Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS) is a cloud-based technology that is ever-growing and developing. It helps in backing up or storing data, recovering them when needed, and accessing and managing them easily. It is mainly a more organized and effective data management solution that helps business organizations handle large amounts of data and protect them from leaking. DPaaS is an indispensable tool today for data protection and safety because the amount of data generated every day by organizations is huge. This has resulted in a significant surge in the demand for and adoption of such effective and convenient solutions. These cloud-based solutions effectively help protect sensitive data from being stolen by hackers or from any other cyber threats. 

Also, the new concept of working from home and remote working has also influenced its high demand and adoption to protect and prevent data from ransomware and other phishing attacks. As a result, the global DPaaS market is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period.

Market Segment

Insight by Service

According to the service type, the global DPaaS market is divided into three major categories namely, Storage as a Service (SaaS), backup as a service (BaaS), and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

Out of these three segments, it is the DRaaS segment that is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the growing demand in users for data privacy and protection as well as for the remote hardware setup. 

It is also attributed to the diverse range of benefits it offers to different business organizations including offering the best recovery solutions. All these fuel the growth of this segment in particular as well as the global DPaaS market as a whole.

Insight by Deployment

According to the deployment type, which is mainly cloud-based, the global DPaaS market is divided into public, private, and hybrid cloud segments. Out of these three segments, the hybrid cloud segment is expected to grow at a much higher rate than the other two segments. This is primarily because of the benefits it provides, such as flexibility, practicality, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness in managing a given workload, over and above providing higher data privacy and improved security.

Most importantly, this type of solution helps small organizations and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to manage and support all their business operations most effectively. This results in higher adoption of such solutions in this specific segment, which will, in turn, propel the growth of the global DPaaS market during the forecast period. 

Insight by Organisation Size

The global DPaaS market can also be divided according to the size of the organization namely, small and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises. Out of these segments, is the small and medium-sized business segment that is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period. This is because there is a higher demand for cloud-based solutions and their usage in this particular sector since they usually do not have the appropriate IT infrastructure to share or store large volumes of data. These solutions are not only cost-effective alternatives but are also most effective in protecting data and ensuring its proper management.

Some other notable factors that are driving the adoption rate of these solutions among SMEs are the rise in the possibilities and threat of data theft, the growing demand for more active backup services, and the growing need for data preservation in the long term.

Insight by End-User

According to the end-users, the global DPaaS market can be divided into IT, telecom, power, energy, utilities, banking, finance, manufacturing, insurance, retail, healthcare, government,and public sector. Out of all these sectors, the telecom and IT segment is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period. This is due to the rising demand for data backup, privacy, security, and compliance in this specific industry vertical. DPaaS solutions enable this sector to allow businesses to access data safely and quickly, which, in turn, offers higher scalability.

Market Trend

There are several significant trends noticed in the global DPaaS market over the past couple of years. This is helping in shaping this specific landscape. One significant trend is the growing adoption of hybrid cloud solutions by several businesses. In addition,AI is also used in data analytics and protection. There are several other technologies used as well in DPaaS solutions, such as blockchain technology. These help in reducing the cost of operation, increasing the level of performance and analyzing and managing large volumes of data most effectively.

Businesses do not need to invest unnecessarily in costly infrastructure for data protection and storage. This saves a considerable amount of money not needing any hardware, software, or professional IT personnel for data management. It offers higher scalability and flexibility as businesses can use more or less of the services according to their current data management needs and protection requirements. So can align their capabilities in terms of data protection according to their changing needs.

The security systems are made more robust now to ensure the stored data is well protected from unauthorized access, hacking, and theft, thereby ensuring compliance with the set standards and regulations for data privacy according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

More and more tasks regarding data protection are now outsourced to efficient providers which simplifies data management. With the time and money saved, organizations can now focus on other important areas to develop their core competencies without needing to put too much effort into the technical aspects of data protection as this is managed by professionals.

The disaster recovery abilities of the DPaaS solutions allow business continuity enabling the organizations to recover and restore data to resume their operations quickly after a disaster such as system failure or data loss.
