Increase in number of smart devices is driving the demand for secure connectivity. Thereby, the demand for secure networks is on the rise among individuals across the globe. This is a major factor that boosts the adoption of cloud VPN among the IT & telecommunication sector, which in turn is expected to drive the growth of the global cloud VPN market. Proliferation of virtual appliances among various organizations to increase their product offerings is anticipated to rise in adoption of cloud. High adoption of cloud services for virtual appliances is also a major factor expected to propel the growth of the global cloud VPN market. Moreover, rise in awareness of cloud VPN benefits such as encrypted network traffic, distributed global IP addresses, deployable private servers, manage network activity, and its ability to conduct geo-targeting, and quality assurance are some factors that are further expected to drive the growth of the global market. However, dearth of technical skills is a major factor that hampers the cloud VPN market growth. Furthermore, rise in number of SME cloud-based service providers is an opportunistic factor of the global cloud VPN market.
