Global 5G Security Market Analysis Report 2023: An $11.2 Billion Market by 2028 - Palo Alto Networks, Cylance are Poised to Capitalize on the Market

Dublin, March 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "5G Security Market by Technology, Solution, Category, Software, Services, and Industry Vertical Support 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

This report evaluates the 5G threat landscape as well as technologies and solutions to secure networks, platforms, devices, data, and applications. The report also assesses the 5G security market outlook and potential for many solutions, services, and support.

It also evaluates the impact of security functions across various technologies including Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), IoT networks, and mobility infrastructure. The report includes market forecasts for all major technologies, industry verticals, solutions, and service types from 2023 to 2028.

Fifth-generation(5G) cellular is poised to transform the ICT industry through substantially enhanced mobility services, massively scalable Internet of Things (IoT)networks, and support for critical apps and services by way of ultra-low latency communications. With these anticipated improvements come great responsibilities for privacy and security. The 5G security market must be robust as solutions need to be deployed on multiple levels including devices, air interface equipment, cloud RAN infrastructure, mobile backhaul facilities, and more.

Among other areas, the 3GPP Security architecture and procedures for 5G System (Specification #: 33.501) specifies requirements for E1 and f1 interfaces as well as requirements for an overall secure environment. The organization specified many areas necessary for 5G security including subscription authentication, UE authorization, access and serving network authorization and more. Other areas include user and signaling data integrity to ensure seamlessness and interoperability between network elements.

One of the important areas emerging with 5G security that is a greater concern than ever before is data security and privacy. Much more so than LTE, 5G networks must be concerned with the confidentiality and integrity of users and signaling data. The 5G gNB must support encryption as per security policies for various potential vulnerability areas such as user data in transit as well as signaling for radio resource control. Access control is equally important as well as ensuring that serving networks are authorized by home networks.

We see one of the biggest 5G security issues at the application layer, which is where many apps and services are supported. With substantially greater bandwidth and ultra-low latency, 5G supports many new and improved apps and services such as untethered Virtual Reality and anytime, anywhere telepresence. Whether it is new immersive technologies or extensions of existing apps such as Voice over 5G, there are some common security issues (such as data privacy) and some completely different issues, such as virtual identity theft in VR.

It is important to note that substantial 5G security spending will occur coincident with mobile network operator plans to build out 5G core infrastructure. Whereas network security appliances continue to be viewed as less expensive and path of least resistance with hybrid LTE/5G networks, carriers will realize substantial savings and fill security gaps with a more integrated cybersecurity approach afforded by 5G service-based architecture.

In terms of market drivers for mobile network operators to expedite implementation of a more integrated 5G security approach, one of the primary areas of focus will be support of 5G-based private wireless networks for enterprise and industrial customers. While today's private networks take a more old-school approach to security, more security-minded enterprise, industrial and government sector customers will realize greater cybersecurity through interconnection and managed services with leading carrier 5G security solutions.

Leading carriers will transform 5G security from a cost of doing business into a major market differentiator for business customers including direct to enterprise/industrial/government customers and via hybrid models, involving neutral hosts and/or direct interconnect with private wireless networks. The challenging task for mobile network operators is to simultaneously convince business customers that they are more secure with them than without them, while not causing alarm about security holes that existed prior to the implementation of5G security solutions.

However, there will also be completely new threats and opportunities such as securing 5G network slicing for enterprise, industrial and government customers. Additional opportunities will emerge such as the ability for network operators of all types to better secure the digital identity of their customers thanks to an integrated ID management approach afforded by 5G service-based architecture.

Leading vendors such as Palo Alto Networks, Cylance Inc. (BlackBerry), and others are poised to capitalize on the market for securing 5G based networks, systems, applications, and services. This includes the 5G security market for hardware, software, and data protection. With recent high-profile events such as alleged espionage on the part of Huawei, cybersecurity is also getting extreme attention at the government level.

By way of example, The Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act was intended to address IoT device security relative to secure development, identity management, patching, and configuration management. Accordingly, the publisher evaluates the market opportunities for next-generation cybersecurity solutions, including the use of AI-based applications, for securing IoT networks and systems.
