Market Report Description

The Global Cloud DLP Market size is expected to reach $11 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 27.9% CAGR during the forecast period.

Data loss prevention (DLP) solutions protect sensitive data from being vulnerably stored, utilized, or transmitted. By protecting the data, the likelihood of data theft or unlawful disclosure is diminished. Cloud DLP solutions protect businesses that have embraced cloud storage specifically by preventing sensitive data from accessing the cloud before even being encrypted. Data can then be exchanged with authorized cloud apps after encryption. The majority of these solutions modifies or erases sensitive data before sharing it on the cloud to ensure data security throughout data transfer and cloud storage.

Market Restraining Factors

Restricted Control and Features Along With Bandwidth Problem

When a business sends all of its data to the cloud, it loses track over that data, and it becomes difficult for the IT department to have complete visibility and control over it. To reduce expenses, businesses opt for cloud services with restricted functionality. If businesses do not select for customization according to their needs, cloud services would be difficult to administer and their security may be jeopardized. Even if the number of servers is decreased, businesses would still want backup and recovery. When transferring data to the cloud, organizations cannot eliminate all servers and personnel.

Component Outlook

On the basis of component, the cloud DLP market is bifurcated into Solution and Service. The service segment acquired a significant revenue share in the cloud DLP market in 2021. This is due to the increased use of cloud-based solutions by businesses in order to remain competitive and productive. In addition, there are many companies which are providing data protection services to their clients to make their process hassle-free.
