Avoiding Data Disasters
The proliferation of data, increased regulatory pressures, and rising concerns around critical data loss in on-premises environments have driven increased interest in data protection offerings.
Identity and access management is expected to dominate the data protection market over the next half-decade due to its centralized nature and cost-effectiveness, according to research firm MarketsandMarkets. Identity and access management consists of provisioning, advanced authentication, directory technologies, password management, audit, and single sign-on capabilities.
The global data protection market is expected to hit $119.95 billion in 2022, MarketsandMarkets projects, with North America leading the way due to data security and privacy concerns, the need for regulatory compliance, and the presence of managed security service providers (MSSPs).
This year's CRN Security 100 list includes 20 identity and access management and data protection vendors giving organizations peace of mind that their most important data and applications are safe.
