Forecast Summary

Total business spend on SIEM will exceed $6.4 billion globally by 2027, from just over $4.4 billion in 2022. It predicted that this growth of 45% will be driven by the transition from term licence (where businesses can use SIEM for specific licence lengths) to more flexible SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) models (where SIEM solutions are purchased via monthly subscription). This will enable small business to access previously unaffordable services.

• The research has identified the world’s leading SIEM providers by evaluating their offerings, and the key factors that have led to their respective success, such as the breadth and depth of their platforms.

• The top three vendors are as follows:
  1. IBM
  2. Rapid7
  3. Splunk
• Juniper Research has ranked IBM as leading in the global SIEM market, based on its highly successful analytics platform and its ease of integration. SIEM vendors aiming to compete must design scalable solutions that are accessible to smaller businesses, which can provide easy to understand, actionable insights for less experienced cybersecurity teams.

• Additionally, SaaS business models within SIEM are gaining traction; accounting for almost 73% of global business spend on SIEM in 2027, from only 37% in 2022. This significant increase represents an opportunity for newer vendors to break into the market with appealing SaaS-based models, but SIEM vendors must be careful to not leave larger enterprises who still prefer term licences behind.
