The overall SCM market in ASEAN recorded a moderate growth of 6.3% YoY due to the slowdown of the email security segment. The market was greatly offset by the significant growth of the Web security segment, growing by 13.6%. Email security has been somewhat saturated, as many organizations, particularly small and medium organizations were either seeing email security as commodities on an integrated security appliance or shifting to cloud-based and managed email security services. On the other hand, the Web security segment grew significantly by 13.6% in 2016. Web/online content management has drawn increasing attention among governments in the region over the last few years. Web filtering is no longer just an organization’s security issue but also an important part of the national cybersecurity policy of a country.
In addition to the market growth analysis, the study highlights the key driving forces for the SCM market. Some key drivers include the continual surge of new advanced threats and attacks through email and Web vectors and better awareness of the threat landscape. The surge of IoT devices and the increasing adoption of mobility in the workforce require organizations to tighten their control of online content to enhance productivity and prevent threats. Strict compliance requirements drive investments in security to prevent litigation and legal liabilities and in turn drive adoption of cybersecurity.
