Europe Patch and Remediation Software Market Outlook
In Europe there have been a number of high profile government initiatives to spur the digital health system. According to UK's National Health Service (NHS), the usage of digital healthcare services soared in 2020, according to data compiled by NHS Digital.
The healthcare industry has become one of the most targeted sectors for cyber-attacks, due to increasing usage of healthcare related software and applications. These software and application store confidential and personal information of patients, doctors and staff. Data stolen from the medical industry includes information related to patients, their medical history, bills, and other records, which can be misused by cyber criminals to create fake IDs for claiming insurance or additional gains.
Moreover, due to the increased usage of various software and applications like remote patient monitoring, healthcare information system (HIS), and others in the healthcare industry, the data protection become critical. The information is stored on cloud which do not offer appropriate security, and are prone to viruses and cyber-attacks. Thus, to combat such cyber threats, many healthcare organizations are adopting patch and remediation software for regularly updating the software and applications and to prevent the critical information of patients and staff.
APAC Demand Outlook for Patch and Remediation Software
Organizations of all sizes in the APAC region are embracing digital transformation, resulting in an explosion of new software, platforms, applications, devices, and technologies, including cloud, SaaS, mobile, IoT, and devOps. Growing digitization in countries such as Indian, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia and others, has broadened the ways for new cyber threats, and this is prompting enterprises to opt for newer and better security solutions which help them to get the visibility and focus required on closing the cyber exposure gap against a modern attack surface.
Digitization has resulted in the emergence of multichannel integration and various customer interfaces that are vulnerable. Hence, it is vital for enterprises to stay ahead on security by protecting information with patch and remediation software. Thus, growing digitization has created potential opportunities for patch and remediation software which help in monitoring and managing the modern attacks and reduce the risk of cyber threats.
