The high demand for data protection to be more cost-effective is currently the key driver promoting the providers of data protection as a service. Coupled with the growing need for disaster recovery applications, players in the data protection as a service market are poised to become some of the more sought-after entities in the IT industry. Their ability to store critical data safely and remotely provides one of the better disaster recovery management methods.

Additionally, providers of data protection as a service can currently offer these services at lower prices thanks to the falling costs of cloud-based data storage. The intensely competitive cloud computing scenario is allowing end users to avail quality services at lower prices than before, including DPaaS.

However, the key concern of questionable data security and privacy issues are still a key concern for individuals and companies seeking to avail data protection as a service models. This threat to the market is expected to fizzle out over time as stronger encryption methods and secure storage technologies come into the picture.

The above factors, along with others, are responsible for the global market for data protection as a service to be projected at a whopping CAGR of 30.1% from 2016 to 2024. While currently at a relatively slower pace, the growth rate is expected to rise rapidly over time.
