Indian Cybersecurity Industry's game-changer - Meet the 4 Desi-Startups leading the way

In 2023, the cybersecurity industry is projected to generate revenue of US$2.37 billion. As technology continues to advance, the risk of data breaches is also on the rise, leading to an increase in cyber attacks.

According to a Statista report, the Security Services category is expected to be the largest market segment, with a volume of US$1.19 billion in 2023. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of internet methods by consumers, businesses, and industries. Businesses are turning to digital methods to stay competitive, which has led to an increase in cyber risks.

As a result, there has been a surge in cyberattacks and a corresponding rise in demand for cybersecurity solutions. These startups, using AI and ML, not only predict cyberattacks before they happen but also provide complete visibility, advanced detection, response, and scalability to their customers through software tools, standalone solutions, managed services, vulnerability analysis, consulting, outsourced technology support, and more.

We have compiled a list of four “Make-in-India Startups” that are leading the cybersecurity market:
