The cross domain solution market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.25% during the forecast period.

A cross-domain solution (CDS) is an integrated information assurance system consisting of specialized software and, hardware that offers a controlled interface to enable or restrict data access or transfer across multiple security domains based on a predetermined security protocol. Such security solutions are used in military, intelligence, and law enforcement environments to enable secure communication of potentially sensitive information between departments. The increasing cyber threats and numerous technology advancements have emerged as a significant driving force behind the substantial growth of the cross-domain solution market.

Market Drivers

  • Increasing cyber threats bolster the cross-domain solution market growth.

Cross-domain solution plays a vital role in providing security for sensitive data. The increasing incidence of cyber threats has increased the demand for cross-domain solutions that can efficiently implement domain separation and filter content, maintaining the security of highly sensitive data. For instance, according to the World Bank, cyber-attacks will threaten approximately $5.2 trillion in global value between 2019 -2023. Every month, 10.5 million records are stolen or destroyed, with 438,000 stolen every hour, and a single large-scale attack may result in $53 billion in economic losses.

  • The rise in technology advancements drives cross-domain solution market growth.

Technological advancements have a significant impact on the growth of the cross-domain solution market. The development of more sophisticated products, as well as increased investment in research and development activities, have improved the performance of cross-domain solutions, allowing them to be used in a wider range of sectors. For instance, in November 2022, Owl Cyber Defense Solutions announced the release of V3CDS, its first multi-domain cross-domain solution (CDS). V3CDS is an adaptable, scalable transfer CDS built for streaming and collaboration throughout up to 12 domains (based on requirements and performance improvements). It also has a flexible, user-friendly design for comprehensive administration across every domain, as well as remote monitoring and management support.

  • The booming expansion in IOT devices drives the cross-domain solution market expansion.

Cross-domain solutions contribute significantly to the growth of IoT devices by securing the flow of data from various IoT devices. The increasing use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices throughout industries makes managing and securing different data sources more efficient. However, IoT devices can be at risk of cybersecurity threats, so protecting them is essential to prevent unauthorized access, data breaches, and other cyber-attacks. Cross-domain solutions provide a secure communication framework, lowering the risk of security holes in IoT networks. Due to the security features of cross-domain solutions, there is a high demand for such types of security solutions in various sectors to provide better security.

North- America is anticipated to dominate the market.

North America is projected to account for a major share of the cross-domain solution market owing to the region’s robust growth in technology advancement. Additionally, various North American economies are investing in cybersecurity to keep their confidential and sensitive data from unwanted access. For instance, according to the U.S. Government, in 2024, the President's Budget for IT at civilian Federal agencies is expected to be $74 billion. Increase of 13% over the 2023 forecast. The President's Budget assigns funds to 25 agencies for 4,529 investments. These investments support the three areas of the IT Portfolio in which there are 588 major IT investments among the 4,529 IT investments to improve the Nation’s Cybersecurity.

Market Challenges

  • High implementation costs will restrain the cross-domain solution market growth.

The growth of the cross-domain solution industry may be restrained by the higher implementation costs. The cross-domain solution is a significant barrier to adoption for many organizations, mainly small and medium-sized enterprises including the requirement for specialized hardware and software customized to the organization's security needs. Customizations are essential to align cross-domain solutions with safety policies, compliance requirements, and operational workflows. Customization efforts can lead to higher implementation costs and due to their high implementation cost and customization complexity cross-domain solution industry may restrain the market growth.

Market Developments

  • April 2023- Cisco introduces a new solution to identify advanced cyber threats and automate response. Cisco's new XDR solution, as well as the release of advanced Duo MFA features, will assist businesses in better protecting the integrity of the whole IT ecosystem. It combines its extensive knowledge and visibility across the network and devices into a single turnkey, risk-based solution.

Company Products

  • Forcepoint Cross Domain Solution- Forcepoint is the only COTS developer with NCDSMO-approved Access and Transfer solutions. The company's cross-domain solution is to automate processes and reduce complexity. It enables organizations to centralize data storage servers, whether in the data center, the cloud, or a hybrid of the two.
  • BAE System Cross Domain Solution- It is an information security system that offers tailored security enforcement functions to reduce the risks associated with accessing or transferring data across networks. It also aids in the prediction of future threats and reduces network vulnerability to cyberattacks.
  • Thomas Cross Domain Solution- The company's data diode and cross-domain technology, security across classified and protected systems, has been chosen for several major protected vehicle programs. It was created for use in harsh conditions of operation typical of military vehicles such as IFVs, CRVs, and Main Battle Tanks.
