Scope of the Report

Cloud Discovery refers to analyzing unmanaged cloud applications used by associates of the organization. This helps to control unauthorized access to corporate data and other security risk associated with cloud-based technology. Cloud discovery uses the cloud vendor’s API to extract data on the client cloud services, rather than the direct access used in scanning their on-premises infrastructure. The scope of the study includes various end-user industries currently adopting the cloud discovery platform thereby integrating it to their existing business model.

Key Market Trends

IT & Telecommunication Sector to Grow at a Significant Rate

  • The concept of the unified, outsourced solution is alluring for modern IT admins since the alternative is a mess of partial add-on solutions with an aging on-premise IT infrastructure. Also, with the penetration of cloud services rising day-by-day across the IT industry, the databases and servers are now being shifted to the cloud. Also, growth in cloud spending is expected to drive the solution from the cloud discovery market.
  • Prominent telecom organizations have also begun to transform themselves into technology providers by creating mobile applications for the use of VoIP calls and storing data on cloud platforms.
  • In addition to this, growth in security spending in IT organizations along with the combined mobility and cloud computing is expected to create new frontiers of risks for operators, thereby driving the adoption of a highly secure and robust cloud discovery platform.

North America is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

  • Due to the presence of a large number of vendors offering cloud discovery solutions and services across the region, it is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period.
  • Enterprises are investing heavily in cloud computing technologies to gain a competitive edge over the competitors and improve their overall business operations. Moreover, the increasing adoption of cloud discovery across the region can be attributed to the widespread presence of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) that are implementing low-cost cloud-based technologies to achieve in-depth visibility and control over their cloud applications and IT infrastructure.

Competitive Landscape

Cloud discovery market is moderately competitive and consists of a few major players. In terms of market share, some of the players currently dominate the market. However, with the advancement in the managed services, new players are increasing their market presence thereby expanding their business footprint across the emerging economies.
