Global Statistics Representing Consumer Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market Scenario
Customer identity and access management (CIAM) is a system that enables organizations to securely capture and manage customer identity and profile data, and control customer access to applications and services. Identity and access management systems provide a combination of features including customer registration, multi-factor authentication (MFA), self-service account management, management, and single sign-on (SSO). They secure seamless customer experience at extreme scales and performance through channels such as web, and mobile. IAM systems help organizations in the management of identities of employees, consumers, partners, contractors, and others to ensure secure and seamless services. Increasing demand in security governance, enforcement concerns, distributed systems and workforce, as well as lower quality of security services within organizations are collectively expected to boost the growth of the consumer identity and access management market.
The demand for consumer IAM systems has been rising as older systems lack the proper settings to be configured in accordance with the stated security policies and standards. In addition, growing popularity of mobiles, and increasing adoption of IoT technology are some of the key factors driving the growth of the customer IAM market. IoT is creating a variety of opportunities for the consumer IAM market. Many service providers have started incorporating various device identity and access technologies into IoT platforms to simplify security designs in IoT deployments. This situation is likely to accelerate the growth of the consumer IAM market in coming years.
Increasing incidences of cyber-attacks are significantly driving the growth of the consumer IAM market. For instance, in 2016, Uber reported that hackers stole information of over 57 million riders and drivers. Moreover, the cost associated with cybersecurity has been increasing over the years. For instance, in 2016, the U.S government spent USD 28 billion on cyber-security. Therefore, the demand for consumer IAM technology has been rising to prevent cyber-attacks by limiting access to sensitive data for unauthorized persons.
The consumer identity and access management market was valued at USD 13.56 Billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period, 2019–2026.
