Some of the companies are integrating technologies such as robotics with IAM. single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) are the two most common systems used in IAM. Hence, the managed IAM segment is expected to be a larger segment during the forecast perioed.

Fastest growth in healthcare vertical

The banking, financial Services, and insurance (BFSI) vertical is expected to dominate the MSS market with the largest market size, while the healthcare vertical is the fastest-growing vertical during the forecast period. MSS are expected to help the BFSI vertical in keeping the confidentiality of sensitive data, which will, in turn, help in maintaining the overall security posture. The biggest advantage of using MSS in the BFSI vertical is 24/7/365 monitoring, which results in immediate incident response and remediation in case of a security breach. The BFSI vertical is very careful about the security of the sensitive data of its customers. Hence, for enhancing the protection of online services from cyber attacks, companies operating in the BFSI vertical are adopting MSS . In the healthcare vertical, MSS such as medical device penetration testing, network segmentation for medical equipment, device inventory and risk analysis, and medical device risk assessments will play an integral role in securing entities related to patients as well as hospital data. Moreover, MSS also helps healthcare organisations comply with stringent Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliances.
