Industrial/OT Cybersecurity Endpoint Protection Solutions

This report provides granular information about the industrial/OT endpoint protection solutions market.  This includes market size and growth forecasts for industrial/OT endpoint protection solutions across different global regions, industrial sectors, and product categories.  The report also identifies and positions key suppliers across various market segments.  

Industrial/OT Endpoint Protection: An Essential Element in Every Security Strategy

Endpoint protection is a foundational element in every industrial/OT cybersecurity strategy.  Despite the known limitations, most industrial companies still use anti-malware software wherever possible in their control systems.  Some also use application whitelisting solutions to protect assets.  Automation companies are likewise applying these security products in their control systems.

ARC Industrial/OT Cybersecurity Maturity ModelEndpoint protection solutions used in industrial/OT systems are generally the same as those used for corporate IT.  However, there are constraints on the products that are applicable for use in industrial control systems because users have unique challenges in maintaining malware signatures, etc.  These differences impact the features industrial users want and the value they place on the new developments occurring in the endpoint protection market.

Suppliers in this market provide industrial/OT endpoint security solutions to automation companies, system integrators, and end users.  These products are used to secure new and previously installed automation and SCADA systems. Market success requires an understanding of industrial control system needs.

The industrial/OT Endpoint Protection Solutions market experienced strong growth in recent years.  Increased awareness of cyber risks, governmental actions, and more comprehensive regulations accelerated investments in basic cybersecurity defenses.  Sophisticated attacks and ransomware drove demand for more advanced cybersecurity products and services.  

ARC research shows that the future also offers good growth opportunities for suppliers that understand the challenges and the significant changes occurring in the overall industrial cybersecurity market.  This report provides the insight suppliers need to navigate this dynamic landscape.

Industrial/OT Endpoint Protection Market Strategic Issues 

Safety, environmental, and financial risks will continue to drive use of endpoint protection solutions in industrial/OT cybersecurity programs.  The risks of compromises are simply too large for industrial companies to ignore. Operational changes are also creating new security challenges that must be addressed.  

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

Digital Transformation Initiatives

Digital transformation initiatives create new cyber risks with cloud connections, expanded use of new sensors, and increases in mobile devices. While ARC’s definition of the industrial/OT endpoint protection market doesn’t include protection of cloud, mobile, or IoT devices, all of these developments will increase concern about protecting PC devices within industrial/OT systems from compromise.

Industrial/OT Endpoint Protection Solutions Are Mandatory for Every Cybersecurity Program

Industrial/OT endpoint protection solutions are considered foundational elements in cybersecurity standards and guidelines. As a result, the availability of capital will have less impact on this market than for more advanced cybersecurity products.

Sales of New Industrial Control Systems

Sales of new industrial control systems drive a major portion of the sales of industrial/OT endpoint protection solutions. ARC’s projections for the industrial/OT endpoint protection solutions market reflect ARC’s forecasts for industrial control system markets. Anti-malware sales are driven by all control system sales, while sales of application whitelisting products depend on industry and regional requirements.

Investments in Industrial/OT Cybersecurity Technology 

Investments in industrial/OT cybersecurity technology for legacy systems is another major market driver, but subject to different considerations. Depending on industry and region, managers may consider security discretionary and postpone these investments. ARC’s growth projections for the industrial/OT endpoint security solutions market reflect this effect through delays in the timing of sales in different regions and industries.
