Offensive and Defensive Cyber Weapons for Government and Private Sectors Global Market and Technologies Forecast 2014-2024

DUBLIN, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Offensive and Defensive Cyber Weapons for Government and Private Sectors Global Market and Technologies Forecast 2014-2024" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The global cyber weapons industry is driven by a combination of ever-increasing threats to essential industries and critical infrastructures, growing defense spending, corporate IT efforts, and the evolution of offensive Cyber Weapons as a preferred war-making tool. The result of all these threats and perceived opportunities will be a cumulative cyber weapons global market (offensive and defensive) that will top $4 Trillion over the coming decade.

Cyberspace is the Fifth Domain of warfare. Future disputes will increasingly take place with blows of bits and bytes. Armies, industries, essential services, financial systems and communication networks around the world are immensely vulnerable. Rouge digital mass shooters, deranged and/or outraged hackers, and certainly nations, can cause unimaginable damage.

This is why governments and private vendors are investing heavily in defensive and offensive cyber weapons, creating a huge, mostly classified market. Over the next four years, NATO nations (especially the US) will considerably increase their investment in Offensive & Defensive Cyber Weapons while the non-NATO world will also invest heavily in Internet warfare capabilities. The result is a multi-billion dollar market, growing (and sometimes shrinking) in ways that require a keen intellect to master and exploit successfully.

This comprehensive new research report provides a triple-scenario analysis of this complicated, uncertain and rich market. The global evolutionary paths of Offensive & Defensive Cyber Weapons were examined over three possible futures - each then detailed by regions, weapon types and technologies. This unique research effort highlights multiple business opportunities, usable operating concepts and background data on Zero Day Vulnerabilities and DDoS. Together, those features go a long way toward equipping business developers with a clear understanding of evolving markets, buyers with technical understanding and sellers with insights into buyer's needs.

The question is not: Can I afford this report?

The real question is: Can I afford to be without it?
