 FireEye: Reaping the Benefits of Preventative Cyber Protection

Top 10 Digital Forensics Solution Providers - 2018

In the current state that the world is, cybercrimes are a dime a dozen, with new attacks coming to light every other day. Digital forensics looks at both the recovery of lost data as well as the actual investigation of the issues from the data that is found on digital devices. Several emerging digital forensics solution providers use highly sophisticated tools to track the origins of cyber attacks, with the ultimate aim of tracking the attack as it takes place or better still, preventing the attack from taking place at all.

Based on the component, type, deployment, and application, the global digital forensics market has been segmented. The type segment is further classified as computer forensics, network forensics, forensics for mobile devices and forensics for the cloud. However, due to the increasing deployment of mobile devices and the increasing popularity of the m-commerce market, the mobile device forensics sub-segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market.

In order to satisfy the demand for awareness and understanding of digital forensics, the governments organize programs that support digital forensics education worldwide. For instance, the University of Illinois in Urbana has taken the initiative to train its students in digital forensics and is expected to contribute to the growing demand for experts in this field.

One of the main factors driving the growth of the digital forensics market is the high adoption of card-based payments. With more companies migrating to the cloud every day, it only further adds to the mounting risks. Digital Forensics is the need of the hour, and with the growing use of smartphones and BYOD policies in organizations, there will be a bigger role for digital forensics to play in the coming years. As a result, in the last few years, the number of digital forensics solution companies has increased owing to the rapid increase in the number of devices being used. Many verticals have also begun to adopt Digital Forensics services as they have begun to see the benefits of the solutions.
