Data Exfiltration Techniques Market Research, 2031

The global data exfiltration techniques market was valued at $69.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $217.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2022 to 2031.

The movement of sensitive data from inside the organization to outside without authorization, is indicated by data exfiltration. This process can be carried out deliberately or accidentally through malware over a network. There are various techniques performed by cyber criminals for data exfiltration. It can be difficult to detect data exfiltration as the transfer or moving of data within and outside a company’s network is involved. Due to increase in the number of smartphone users, enterprises are adopting data exfiltration techniques for the protection of sensitive information.

Increase in online malware and misuse of the internet driving the data exfiltration techniques market growth. The malware infiltrate’s the data to an external server controlled by the outsider, who may then sell it or publish it. Hence, data exfiltration prevention and detection require an organization to have an adaptive security culture and solutions that utilize a spectrum of observables and indicators to assess the plausibility of various scenarios. In addition, the surge in the incidents of data loss in the on-premise environment and the rise in sophisticated cyber threats for critical information theft. Thus, these factors drives the of the data exfiltration techniques market size growth. However, lack of standards and device compatibility issues and lack of skilled professionals in data exfiltration techniques market hampering the growth of the credit card issuance market size. On the contrary, surge in demand for cloud-based cyber security solutions will provide major lucrative opportunities for growth of the data exfiltration techniques market.

Market Landscape and Trends

The growing need for security against increasing bot traffic, along with the rise in the number of smartphone users has led enterprises to adopt data exfiltration solutions for the protection of their sensitive information. Moreover, the small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) are gaining a high traction in the market, as they are more targeted by internal and external data breaches. With the adoption of data exfiltration techniques, organizations can effectively maintain and secure their critical information from data breaches. Thus, data exfiltration techniques help organizations optimize employees' productivity, protect sensitive data, applications, and comply with stringent regulations. In addition, technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence in data exfiltration techniques market is major growth factor. Furthermore, misuse of internet, online malwares, surge in the incidents of data loss in the on premise environment and growing refinement levels of data breaches are some of the major factors, contributing to the growth of data exfiltration techniques market share.

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in online malware and misuse of the internet  

Data exfiltration occurs when malware and/or a malicious actor carries out an unauthorized data transfer from a computer. It is also commonly called data extrusion or data exportation. Furthermore, it is also considered a form of data theft. Moreover, it can be conducted by outsiders, who penetrate the network in order to steal user credentials, intellectual property, and company secrets. In addition, outsider attacks usually start with the injection of malware onto an endpoint such as a computer or mobile device that is connected to the corporate network. Further, the malware infiltrate’s the data to an external server controlled by the outsider, who may then sell it or publish it. Hence, data exfiltration prevention and detection require an organization to have an adaptive security culture and solutions that utilize a spectrum of observables and indicators to assess the plausibility of various scenarios. Therefore, these are the major growth factors for the data exfiltration techniques market.

The surge in the incidents of data loss in the on-premise environment

The shift to remote work over the past few months has increased the need for organizations to re-evaluate their security and risk management practices. With employees accessing corporate data at times on home computers or sharing and collaborating in new ways, organizations could be at greater risk for data leak or other risks. For instance, to help companies with the visibility they need and better protect their data, in March 2020, HP Inc announced the launch of three new security solution that provides threat product for remote workforces as a countermeasure to support countries across the world experiencing lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic. The solutions include HP Proactive Security, HP Sure Click Enterprise, and HP Pro Security Edition. These solutions allow users to run real-time protection with task-level isolation and non-persistent virtual machines avoiding data breach, and data exfiltration. Therefore, these are the major factors propelling the market growth.

The rise in sophisticated cyber threats for critical information theft

Data exfiltration occurs in various ways and through multiple attack methods, mostly on the internet or on a corporate network. The techniques cybercriminals use to extract data from organizations’ networks and systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. These include anonymous connections to servers, Domain Name System (DNS) attacks, Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) tunneling, Direct Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, file less attacks, and remote code execution. Therefore, the rise in sophisticated cyber threats for critical information theft is the major driving factor for the data exfiltration techniques market.

Lack of standards and device compatibility issues

Data exfiltration is a malicious process where cybercriminals (such as external actors) or insiders (such as employees, contractors, and third-party suppliers) accidentally or deliberately steal or move data from inside to outside a company's perimeter without authorization. These scenarios occur when a user accesses information through an authorized channel and moves the data to an insecure local device. For instance, someone can use cameras, computers, smartphones, or other specialized devices to capture data for exfiltration, either by downloading existing files from cloud services or copying the information into new files. Any files transferred to an insecure device are at high risk for data exfiltration. Therefore, these are the major factors limiting the growth of the data exfiltration techniques market.

Lack of skilled professionals 

Organizations need to minimize the risk of human error that may result in data loss or theft. Since employees can make mistakes that attackers can leverage to their advantage. A user could unsuspectingly download an infected malware file, transmit their credentials through a phishing campaign, or otherwise neglect to secure their personal computer or other devices. Hence, it is essential to regularly train and educate employees on the latest security measures to avoid human error. For instance, organizations should ensure that each person understands how to identify a suspicious email. Furthermore, the organizations should also make sure that employees know how to report a suspicious email so the security team can investigate and take any necessary action right away. To ensure appropriate security, organizations must educate their employees. Therefore, these are the major factors limiting the growth of the data exfiltration techniques market.

Surge in demand for cloud-based cyber security solutions

The integration of cloud-based solutions in data exfiltration techniques is expected to provide a major growth opportunity for the market. Business operations leveraging the cloud services expose businesses with new categories of data exfiltration risks, including instances where insecure access of cloud site features by the administrators, and employees would allow hackers to requisition virtual machines, deploy malicious code and thereby initiate outbound transmission of sensitive data. For instance, in February 2020, McAfee announced the launch of global managed detection and response (MDR) platform and its strategic partnership with DXC Technology to leverage the MDR solution to proactively detect and resolve security incidents of its customers faster. The platform provides services including threat hunting, forensics and investigation, and complete managed endpoint threat detection and response. Therefore, these factors will provide major lucrative opportunities for the  data exfiltration techniques market forecast.
