The growing cases of cyber-attacks, which have impacted every industry is one of the most insightful factors of the firewall as a service market. Cyber-attacks have become a global concern, leading to a flood of technological developments in the security sector. Increasing initiatives by regulatory authorities to increase the safety of the database of end-users is a key factor which drives the firewall as a service market. Firewall services help businesses in protecting end-to-end database and web application. The growth of NGFW (next-generation firewall) has completely changed the scene with features such as application programming interface (API), deep packet inspection (DPI), intrusion prevention system (IPS), and filtering, developing the opportunities in the firewall market. In recent years, firewall devices have gained an element of importance in network security, based on the progress in product design in terms of performance, sophistication, and functionality. Key trends highlighting the competitive scenario of this market are the rising inclination of firewall suppliers of signing strategic partnerships with cloud based organizations to increase their customer base. Furthermore, the recent cyber-attacks combined with growing number of government initiatives worldwide to improve customers’ knowledge about security problems are providing a key push to the firewall as a service market.

The rising number of internet users, growing banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector, and increase in research & development investments for security infrastructure are the key factors driving the firewall as a service market. Internet has become so important that as it grows, there is an ongoing increase and evolution in cyber security risks. Cyber security threats are worsened by the interdependent and interconnected architecture of recent computing environments. Hence, firewalls help businesses by protecting them from cyber-attacks which has led to growth of the firewall as a service market. Firewalls are used to restrict illegal data transmission from the network. Even though this can protect the system from interruption, it can also create significant difficulties for employees.
