The global data protection and recovery solution market is expected to reach USD 14.1 billion by 2025, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing adoption of cloud computing by organizations is leading to increased data management concerns. Data migration to the cloud is resulting in a rise in threats such as data loss, unauthorized data processing, and theft.
Increasing adoption of digital transformation is driving the demand for proficient information management, compliance, and governance. Data constitutes a critical part of digital transformation, therefore, making it even more important to ensure proper management and security.
The growing number of information-based organizations is leading to elevated utilization of business information to improve operational efficiency and innovate products and services, based on evolving customer demands and preferences. All the abovementioned factors are expected to propel the demand for data protection, backup, and recovery solutions.
The existing government regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Government Paper Elimination Act (GPEA), and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), are significantly encouraging organizations to implement policies related to data access and protection.
Various nations are planning to implement regulations and impose mandates to ensure data security across different industries. For instance, in 2016, the European Commission introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which would be effective from May 2018. This is anticipated to strengthen and standardized data protection as the rule will compel organizations across Europe to be fully complaint by 2018, thus, boosting sales of security and storage devices across the region
