The global software defined perimeter (SDP) market was valued at USD 6.92 billion in 2023. The market is projected to be worth USD 8.62 billion in 2024 and reach USD 50.97 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 24.9% during the forecast period (2024-2032). A software defined perimeter (SDP) is a security framework that provides secured access to internet connected equipment, including routers and servers from external users. SDP works regardless of whether assets reside in the cloud or on-premise, or whether the users are working remotely or working from on-site.

SDP protects SME’s and large enterprises network infrastructure from cyber-attacks, as it primarily authenticates the identity of user and device before giving them access to the organization’s data servers.

Furthermore, organizations are adopting cloud-based services to enhance protection by deploying security gateways over the on-premise or cloud infrastructure. The need for secure connection for remote working was the major reason that the adoption of SDP was spiked during the pandemic. The software defined perimeters secure hybrid and private clouds, thus minimizing the potential network attack surface and inhibiting port and vulnerability scanning by malicious players. Additionally, enterprises focus on adopting cloud-based technology to eliminate VPN pain points, avoiding added costs and complexities. For instance,

  • January 2023, InstaSafe, a provider of cloud-based security solution, partnered with iValue InfoSolutions, a technology services and solutions provider in South-East Asia and India. Through this partnership InstaSafe aims to expand its product offerings by utilizing iValue's network throughout India. This partnership will enable iValue's existing customers to securely access business applications and servers across on-premise and multi-cloud environments, excluding VPNs.

Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) Market Growth Factors

Deployment of SDP Solutions in BYOD and IoT Aids the Market Growth across the Globe

The COVID-19 pandemic dispersed workforces by mobilizing their new remote workforce and securing the network in the new environment. The remote workforce creates a rise in cyber threats. To reduce the cyber threats, enterprises are adopting SDP/Zero Trust architecture into services, data and their associated identities.

Due to adoption of remote working environment, various organizations brought the role of BYOD, allowing users to access services or data on their personal, smartphones, and other devices, which increases the risk of data breaches. BYOD devices require stringent access procedures due to security concerns. The adoption of SDP offers access to BYOD devices and secures sessions on those devices. Additionally, various organizations focus on adopting software defined perimeter solutions to ensure data theft protection for remote employees.

Moreover, many organizations IT and operation technology (OT) teams are rapidly deploying software-defined perimeter technology and other zero-trust strategies by separating IoT data from the hidden and corporate networks. For instance,

  • NetCloud Perimeter, a cloud-based substitute to Virtual Private Network (VPN), allows businesses to deploy virtual overlay networks that connect all IoT devices. It offers cloud-based security to small businesses to eliminate the hardware, difficulty, and operational expenses of traditional WANs.

Thus, deployment of the solutions in BYOD and IoT environment favors the global software defined perimeter market growth during the forecast period.


Lack of Qualified Vendors with a Complete Solution Restrains the Market Growth

Many organizations struggle to implement complete zero-trust security solution, even though organizations have prominent focus on adoption of zero-trust strategy.

These organizations implement partial zero trust security solutions and allow them complete access to their network infrastructure and digital assets. Moreover, half of the respondents can't authenticate users and devices continuously and struggle to monitor users’ post-authentication. For instance,

  • In September 2021 Fortinet surveyed 472 cybersecurity professionals and business leaders worldwide to understand organizations' usage in their zero-trust journey. In this survey, organizations' main challenge in developing a zero-trust strategy was the lack of qualified vendors with a complete solution.

As a result of aforementioned factors, limited availability of qualified venders could hamper the software defined perimeter (SDP) market growth.
