This industry research report identifies IBM, McAfee, and Symantec as the key vendors in the industrial control systems security software market in North America. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by different products such as DCS, PLC, and SCADA.

Overview of the industrial control systems security software market in North America

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the industrial control systems (ICS) security software market in North America will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of more than 5% by 2020. Authentication systems are used to gain access to a particular system and are used different access control mechanisms. However, the implementation of authentication systems like stand-alone applications was difficult as these applications required multiple passwords and also faced security issues as they were open to the public. Moreover, the introduction of devices such as personal digital assistants (PDA), wireless computers, and smartphones has significantly weakened password authentication and led to the development of multifactor authentication that uses two or more different authentication methods to authorize access. Since these solutions use biometrics, PINs, and phone-based authentication solutions, multifactor authentication systems are considered to be one of the most secure authentication systems and the coming years will witness a rapid shift toward their adoption.

The emergence of deception technology will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the market in the next four years. Deception technology enhances network and data protection of an organization and also prevents black-hole malware botnets, threat actors, and suspicious connections. As a result, it will soon find significance in enterprise threat defense. Due to its efficiency, few federal investigating organizations have already started using deception techniques to intercept and disrupt command-and-control communications during botnet takedowns.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Due to the presence of several multinational vendors and regional players, the market appears to be fragmented. All vendors compete to gain a significant share of the market and as a result, the market is highly competitive. Large vendors will acquire small vendors to expand their product portfolio and increase their share of the market. To survive the highly competitive environment and establish their presence, vendors have the need to distinguish their product and service offerings through a unique selling proposition. The need to introduce innovative industrial control systems (ICS) security services in the market will induce vendors to develop new technologies and also stay updated with the emerging technologies that can affect their product lines.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • IBM
  • McAfee
  • Symantec

The other prominent vendors in the market are Boeing, Booz Allen Hamilton, Brocade Communications Systems, Citrix Systems, Computer Science, EMC, F-Secure, HP, Kaspersky Lab, L-3 Communications, Microsoft, Northrop Grumman, Radware, SAIC, Trend Micro, and Websense.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the industrial control systems security software market in North America

  • DCS (distribution control system)
  • PLC (programmable logic controller)
  • SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition)

According to this market study, the DCS market segment will dominate the ICS security software market throughout the forecast period and will account for about 43% of the total shares of the market by 2020. DCS systems are used to control and supervise the industrial architecture and consists of a control architecture that offers a higher level of control over multiple integrated sub-systems and    is mainly used in process-based industries to manage and maintain operations.
