Network segmentation is a process of splitting the computer networking into sub networks to boost network performance and improve security. Increasing cyber-attacks on connected devices is a major driving factor for the growth of the global network segmentation solution market. For instance, in 2014, cyber criminals attacked the Home Depot's network and stole information of more than 56 million payment cards. In 2017, WannaCry ransomware attack, a worldwide cyber-attack, affected more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries in which India, Russia, Taiwan, and Ukraine were majorly affected. Similarly, the 2016 Indian banks data breach and the 2017 Equifax data breach are some of the other major cyber-attacks through which personal data or information of millions of customers have been stolen. Hence, increasing cyber-attacks have driven the need for advance network security solutions which controls the unauthorized access of cyber criminals. This has accelerated the network segmentation solution market globally. In addition, the increasing numbers of network connected devices have raised the demand for advance network security solutions which accelerates the market. For instance, by 2022, global networked devices is expected to reach 28.5 billion units, up from 18.0 billion units in 2017.
