IAM helps efficiently to re-configure the traditional IT security framework by offering IAM services over the cloud and also on-premise. Currently, the collaboration of IAM with cloud is picking up pace due to its minimal effort and upgraded security. Cloud IAM offers a range of services, for example, client provisioning, access monitoring, multi-factor verification, directory administration, single sign-on, compliance administration and password management. Many companies are seen to be implementing IAM to enhance their security framework. A well installed cloud IAM framework avoids information security break and thus decreases the financial misfortune occurring due to the same.
Companies install cloud and hybrid applications at a huge scale attributable to the decrease in the rates of transmission capacity and bandwidth. It has been assessed that an organization can save over 30% of the yearly cost by the use of cloud IAM applications. The overhead expenses for the companies are increasing because of growing complexities of digital threat and for the recovery of the data. This has led to extension of the IAM market size with installations in numerous companies. The growing awareness of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and other similar trends in organizations have increased the security concerns. Organizations in the BFSI sector are implementing the digital security services for screening and identifying the threats. A few stringent government regulations are being directed to address their safety measures. For instance, under the HIPAA law, medical services associations are required to guarantee the transportability of healthcare coverage and the protection of patient records. It expects associations to prepare representatives who will efficiently look after security measures.
Asia-Pacific identity and access management market is expected to grow at a high rate because of the increasing implementations of IAM systems for tackling growing attacks on critical infrastructures. MEA region is additionally foreseen to pick up pace with huge development over the forecast period.
