In light of the growing demand for securing digital services, the Container Security Market is steadily growing and is expected to reach 2.63 billion USD by 2025. Its Compound Annual Growth Range (CAGR) of 25.7% is a key indicator of that growth. The largest market share is in North America, contributing 68.1% of the global revenue, followed by EMEA with a 25.4% share. APAC and LATAM show lower adoption, but see significant growth can be expected in those markets as well.
In the last few years, security faced a massive change in infrastructure and a major increase in overall complexity, introducing numerous new risks and security challenges. Similarly, companies must gain skills to efficiently mitigate those risks. Containers and Kubernetes have quickly become synonymous with modern DevOps methodologies, continuous delivery, and deployment automation and are generally praised as a breakthrough in developing and managing cloud-native applications and services.
However, the need to secure containerized applications at every layer of the underlying infrastructure (from bare-metal hardware to the network to the control plane of the orchestration platform itself) and at every stage of the development lifecycle (from coding and testing to deployment and operations) means that container security must cover the whole spectrum of cybersecurity and then some.
