Global Application Control Software Market – Dynamics

Increasing Breach of Data and Privacy Driving Growth of the Application Control Software Market

Consistent increase in the breach of data and privacy across the globe can be attributed to rising IT vulnerabilities within enterprises. Vulnerabilities represent security gaps that could be abused by attackers to damage applications, trigger a denial of service, and/or steal potentially sensitive information. This has resulted in payout of millions of dollars for settlement of the attack on the data. Increasing concerns on rising number of vulnerabilities due to cyber-attacks on enterprises is driving the growth of the market.

Lack of Transparency within Cloud-based Deployment of Application Control Software  

Although the demand for cloud-based deployment has increased across the globe, the skepticism with regards to cloud-based security management solutions from end-users specific to data protection and fraud has increased. In the SANS Vulnerability Management Survey, the main issues for adoption of cloud application security management solution includes:

  • Lack of transparency in the remediation status of vulnerabilities
  • Not having real-time visibility into vulnerabilities and associated remediation status
  • Lack of status updates and validation of remediation

However, increased transparency and real-time information with regards to cloud-based deployment would reduce the impact of the restraint.

North America to Dominate the Global Application Control Software Market

In terms of region, the global application control software market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the application control software market during the forecast period due to strong adoption of security solutions by small & medium enterprises to protect end-user data. The region also has very strong policies and regulations with regards to data breach which is also pushing the growth of the market within the region.
