Consumer Software

 

Consumers expect more from their machines and devices at home. They also need to protect their home systems and networks from cyber threats and so the consumer cybersecurity software market is seeing substantial growth. Consumers today are data privacy aware; they know their information can be stolen and misused, this awareness is driving demand for security software in the consumer market. Small and owner-operated home businesses and remote workers, all growing market segments, also need software and security protection but not at the enterprise level.
