Identity and access management (IAM) services that are provided through the cloud and are billed on a subscription basis are referred to as Identity as a Service (IDaaS). In addition to its capability to automate a range of user account-related tasks, identity as a service offers administrators protection from security issues. By standardizing and automating essential identity, authentication, and permission management components, it lowers business risk and saves time and money. Identity as a service combines the benefits of cloud computing with several services, such as ID verification, user access control, multi-factor authentication, and compliance monitoring. Identity as a service is used to manage and authenticate user IDs. It also helps to stop hackers and unauthorized individuals from obtaining confidential data. The primary purpose of identity as a service is to offer authorized employees suitable access to data, software programs, or other resources at the proper moment. As a centralized cloud-based system created by identity specialists, identity as a service is significantly easier to implement.

Driving Factors

Since Identity as a Service solutions use an as-a-service approach, some features are supplied to other businesses via a third-party remote connection. It is the opposite of a task that is carried out internally and on-site. Many governments and financial institutions are currently encouraging digital payments to reduce operating expenses and increase transaction visibility. As a result, the integration of digitalized payment systems into banking and government services is likely to increase demand for identity as a service shortly. Furthermore, increased government and corporate business spending on security solutions to ensure regulatory compliance and prevent identity theft is likely to drive growth. These regulatory compliances are expected to be met by the strategically applied identity as a service. The system provides features for ensuring allowed and authenticated data access. As a result, it helps to prevent both internal and external data misuse within the company. As of right now, the risk of data protection is equivalent to the penalties for data breaches. Rising regulatory compliance everywhere is therefore anticipated to increase the market share for identity as a service.


Restraining Factors        

Banking applications are used by a large number of people all around the world. Failure or violation of user privacy in the case of breaches in the banking industry is a serious issue. The financial services sector has already embraced cutting-edge information and physical security technologies. On the other hand, worries about unprotected endpoints like PCs, laptops, and mobile devices are associated with growing internal and external user populations, as well as expanding transaction volume and complexity. As they offer simple access that may be used for a multitude of attack vectors, these endpoints are the main targets of cyberattacks. Users are therefore not aware of sophisticated threats and system weaknesses.


Market Segmentation

By Component Insights

The single sign-on segment dominates the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

On the basis of component, the global Identity as a Service market is segmented into single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), provisioning, privacy management, password management, and others. Among these, the single sign-on segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share more than 38.6% over the forecast period. Single sign-on solves essential business challenges in an organization by increasing security and compliance, improving usability and productivity, and reducing IT expenses. The proliferation of cloud apps and services in companies, often alongside on-premises counterparts, has resulted in serious fragmentation difficulties. It's a challenge for both IT and people. IT must manage the enterprise's numerous programs while also dealing with shadow IT. As a result, employees must log in to and navigate between multiple applications and websites every day to do their tasks. Single sign-on comes to the organization's aid in resolving enterprise fragmentation challenges. Furthermore, single sign-on reduces the number of attack surfaces.


By Deployment Insights

The public cloud segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.

On the basis of deployment, the global identity as a service market is segmented into public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud. Among these, the public cloud segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. The public cloud deployment makes resources like applications, storage, virtual servers, and hardware available to client companies. You can subscribe to the public cloud's services or use free services to access them. Utilizing a public cloud has some advantages, including ease of use and deployment that is simple. Additionally, there are no duties involved in maintaining the infrastructure, and the deployment's initial cost is inexpensive. As the best deployment framework for managed services like business services, network services, and data center services, the public cloud is growing in popularity.
