AI in Cybersecurity to See 31% CAGR from 2019–2025

New data gleaned from Research N Reports finds that the AI in cyber security market is expected to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31 percent from 2019 to 2025, according to Market Research News. An excerpt from the report coverage on Market Research News reads:

The Artificial Intelligence (Ai) In Cyber Security market for cloud deployment is growing at a high rate. Several businesses have already moved part of their operations to the cloud, which has led security vendors to develop cloud-based solutions as the data to be protected is on the cloud. Migrating to the cloud has benefits such as enhanced flexibility, control, and scalability. Cloud deployment significantly reduces the capital investment that is required to implement Cybersecurity solutions; this is one of the major reasons for the increased demand for cloud-based Cybersecurity from most enterprises.
