Easy integration of cloud application security solutions with organizations’ existing security infrastructure is expected to drive the cloud application security market
The cloud application security market size is expected to grow from USD 6.78 billion in 2017 to USD 13.67 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.1%. The cloud application security market is driven by factors, such as strong regulations and compliance requirements, easy integration of cloud application security solutions with organizations’ existing security infrastructure, and rise in security breaches targeting business-critical cloud applications. However, non-acceptance of CASB as a security solution by enterprises is acting as restraining factor in this market. Furthermore, lack of technical expertise among the enterprise workforce for the development of advanced cloud application security solutions and lack of awareness about advanced cyber threats and growing security concerns are the biggest challenges for organizations.
