Industry News of Cloud Application Security Market 



  • March 2023- Cisco, a provider of cybersecurity and cloud solutions, intends to buy Valtix, a Silicon Valley firm in the early stages of the cloud network security market. Cisco's objectives in the multi-cloud network security sector and the benefit of having technologies to track traffic through corporate apps play a role in the acquisition. The platform from Valtix offers capabilities for application defense, security deployment, and automated cloud application discovery. The chief product officer at Cisco Security, Raj Chopra stated that, one thing unites all of this across these various clouds: the network. It is the only location where you have visibility, telemetry, & policy enforcement necessary for consolidated, consistent security since it is the only location that sees all traffic flowing between apps and from applications to users. Valtix will be included into Cisco's Security Business Group after the deal is expected to finalize in the third quarter of this year.


Cloud Application Security Market Trends


The increasing sophistication of cybercrime, cyber espionage campaigns, and new cyberattacks is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for cloud application security is driven by the rising cyberattacks within organizations. Cyberattacks are more likely to target data stored in cloud servers than in organization servers. McAfee said cloud-based cyberattacks on businesses increased by 630% between January and April 2020. This rise is attributed to cloud collaboration tools and services like Microsoft Teams, Cisco WebEx, and Zoom. With SMEs' increasing use of web-based and cloud-based tools and applications, these organizations have become prime targets for threats. Consequently, enterprises of all sizes have become dependent on cloud security to protect their networks from sophisticated cyberattacks. The threat landscape for cyberattacks is constantly evolving, making cloud security paramount.


A major factor contributing to the cloud application security market growth is the rapid technological innovation and the rising trend of using artificial intelligence in cloud application software to improve security. Using the cloud, cloud application security provides a suite of application security tools. It provides rich visibility, control over data travel, and sophisticated analytics across all internal and third-party cloud services for identifying and combating cyber threats. Cloud application security supports various deployment modes, such as reverse proxy, log collection, and API connectors.


It is becoming increasingly common for financial institutions to require cloud-based security systems for payments since these systems offer greater flexibility, security, data integration, and scalability. Approximately 49 million Instagram users' sensitive personal data was exposed in 2019 when Instagram's user data was breached. In this case, an unprotected AWS server connected to the internet caused the leak. Such incidents warn social media platforms to invest in robust cloud security services.


For instance, In October 2019, McAfee launched McAfee MVISION Insights to help companies respond quickly to cyberattacks. To accomplish this, actionable insights are provided, and threats are pinpointed. Besides allowing the companies to track the attack, this also allows them to identify it. Thus, driving the cloud application security market revenue.


Cloud Application Security Market Segment Insights


Cloud Application Security Component Insights


The Cloud Application Security Market segmentation, based on components, includes solutions and services. The solution segment dominated the cloud application security market, accounting for 35% of market revenue. This segment is growing due to the growing adoption of corporate BYOD policies and the growing penetration of mobile devices. Moreover, the WFH trend indicates that companies are moving toward cloud solutions with greater safety and protection against cyber-attacks.


Cloud Application Security Organization Size Insights


The Cloud Application Security Market segmentation, based on organization size, includes large enterprises and medium-sized enterprises. The medium-sized enterprises category generated the most income (67.4%). Data breaches on enterprise cloud applications and increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks are expected to drive the medium-sized enterprises segment's growth at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. However, large enterprises were expected to account for a greater cloud application security market share in the forecast period. Cloud application security solutions were adopted by large enterprises early because they use a large number of cloud-based applications.


Cloud Application Security Industry Vertical Insights


The Cloud Application Security Market data, based on industry verticals, includes government and defense, BFSI, healthcare, I.T. and telecom, retail, and others. The I.T. and telecom segment dominated the market, accounting for 32% of market revenue. A surge in BYOD and work-from-home trends has prompted IT companies to prioritize cloud security services and solutions. While public cloud deployments are very important for businesses with low privacy concerns, hybrid cloud deployments are becoming more popular in IT due to their scalability and flexibility. As a result, IT organizations have become increasingly dependent on hybrid cloud security solutions to balance the workloads of both public and private clouds. Enterprises are adopting cloud security solutions in response to increasing instances of cloud-based cyberattacks and cloud-native threats.
