Market Report Description

The Global Cloud Compliance Market size is expected to reach $64.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 14.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

The art and science of adhering to industry standards and local, national, as well as international legislation while using the cloud are known as "cloud compliance." Businesses can find themselves using the cloud before they had intended to, which makes things more difficult. One of the fundamental principles of the cloud is that there should be a self-service interface that makes it simple for users to sign up for, modify, and terminate cloud services.

Cloud Compliance Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are some examples of common regulatory requirements (GLBA). It turns out that anyone today could be a victim. A department can start uploading data to the cloud right away with just a corporate credit card.

Shadow IT is the phrase used for this, and it is not new. These days, a lot of people use this phrase because of how clouds operate. One of the main drivers fueling market expansion is the rising prominence of web applications. Additionally, the use of cloud compliance solutions is being fueled by the development of new technologies and the growing penetration of IoT.

Compliance with laws and regulations that pertain to using the cloud is referred to as cloud compliance. The majority of businesses are utilizing the cloud because there are sound commercial justifications for doing so. The use of cloud computing is not prohibited by the legislation. But it does have a substantial influence.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to flexible working arrangements, enterprises are encountering data security breaches as a result of the lockdown enforced in the UK. Additionally, the use of cloud collaboration tools has increased. Therefore, for a safe remote working office environment, it is vital to secure cloud storage and follow the legislative compliances imposed by the EU. Industries in Germany are facing issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The worldwide demand for cloud compliance technology solutions is fueled by such strict rules. Regulations like the GDPR and the French Data Protection Act (FDPA) have tightened compliance with legal requirements in France to ensure cybersecurity.

Market Growth Factors

Rising Need For Automated Compliance In Large Enterprises

To maximize the advantages of moving to the cloud, the majority of large businesses have implemented a multi-cloud strategy. But this shift brings up two significant problems that are complexity and ineffective data management. This is particularly true for major enterprises that must adhere to the regulatory rules of several nations and have data centers dispersed over the globe.

Increasing Interest In CNAPP Solutions

As businesses expand, they frequently use a variety of products in several cloud environments, each with a different set of security constraints. Tools like CSPM, CWPP, and CASB are used by security teams to secure cloud infrastructure. However, this strategy introduces integration challenges and visibility gaps. It is challenging to identify and address security flaws and vulnerabilities because of how interconnected and interdependent everything is.
