Market Report Description

The Global Serverless Security Market size is expected to reach $5.7 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 27% CAGR during the forecast period. Serverless refers to an operational model used in cloud computing across various organizations. Under this model, applications of an organization depend on the managed services, which eliminate the requirement to patch, secure and manage infrastructure and virtual machines. In addition, serverless applications depend on the integration of function-as-a-service, or FaaS, and managed cloud services.

With the increasing digitalization across the world, companies need to be cautious of securing their serverless apps as this architecture utilizes a smaller approach than microservices. It utilizes miniature and independent pieces of software that connect with the help of various APIs, which become public once the interaction with cloud providers is established. Due to this mechanism, criminals get the chance to access the APIs through the major security lapse, which would become a barrier for the security of serverless apps such as complex enterprise software.

Data privacy is one of the biggest concerns among the regulated industries like health, banking, and others, and this aspect is encouraging companies operating in these industries to build secure networks. As companies operate their applications and store data on the cloud, the possibilities of security breaches are always there, which creates demand for serverless security solutions across the world.

Serverless Security Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2017-2027

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The imposition of various restrictions due to the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic like travel ban and lockdown has motivated companies to adopt work from home model. This trend has created more demand for cloud computing solutions. However, prior to the pandemic, several companies have considered that shifting sensitive data on the cloud can increase the risk of data and privacy breaches. However, as the companies are moving towards the adoption of cloud-based solutions and services, the requirement for advanced serverless security solutions has also increased.

The rapid shift of the crucial data on the cloud by the organizations across various industrial verticals is creating lucrative opportunities for key market vendors. Although, the rising cloud consumption would add up to the security challenges of the organizations. In addition, the adoption of the latest devices, security & access patterns, and procedures utilized in maintaining cloud environments during working from home have augmented the chances of data breaches. Thus, the rising remote workforce has increased the use of security tools, which would further support the growth of the serverless security market over the forecast period.

Market Growth Factors:

Easier operational management

The serverless platform offers a clear distinction between infrastructure services and applications which are run on top of the platform. Automatic expanding functionality of FaaS reduces compute cost along with reducing operational management outlays. SREs and system engineers can concentrate on running and controlling the underlying platform and core services like databases and load balancers though product engineers manage the functions running on top of the platform.

Faster innovation

The alleviation of concerns associated with system engineering in the underlying platform has allowed product engineers to innovate at a rapid rate. Consequently, less operation time translates into a smooth implementation of DevOps and agile approaches. Regular apprehensions of an internet facing application such as identity management, storage, etc are wide-open to FaaS or managed by the underlying middleware. Product engineers can focus on development of the actual business logic of the application.

Market Restraining Factor:

Architectural complexity

Allocated computing architectures are complicated and consume a lot of time in building. This is applied to micro services and serverless architectures in similar measure. Decisions related to the size of the function consumes a lot of time in assessment, implementation, and testing. There needs to be a balance between the amounts of functions that an application must call. Managing multiple functions and overlooking granularity are cumbersome tasks and end up producing mini-monoliths.

Serverless Security Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Service Model Outlook

Based on Service Model, the market is segmented into Function as a Service (FaaS) and Backend as a Service (BaaS). FaaS helps in streamlining the implementation of applications on the cloud. On the other hand, every feature of the application is implemented into a unified independent feature, and hence, every feature is separately hosted by the provider. In comparison to BaaS, FaaS provides more control to the developers who develop personalized apps instead of depending on a library of prewritten services. Some of the major vendors operating in this industry are AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform with numerous offerings, and IBM.

Enterprise Size Outlook

Based on Enterprise Size, the market is segmented into Large Enterprises and Small & Medium Enterprise. Large enterprises are increasingly transitioning towards DevOps and microservices architectures. Therefore, large enterprises are installing serverless security to reduce serverless security risks like event injection, insecure app secret storage, broken authentication, and improper exception handling.

Security Type Outlook

Based on Security Type, the market is segmented into Data Security, Network Security, Application Security, Perimeter Security, and Others. The network security segment is estimated to exhibit a prominent growth rate over the forecast period. Network security refers to the method of safeguarding networks from advanced cyber threats across a serverless architecture.

End User Outlook

Based on End User, the market is segmented into BFSI, IT & Telecom, Healthcare, Retail & eCommerce, Media & Entertainment, Energy & Utility, Manufacturing, and Others. The growing adoption of cloud computing and various serverless platforms is motivating finance and insurance institutions to fulfill the security standards framed by the regulatory authorities. Moreover, financial service institutes are majorly expanding their partnerships with serverless security service vendors to deploy a complete and holistic serverless application security environment, which can fulfill the global and regional regulatory requirements of the company.
