Cybersecurity & IT Services – a rapidly growing and changing market
Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing and most robust segments of global IT expenditure.
It has quickly become a priority area for all CEOs and CTOs. Continual data breaches, phishing scams, ransomware attacks, and cyber espionages are fuelling IT security spend globally.
The covid-related explosion in remote working has not slowed the trend – quite the contrary.
There are ever-increasing levels of investment across the value chain as vendors, distributors, channel partners, and managed security service providers (MSSP/MDR) vie for market share and seek to consolidate in a fragmented market with a constant influx of new entrants. Technological developments, business model innovation (including the trend towards service-based and outcome-oriented solutions), customer requirements and value chain dynamics also keep evolving.
In parallel, as IoT expands there is increasing scrutiny over the security of connected objects. Hardware, software, and network solutions are being developed, with multiple approaches to securing IoT – an essential topic for Industry 4.0, supply chain, and logistics to name just a few.
AMR’s work is focused primarily on transaction support and growth strategy. Our work involves conducting commercial due diligence (DD), market DD and vendor commercial DD, and providing strategy support for vendors, channel partners and service providers.
