Market Dynamics:

Driver: Increased adoption of IoT-based security systems and cloud computing platforms

Cloud computing technology analyzes and stores data efficiently. This computing technology has servers that are connected to cloud platforms. This enables sharing of resources, which can be accessed at any place and time using the internet. Cloud Computing is an essential part of IoT which analyzes information obtained from the sensors, increases processing power, unites the servers, and provides good storage capacity. Cloud computing is integrated with smart objects which use many sensors and helps IoT for large-scale development. IoT depends on cloud computing and both computing technologies face security threats.

Restraint: Security and privacy concerns related to unauthorized access and data breach in access control environment

An inadequate access control causes intruders to gain unauthorized access to organizational data. Intruder breaching can be attributed directly to a lack of proper access control service. This breaching can be a cause of poor monitoring of the admin privileges within an organization. Also, the third-party applications used inside the organization can introduce vulnerabilities and security breaches. An attacker can easily utilize these loopholes to breach critical organizational data. In most industries, physical and logical security are separate departments as their requirements and approaches are different. An access control service is always prone to threats from anyone with an intention to breach either physical or logical security. Even in the case of integrated IT and security systems, cyberattacks are common.

Opportunity: Adoption of ACaaS as a cost-effective and flexible solution

Access control as a service enhances end-user privacy, eliminates the need for developing complex implementation protocols, and offers data owners flexibility to switch among cloud providers or use multiple cloud providers concurrently. It relieves cloud providers from the burden of implementing complex security solutions and enables enterprises to deploy their specific access control mechanisms. Various organizations have adopted cloud-based ACaaS as there is an increase in businesses, staff, and devices. The shift from full security systems to cloud-based ACaaS has been highly successful for many organizations. According to a recent study published in January 2021 by Cynet, the cloud is the number one preferred security technology deployment strategy.

Challenge: Availability of free Access Control Services

Cloud service providers offer security as a service to organizations for managing their infrastructure and resources, helping them in cutting costs, and delivering services quickly and efficiently. A wide range of cloud services are offered by various vendors at discount prices and sometimes as bundled services for free. Additionally, free access control services are open to risks such as account or service hijacking, data loss or theft, insecure interfaces & APIs, and technology vulnerabilities, especially in shared environments. Owing to this, the availability of free access control services hampers the growth rate in access control as a service market.
