As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global Cloud Security Posture Management market is expected to grow from USD 4.2 billion in 2020 and to reach USD 11.8 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period 2021-2028.
The Cloud Security Posture Management market is witnessing significant growth from the past years. This growth is attributed to the growing number of cloud breaches attributable to misconfiguration, a lack of security tools and techniques, and increased companies’ reliance on digital resources.
Cloud security posture management is an assortment of strategies and technologies that organizations may use to reduce the operational complexity of managing multiple clouds by establishing a unified security solution for all cloud services and infrastructure. Cloud security posture management automates cloud security monitoring across a variety of infrastructure types, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS). Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) is considered a market segment for IT security systems that detect cloud misconfiguration issues and compliance risks. An essential aim of CSPM programming is to analyze cloud infrastructure for gaps in security policy compliance constantly. Cloud Security Posture Management systems are designed to detect and resolve issues caused by cloud misconfigurations. A single CSPM tool may be confined to implementing best practices for a single cloud environment or service. Several CSPM systems can automatically repair faults by combining continuous real-time monitoring with automation tools capable of detecting and resolving issues such as improper account privileges. Continuous compliance can also be configured using some standards. Using cloud security posture management, organizations may satisfy a variety of security requirements, such as compliance evaluation, operational monitoring, DevOps integration, incident detection and response, and risk visualization.
The global Cloud Security Posture Management market is expected to witness significant growth due to the remote workforce and a substantial increase in agility and speed in providing new services and applications during the COVID-19 pandemic and growing the adoption of cloud-based solutions and services. The factors restraining the market growth are insufficient understanding of cloud resources, issues related to cloud infrastructure security, and the complexities of cloud strategy. The rising amount of cloud-based business migration will provide market growth opportunities.
