Just How Big Is the Identity Access Management Market?

AvatarWritten by | Security

Organizations today realize the importance of Identity Access Management. Driven by government regulations like HIPPA and SOX, companies of all sizes strive to provide employee access to do their jobs but still maintain the privacy and accuracy required by law.

A recent IDC study forecasts the worldwide identity and access market to increase to $7.4 billion in 2019. Revenues in 2014 were just $4.8 billion – an 8% CAGR. Pete Lindstrom, IDC research director for IAM, says the “market drivers include the convergence of mobility, social networking, big data analytics and an increasing demand for Cloud and SaaS delivery of traditional IT software and services.”

IDC identifies IAM submarkets as:

  • Single sign-on
  • Authentication
  • Provisioning
  • Privileged access
  • Legacy authentication

Single sign-on, privileged access management and strong authentication show the strongest growth rates.
