Market Overview

The Global Cloud Security Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 10.0% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Cloud Security is a service that facilitates the protection of stored online data via cloud computing platforms from leakage, theft, and deletion. There are several methods adopted by cloud security including penetration testing, virtual private networks (VPN), firewalls, obfuscation, tokenization and avoiding public internet connections.

Cloud security provides guidance to avoid the future risk associated with business risk at every layer of the stack to enable business goals to implement a secure-by-design methodology. Cloud security establishes security orchestration through automation to define and enforce businesses programs.

It helps to rapidly detect and respond to attacks as well as to manage threat and event information with precise insights. Hence several end-user industries such as BFSI, government institutions, small and medium scale enterprises, etc. are adopting cloud security to secure and manage critical data of the organizations.

 

Market Dynamics

The global cloud security market growth is driven by the rising demand for cloud security due to surge in the prevalence of cyber-attacks and the strengthening of rules & regulations for cyber security.

Increasing prevalence of cyber attack and strengthning of rules & regulations for data protection using cyber security

The global cloud security market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period due to the increasing number of cases of cyber attacks. For instance, in 2019, Amazon cloud servers have been attacked by cybercriminals leaving behind more than half a billion Facebook users' records exposed and remaining unprotected.

Rising number of data breached cases

From 2005 to 2019, the largest banking institution in the United States Capital One have suffered a massive data breach that exposed the personal information of over 106 million credit card applicants. Thus such rising cyber crime cases around the world have propelled the demand for the cloud security market.

Lack of a skilled workforce and less awareness about cloud security hinder the market growth

Cloud security has less awareness among the developing regions due to the lack of presence of skilled workforce and the absence of advanced technology which hampers the growth of this market. A developing region such as South Africa has less knowledge regarding cloud computing. For instance, in 2015 as per the International Journal of Trade, Economics and Finance, in South Africa, a study was conducted to know the awareness about the cloud computing which showed that, around 40% of respondents has very low knowledge of cloud computing, 13% has average knowledge, 27% have a basic knowledge while 7% have a high knowledge.

Adoption of public cloud services with growing launching and spending on cloud security may create a lucrative opportunity

There is a rise in the adoption of public cloud-based services and the rise in the launching of advanced end point security services by leading players has created huge opportunities for this market. As per the International Trade Administration report, public cloud expenditure reached around US $ 250 billion by 2017, increasing from US$ 158 billion in 2014. It has created massive demand for the cloud security market around the globe.

 

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The market for cloud security is expected to grow significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is primarily due to a surge in the number of data breaches cases globally. During the covid-19 pandemic, the scope of cyberattacks has been tremendously increased as several businesses have been moved towards a hybrid-cloud environment.

As per the threat report organization, cloud services have shown substantial growth of nearly 22% to reduce the number of company's downtime. Covid-19 pandemic has paved way for the adoption of cloud services, which made the cloud the center of attraction for attackers. Thus overall demand for the cloud security has been increased due to the prevalence of the covid-19 as several leading players were shifted to cloud platforms owing to a surge in the work from home cases as several countries were in lockdown state.

Cloud Security Market Segment Analysis

The global cloud security market is segmented based on type, deployment, solution, application, end-user, and region.

In terms of type, the global cloud security market is bifurcated into email & web security, cloud database security, cloud IAM, endpoint security, data loss prevention, network security, cloud encryption, application security, others.

The email & web security segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)

Email & web security has the highest market share in 2019, this is primarily due to raising the number of data breach cases of exposing personal information. For instance, the web payment portal of the American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA) was attacked by a cyber criminal who exposed of personal data and payment information of around 20 million patients through an online website in 2019. Further on April 23, 2019 as per the FBI estimation, US businesses and individuals have registered a loss of over US$ 1.3 billion as a result of Business Email Compromise (BEC) fraud. It created a massive demand for cloud security for email & web services.

Also, cloud database security, cloud IAM, endpoint security, data loss prevention, network security, cloud encryption, application security are growing at faster pace owing to the rising adoption of advanced technology-based cloud services and rising cyber attacks in the end-user industries including BFSI, government organizations, etc. For instance as per the Weforum Organization report in 2019, botnet banking have been used data of around 30,000 customers to steal more than US$ 42 million over a 90-day period.

ublic segment will provide the necessary boost during the forecast period (2020-2027)
