Market Report Description

The Global Data Security as a Service Market size is expected to reach $62.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 12.6% CAGR during the forecast period.

With a straightforward, portable, cloud-native offering, Data Security as a Service (DSaaS) allows application and security executives to reduce the risk and compliance responsibilities for the organization's sensitive data. No matter where sensitive PII, PHI, and PCI data are housed, this comprehensive method offers data access monitoring, access governance, and at-rest security.

Data Security as a Service Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

Cybercriminals continue to gain access to the data they are after despite network and endpoint protection, identity access, and encryption. Companies cannot afford to keep having their security compromised; not only does it cost them money, but it also severely damages their reputation and timeliness. It's critical for security and compliance teams to review and double-check that their security procedures are in place, given the rising pressure from rivals and high expectations from consumers.

Delivering strong security while having minimal adverse effects on the possibility of innovation or development is the aim of DSaaS. DSaaS offers full visibility, management, and security for all sensitive data in one service by combining functions that are often distinct in traditional systems. It stands out from all other security models because of its simplicity of integration, the cheaper total cost of ownership, and higher protection.

Although monitoring might not seem like a game-changer, it's incredible how many security systems merely "monitor," leaving an organization with first-hand knowledge of a breach but no ability to prevent it. The ease with which crucial data and activities may be deleted and edited is another significant problem with conventional monitoring technologies.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 had a favorable effect on the market for data security as a service. Owing to the enforcement of the lockdown due to the pandemic, numerous enterprises, manufacturing facilities, and retail businesses suffered. The pandemic has, nevertheless, caused a shift towards remote working arrangements. Adopting a work-from-home policy has raised awareness among enterprises about data security and cyber-attacks and increased demand for security solutions. Also, many primary and small businesses have raised the amount of money they spend on cybersecurity-related products.

Market Growth Factors

Data expansion and cloud-based security

Due to the expanding data evolution, businesses are more concerned with improved data security and privacy safeguards. They also want to avoid subjecting the data to internal oversight and security flaws. Every endpoint gateway, sensor, and smartphone in the modern, digitally altered world has emerged as a possible hacking target. As data needs to be protected and regularly backed up, businesses need data security services. Taking care of these problems will significantly speed up the adoption of data security services.

A surge in the BYOD trends

The IT infrastructure has grown increasingly complicated and heterogeneous over the past few years due to the introduction of new platforms, BYOD regulations, CYOD trends, business apps, and other technologies. The BYOD and CYOD trends are becoming increasingly common in business settings due to the quick improvements in mobile computing. These developments enable employees to access corporate data with their devices from anywhere, at any time, increasing employee productivity and allowing more flexible work environments. So, protecting corporate data from potential hazards is essential to preserve its confidentiality and integrity.

Market Restraining Factors

Minimal spending on data security and costly installation

Many firms lack a sufficient IT security infrastructure because of their limited financial resources, which inhibits the use of new technologies and corporate security solutions and services. As data security expenditures won't be enough to address data security demands, organizations must identify which program components and information assets are most essential for addressing escalating security risks. High installation costs and challenging integration requirements hamper the early adoption of data security systems and these factors are anticipated to restrict data security as a service market's growth in the projected period.

Type Outlook

By type, the data security as a service market is segmented into data backup & recovery as a service, data encryption & masking as a service, data discovery & classification as a service, data access control as a service, data governance & compliance as a service, and data auditing & monitoring as a service. The data backup & recovery as a service segment procured a prominent revenue share in the data security as a service market in 2021. The growth is attributed to the fact that it is an alternative to an on-premises custom backup system. It indicates that a service provider will back up the company data offshore. Typically, it's a centralized solution that enables control and monitoring of backup and recovery from a single piece of glass.
