Identity & Access Management - IAM Market Size and Industry Growth Drivers, 2016 - 2021

About IAM

Identity & Access Management (IAM) allows companies to set up different access to data and information for their employees within the IT infrastructure. Employees have varying authority, responsibilities, and competency, so it is important for an IAM system to be set up to control who can access different information. Access to a file is a simple example - some users may have the rights to edit it, some can only view, whereas others don't have any access at all. Systems used for Identity & Access management include single sign-on systems, multi-factor authentication, and privileged access management (PAM). IAM technologies also provide the ability to securely store identity and profile data. IAM systems can be deployed on-premises, in a hybrid cloud, or provided through a cloud-based subscription model.

IAM Growth Drivers

The Identity & Access Management - IAM Market is becoming one of the fastest-growing Cybersecurity Industries. The acceleration in IAM Market growth is driven by increased needs for IT security, new applications for B2C and IoT security, new regulations (e.g. GDPR), and a changing enterprise IT environment. Many data breaches occur due to Identity theft or privilege misuse. Effective Identity & Access Management lowers the chances of these breaches significantly. New regulations such as GDPR or the CCPA impose stricter obligations regarding data security, as well as the need for users to be able to delete their personal information. In addition, IoT devices often have access to identities, and extra security will be required to avoid the misuse of devices. This IAM opportunity has the chance to be massive, so the IAM Market may explode over the next several years.
