The Global Software Defined Perimeter Market size is expected to reach $10.7 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 23.7% CAGR during the forecast period. The growing adoption of cloud technology, a need for flexible and programmable security architecture, and strict data compliance regulations and requirements are expected to drive growth of this market. Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) is a security-based approach that reduces network-based attacks. In this sense, a perimeter is dynamically established on the network to secure data present in the cloud, the demilitarized zone and the data centers. The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the changing patterns of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are expected to further accelerate growth.
Traditional VPN access is liberal and allows remote workers access to the network, which is not needed to complete the tasks. This results in access to resources and is unreasonably obvious, vulnerable and can be easily targeted. Organizations require additional user communication and implementation through a variety of cloud instances. The cost of VPN or firewall rises immediately with the need for such additional authorizations. VPN also provides versatility and can therefore be used to connect Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), data centers as well as multiple networks. Nonetheless, this connection costs a lot and is resource-intensive. SDP decreases the costs incurred and eventually drives demand for data security in the infrastructure.
Organizations such as banks and other financial services, healthcare and telecommunications providers, face difficulties in meeting security requirements in virtualized cloud environments. Financial institutions are expected to have a data center with several physical controls. It makes it difficult for financial institutions to use public cloud infrastructure. SDP simplifies these difficulties and allows using public cloud infrastructure when appropriate.
Software-Defined Architecture provides a stringent framework of access for specific resources and applications. There is also a limited threat surface because the target individuals remain hidden and the controller must verify the users. Software-Defined Firewall prevents credential theft, internal network attacks, ransomware, and man-in-the-middle attacks. Major factors driving market growth include a rising need for a policy-based security architecture to minimize network complexity, increase the adoption of cloud-based applications, and a growing need for regulation and enforcement to improve network security.
