Digital rights management refers to the technologies and processes that are applied to describe digital content and identify its content. The primary purpose of DRM is to control the access, use, and distribution, and thereby protect the interests of the copyright holders in the online environment. It should be noted though that DRM technology can also be used for nefarious purposes such as infringing on privacy, personal profiling, price discrimination based on personally identifiable information, and obstructing the development of open source software.

As the society gets more digital, hacking and security-related incidents are bound to spike. Each year, millions of credentials are stolen and shared freely within the hacker community. Hackers can buy information and bide their time until they use it in conjunction with another attack to potentially cause even more damage to the organization. Government credentials have seen massive breaches on platforms such as Yahoo, LinkedIn, Dropbox, or Ashley Madison mega-breach flooding the dark market with over one billion records. Therefore, the demand for digital rights management systems has increased.

Increase in internet usage, growth in smart devices, and the increasing adoption of digital rights management solutions among various verticals are further expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.
