Saudi Arabia Security Market Trends:

National Security Programs

The launch of regulatory initiatives and the evolving regulatory landscape across the country are augmenting the security market in Saudi Arabia. In September 2023, the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) introduced a nationwide awareness campaign called “Ask Before,” which was intended to educate the public regarding the significance of safeguarding personal data ahead of the implementation of a new national personal data protection system. Moreover, emphasizing privacy preservation, responsible data handling, and fostering trust, as well as collaboration between commercial entities and private individuals, the campaign also supported the Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL) implemented by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Besides this, the increasing adoption of e-government services is elevating the requirement for protecting the sensitive data of citizens to maintain public trust and ensure the efficient functioning of state institutions. In Saudi Arabia, the National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) oversees cybersecurity standards and defense capabilities. The NCA’s 2023 National Plan for Cyber Assessments mapped out a rigorous approach to regulate security measures across national entities. Apart from this, Haseen, officially known as the National Portal for Cyber Security Services, was introduced by the NCA’s technical division, the Saudi Information Technology Company (SITE), as a holistic cyber management platform. Additionally, key domains within Haseen are related to information sharing, compliance management, email authentication, verification of files and links, etc. Furthermore, regulatory bodies in the country, such as the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones, are instrumental in ensuring the highest levels of security across several sectors. In July 2023, the GCF Institute was introduced in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to develop strategies for tackling cybersecurity challenges. Similarly, in September 2023, based on a Saudi proposal at the recent 160th session of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers of the Arab League, a regional body was formed to drive coordination and collaboration between Arab countries in all cybersecurity-related matters.

Adoption of Cloud Computing

The rising popularity of cloud computing, as it aids in providing scalability that enhances both cybersecurity and physical security infrastructures, is propelling Saudi Arabia's security market growth. In May 2023, the Economic Cities and Special Zones Authority in the country announced the launch of the Cloud Computing Special Economic Zone that provided flexibility to establish data centers across the Kingdom. Moreover, in March 2024, Amazon Web Services (AWS) unveiled its plan to invest more than US$5.3 Billion to build data centers and a significant cloud presence in Saudi Arabia. Besides this, cloud-based security services allow organizations to leverage advanced technologies, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data analytics, to detect and respond to threats in real-time. For example, in July 2023, Fortanix Inc., one of the multi-cloud data security companies, and the Saudi Information Technology Company (SITE) partnered to deliver revolutionary multi-cloud SaaS data security offerings in Saudi Arabia. Additionally, cloud solutions offer continuous monitoring, robust data protection, automated threat detection, etc., thereby addressing the increasing complexity and volume of cyber threats. For instance, in June 2023, Cisco revealed arrangements to put together a data center for cloud-delivered security in Saudi Arabia to protect infrastructure, users, and investments against rogue elements.

Technological Integration and Collaboration

Government entities and private companies are forming partnerships to improve the overall security infrastructures of the country, which is increasing Saudi Arabia's security market share. For instance, in December 2023, Kaspersky developed its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service in collaboration with the Saudi Cloud Computing Company (SCCC) Alibaba Cloud to fortify cybersecurity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Besides this, the implementation of national security projects is also acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. For example, in November 2023, Haboob, a cybersecurity service provider owned by the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones, and Google signed a deal to provide Google's Chronicle CyberShield as a managed service to public sector organizations in Saudi Arabia. Apart from this, the introduction of AI-powered analytics for threat detection is also positively influencing the market. For instance, in February 2024, the Saudi Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Abdullah Al-Swaha, announced the launch generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) program to support research and predictive security policies. It is supervised by the International Center for Artificial Intelligence Research and Ethics (ICAIRE), which was launched in November 2023 and led by the Saudi Data and Intelligence Authority (SDAIA). Furthermore, in March 2024, the Saudi Ministry of Defense (MoD) introduced favorable space defense initiatives with a specific focus on integrating artificial intelligence (AI).

In Saudi Arabia, security systems are extensively utilized across various sectors to enhance safety and protection. In government buildings, biometric access control systems and comprehensive video surveillance ensure that only authorized personnel can enter, and activities are closely monitored, exemplified by the systems used in the Ministry of Interior. According to the Saudi Arabia security market statistics, in the military and defense sector, advanced intrusion detection systems with motion sensors and robust barrier systems, such as automated gates and perimeter fencing, safeguard military bases from unauthorized access. Transportation hubs like King Abdulaziz International Airport employ high-definition video surveillance to monitor passenger areas and perimeter security, complemented by alarms and notification systems in railways and metro systems for rapid incident response. Commercial establishments, including shopping malls and retail stores, use card-based access control systems and alarms to prevent theft and unauthorized entry. Industrial facilities, particularly in the oil and gas sector, rely on intrusion detection systems and physical barrier systems to protect against potential sabotage. For example, in November 2023, Aramco, the national oil company of Saudi Arabia, launched an operational technology security training academy to strengthen cyber protections for Aramco's industrial assets and infrastructure. Additionally, sectors such as healthcare and education utilize video surveillance and access control systems to maintain the safety of patients, staff, and students, as seen in hospitals and universities.

The Western Region, home to cities like Jeddah and the holy city of Mecca, implements robust video surveillance and crowd management systems to ensure the safety of millions of pilgrims during Hajj. The Eastern Region, a hub for the oil and gas industry, employs sophisticated intrusion detection systems and physical barriers to protect critical infrastructure like the Aramco facilities from potential threats. The Southern Region, which includes border areas, military installations, and border control points, is equipped with high-tech surveillance and intrusion detection systems to monitor and secure the extensive and often rugged borders. In February 2024, Abdullah bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi Minister of the National Guard, partnered with international and domestic entities to foster the domestic production of unmanned aircraft systems designed to counteract radiological, chemical, biological, and nuclear threats.
