Limited number of cybersecurity and AI professionals, and lack of interoperability with existing information systems pose major challenges to the AI in cybersecurity market.

Software segment to hold largest share of AI in cybersecurity market during forecast period

Software holds a major share of the overall AI in cybersecurity market owing to developments in AI software and related software development kits. AI systems require different types of software, including application program interfaces, such as language, speech, vision, and sensor data, along with machine learning algorithms, to realize the applications for cybersecurity.

The software platforms and solutions are available at higher costs as there are only a limited number of experts that develop machine learning algorithms. Companies such as Darktrace (UK), Cylance (US), Securonix (US), and IBM (US) are among the frontrunners in the development of software for the AI in cybersecurity market.

Among all applications, the market for risk and compliance to hold largest share of AI in cybersecurity market from 2019 to 2026

Risk and compliance is the major application in the AI in cybersecurity market and is, therefore, expected to hold large market share during the forecast period. With the latest development of AI-enabled risk and compliance management solution, along with its higher adoption rate among end users, the deployment of this solution has become an integral part of companies to manage their performance effectively. It allows organizations to achieve their desired goals by automating workflows while complying with policy guidelines and government regulations, thereby reducing financial risks as well as safeguarding the company’s brand image.
