The African Prospect
The Africa cyber security market size is anticipated to witness strong growth over the coming years on account of rapid growth in internet users combined with growing dependability on e-governance, IoT, commercial services and social networking.
This is also bolstered by an increasing number of cybercrime within the country that have, unfortunately, been seeing a surge in pushing governments to support sectors such as telecom, retail, finance and health to help amplify the demand for enterprise cybersecurity products, services and consumer software in the country.

What next for the continent?
Enterprises and governments are leading an increased effort to strengthen the internet infrastructure and improve the solutions and aid provided by the software industry in a bid to protect its citizens from cyber attacks in the future.
Apart from this, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet subscriptions, data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased spending patterns on security forums are boosting the demand for cybersecurity solutions in the nation.
