Digital Risk Protection Platform Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Digital Risk Protection Platform Market by Enterprise – SMEs, Large Enterprise for 2020 - 2030


Digital technology has metamorphosed society and people’s lives in unprecedented ways. Technological advancements are evolving on a daily basis, rapidly transforming methods of interaction amongst human beings.

As digital footprints grow, independent online identities have become mainstream. Undoubtedly, our lives have become greatly streamlined due to such advancements.

On the flip side, digital imprints have emboldened cyber criminals and hackers to leverage online platforms to initiate malicious attacks. They are discovering novel ways of targeting classified or sensitive information for personal gain.

The 21st century is replete with instances of damaging cyberattacks, with deleterious impacts across industrial verticals.

Future Market Insights’ recent study explores how the digital risk protection platforms market will pan out based on the aforementioned trends. It opines that cloud-based integrated digital risk protection platforms will acquire massive traction from 2020-2030.  

The Surge of Digitization

As businesses navigate through turbulent waters, they find themselves investing heavily in smart technologies and automated solutions. Incorporating the latest technologies has greatly assisted them in optimizing costs and enhancing operational scales. To achieve this, they increasingly utilize several technological platforms such as mobile applications and collaboration tools.

This everlasting digital footprint has heightened risks of malicious cyberattacks, jeopardizing online security. Consequently, organizations have aggrandized investments in cloud-based integrated security solutions, ensuring data safety, identity and brand value.

Furthermore, government budgets are expanding in scope to accommodate digitalization, accelerating growth of the digital risk protection platform market.

The Need for Dynamic Security Solutions

As business entities accumulate copious amounts of data, the need to ensure its security has heightened. The past decade has witnessed massive spawning of sophisticated data-theft and cyberattacks.

These usually assume the shape of malware, phishing, distributed-denial-of-service (DDOS) and ransomware attacks.

These breaches have successfully siphoned off immense volumes of critically sensitive data, endangering the survival and integrity of both business and individual entities.

Therefore, investors are collaborating with risk management solution companies to provide advanced solutions in digital risk protection platforms.

Multiple Application Opens New Avenues

The demand for ubiquitous access to information exposes any organization’s data and systems from multiple end-points and devices. The resultant risk to system integrity, data, identity and privacy, therefore, presents a formidable challenge. Besides preventing them, it is equally important to ensure early detection and analysis of attack patterns to minimize damage.

Solutions such as security operations center, database activity monitoring, privileged access management, data loss prevention, endpoint security, vulnerability management, threat detection & response and file integrity monitoring.

Such widespread applications are anticipated to propel the market forward, reaching US$ 1.9 Bn by 2030. A strong growth trajectory is predicted for the said forecast.

Budgetary Constraints and Configuration Anomalies

Several small-scale enterprises have limited budgets, attributed to small-scale business operations. Due to their restricted business, revenue inflow is comparatively on a lower scale. Consequently, their expenses are significantly low, restraining the growth of digital risk protection platforms.

Besides, several software platforms are incompatible with existing computer systems. As a result, enterprises have to incur additional expenditure on system configuration, increasing overhead costs. Additionally, incompatible firewalls may hinder system performance or further compromise the existing system.

Region Wise Analysis

North America Digital Risk Protection Platform Market

The US is expected to tower the North America digital risk protection platform market, expanding substantially at a CAGR of 7.3% throughout the forecast period. According to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency , majority of the attacks are in the form of ransomware, impacting the private sector and government alike.

In late 2018, a massive uptick in malicious activity targeting domain name systems (DNS) infrastructure, targeting more than 7 out of 10 organizations. The annual costs incurred on recovering the data amounts to US$ 654,000 across the continent. To mitigate this, organizations are investing in robust solutions.

Recently, a major augmentation in computer network compromises across Canada. These incidents included intensive reconnaissance-style scanning of target networks, followed by a compromise of improperly secured devices.

In several instances, malware was installed across these networks. These attacks occurred from June-July 2020.

Based on these aforementioned attack patterns, prominent governmental and private entities have increased spending on risk protection platforms in recent years. Future Market Insights projects the North American market to expand positively, capturing nearly a quarter of the global market share by the end of 2030.

A definite upsurge in the number of cryptocurrency attacks were witnessed 2017 onwards. According to the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, crypto-miners have become an important monetization vector for cyber-criminals, with state-sponsored agents increasingly targeting banks using attack-vectors. An example of this was the WannaCry ransomware attack in 2017, claiming over 200,000 victims.

A majority of the businesses affected were in Europe. Therefore, taking cognizance of this, the need for a stronger regulatory framework was ushered in, opening up green spaces for digital risk protection platform players. A staggering 10% CAGR is predicted for the region throughout the forecast period.
