Dr. Chase Cunningham, a leading cybersecurity expert and originator of Forrester’s ZTX Zero Trust Extended Framework, shares the latest cybersecurity and Zero Trust news that executives need to know.
Weekly Summary (6/14/2021): According to some new research, the Zero Trust Security Market is estimated to reach USD 60.25 billion by 2027 and is valued at roughly USD 19.6 billion in 2020. This market has an amazing growth rate as well and is anticipated to grow at more than 17.4% over the forecast period 2021-2027. That growth rate is statistically larger than the cybersecurity market at roughly 10% over the same timeframe. Why is this significant? It’s the first time that we have had actual metrics that show Zero Trust is taking over a significant portion of the market and is set to eclipse that growth curve. This is a good thing as we need valid and quantifiable data points to help drive market adoption in the US and push the strategy as it grows internationally. All of the ransomware attacks and the Biden EO are only helping to accelerate Zero Trust’s meteoric adoption and growth.
