Growing Trend of Outsourcing of Security Solutions Boosts Global Cloud Access Security Brokers Market

In the cloud security domain, CASB vendors are fast gaining the status of protectors of organizations’ critical data. The various solutions offered by CASB vendors include risk and compliance management, control and monitoring, data leakage prevention, cloud data encryption, and tokenization. With technological advancements and lack of storage infrastructure among small and medium enterprises, there has been a growing trend of saving information in cloud silos. The rising adoption of cloud services has raised security concerns, thereby leading to a positive influence on the growth of the global CASB market. The continuous revamping of guidelines related to cloud security by regulatory authorities has made it difficult for cloud storage vendors to manage cloud security platforms. As a result, outsourcing of security solutions has emerged as a foremost trend, resulting in the growth of the global CASB market.

Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are the key deployment types in the global CASB market. At low operating costs, complete business functionality can be achieved through SaaS. As a result, CASB deployment through SaaS platforms has registered a large number of implementations.

The global CASB market has been segmented into the Middle East and Africa, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Europe. Since the inception of CASB technologies, North America has dominated the overall market. During the period between 2016 and 2024, the region is anticipated to maintain its lead and expand at a CAGR of 18.4% due to the rapid expansion of cloud-enabled services across the U.S.
