     

Industrial Cybersecurity Strategic Issues

The safety, environmental, and financial risks of an OT cyber compromise are simply too large for industrial companies to ignore. Operational changes are also creating new security challenges that must be addressed.  Lack of people and expertise will demand more use of third party services.

Following are some other factors that will impact growth in the industrial/OT cybersecurity endpoint protection solutions market. 

Ongoing Shortage of Cybersecurity Professionals  

Strong growth in this market shows that industrial organizations are already dedicated to filling critical cybersecurity resource gaps.  This will only grow in future years.      

Increased Concern about Sophisticated Attacks and Ransomware 

Cyber-attack surfaces have expanded significantly, and threats have become more sophisticated. Maintaining defenses has never been more important and challenging. The need for rapid detection and response has likewise grown as it has emerged as the primary defense against sophisticated attacks. Addressing these issues requires more cybersecurity personnel and expertise. Companies will increasingly see third party services as the most cost effective way to address these requirements.    

Increased Sophistication of Solutions Favor Third Party Support 

Cybersecurity technology is becoming more granular and sophisticated. The expertise and time required to configure and maintain these solutions is growing accordingly. This, combined with the reluctance of most industrial companies to invest in additional staff, should increase the demand for third-party support of security maintenance activities such as vulnerability management and monitoring and response.   

Increasing Influence of CISOs and CIOs in OT Cybersecurity 

Convergence of IT and OT cybersecurity strategies is expanding the role of IT leaders in OT cybersecurity decisions and accelerating efforts to rationalize service support strategies.  Sales efforts focused on plant and corporate engineering staffs will no longer suffice.  To survive, industrial/OT cybersecurity service providers will need to develop strong relationships with corporate IT leaders and leading IT cybersecurity solution providers.

Evolution of Industrial Cybersecurity Services Market 

The industrial/OT cybersecurity services market is evolving. More control system integrators are offering cybersecurity services. Large IT service providers are partnering with or acquiring smaller ICS service providers to establish a foothold in the OT security market and satisfy requests for integrated IT-OT support from large industrial clients. ARC expects that these kinds of developments will restructure market roles and drive more use of industrial/OT cybersecurity services.
