The global outsourcing market in Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector is forecasted to grow to a CAGR of 6.79% during the period 2016-2020.[1] While there is a slowdown in expected growth for IT companies globally, the Indian BFSI sector is yet a potential market for these IT companies – because India is ranked third amongst countries most affected by financial trojans after USA and Germany.[2]

Moreover, the BFSI security market is not bound only to India – its global market size is estimated to grow from US$ 25.61 billion in 2015 to US$ 44.38 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 11.6% from 2015 to 2020.[3]
