File Integrity Monitoring Market Analysis

The File Integrity Monitoring Market size is estimated at USD 1.02 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 2.26 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 17.28% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The file integrity monitoring market is a service that enables organizations to test and check operating system (OS), database, and application software files to determine whether or not they have been tampered with or corrupted documents, photos, videos, and files in a secure manner. Organizations adopt these technologies to help employees avoid using consumer-based file-sharing applications and software to store, access, and manage to ensure data security.

  • For instance, enterprises' workstation dominantly uses Windows, Mac OS, and Linux OS. In contrast, their employees utilize mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, with Android and iOS as the dominant operating systems. Due to the widespread adoption of cloud services and an increasing number of active directory users, admins find it difficult to manage privileges and rights granted to the people inside the organization. This has led to an increased vulnerability, which could be disastrous for the organization.
  • File integrity monitoring eases the admin process and has been a critical tool in combating cyber threats organizations have recently faced. File integrity monitoring solution monitors the activity of the shared files and is also responsible for timely alerting the admin to minimize the threats.
  • The key issue that the file integrity monitoring market resolves is privilege abuses. Privilege abuse is when the policies of the user within the network are not updated, due to which the user's credentials are used to access the files and then make changes to them.
  • The landscape of file monitoring and integrity management solution has been changing rapidly. Earlier, the systems admin used to manually grant access and check for vulnerabilities. Still, as the number of events increased, it became impossible for the admins to identify the treats. This gave rise to Netwrix, Lepide, and Dell solutions, which offered standalone solutions for the market. However, these solutions limited the number of users and managed many events.
  • The antivirus providers, like Kaspersky and McAfee, realized the importance of this additional layer of security and integrated the solution into their antivirus solutions. However, companies like IBM and SolarWinds have solutions that meet large enterprises' requirements and have advanced methodologies to identify false positives to declutter the notifications sent to the admins.
  • During the outbreak of COVID-19, cyber threats were on the rise in numerous countries. For instance, the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) announced protecting itself from cyberattacks amid the pandemic. Various countries further enhanced their efforts to increase file integrity monitoring systems.
  • Cybersecurity became a top priority during the global COVID-19 pandemic. There was an increasing dependence on digital technologies to keep the file integrity monitoring process running. Moreover, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), from 2022 to 2032, information security analyst employment is expected to grow by 32%, substantially faster than the average for all occupations.

File Integrity Monitoring Market Trends

BFSI Industry is Expected to Witness The Highest Growth

  • The BFSI sector is one of the critical infrastructure segments that suffer several data breaches and cyberattacks, owing to the large customer base that the industry serves and the financial information that is at stake. Financial service institutions have been identified to be four times more susceptible to cyberattacks when compared to other industries, which is expected to drive the demand for such solutions.
  • Moreover, active directory-based hacking on banking institutions has become the most prevalent recently, according to security provider Bit defender. Also, the need for file integrity monitoring is further emphasized by different warnings sent out by security agencies.
  • The security agencies have identified ransomware, like lockerGoga ransomware, and hacking groups, like APT15 - aka K3chang, Mirage, Vixen Panda, GREF, and Playful Dragon, have been most prevalent in attacking the active directory of the BFSI institutions.
  • Furthermore, Data breaches lead to an exponential rise in costs and the loss of valuable customer information. For instance, in June 2023, EpiSource LLC notified the Attorney General of California of the data breach after identifying that unauthorized access to sensitive customer data had occurred due to suspicious activity in the company's Amazon Web Services environment. Additionally, in May 2023, the Federal Trade Commission announced that Amazon would pay two distinct fines for privacy violations: USD 25 million for allegedly failing to delete children's data and USD 5.8 million for limiting access to Ring security videos for employees and contractors.
  • To secure their IT processes and systems, secure critical customer data, and comply with government regulations, private and public banking institutes focus on implementing the latest technology to prevent cyber attacks. Additionally, with greater customer expectations, increasing technological capabilities, and regulatory requirements, banking institutions are pushed to adopt a proactive approach to security.

Asia-Pacific to Witness Fastest Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is estimated to present lucrative opportunities for the market shortly. Factors such as the increased need for security in growing industries, the need to protect high-value targets in organizations, and regulatory compliance are driving the adoption of file integrity monitoring solutions in the region.
  • Small and medium-sized businesses are transforming into a hybrid cloud environment in Asia-Pacific from the legacy on-premise environment. Numerous factors have triggered this, as the hybrid cloud environment provides scalability and security concerns.
  • Asia-Pacific countries are being used as launchpads for cyber attacks, either as vulnerable hotbeds of unsecured infrastructures where numerous computers can be infected easily for large-scale attacks or as centers for a single point of attack to gain access to the hubs' global connections. So the demand for file integrity monitoring systems is rising in this region.
  • China's controversial Cyber Security Law (CSL) is aimed at protecting China's networks and private user information with a new law. It includes power and utility providers, transportation services, and financial institutions, including any foreign company that is a key supplier to a 'critical' sector or holds significant amounts of information on Chinese citizens, increasing the market demand in this country.
