SSL VPN Market Research, 2030
The global ssl vpn market size was valued at $4.6 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $12.6 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2021 to 2030.
Secure socket layer (SSL) is a cryptogenic protocol for securing online interaction and data access in a standard web browser. Organizations' privacy and data security are vulnerable to external threats, raising serious concerns about user web security. SSL tunnels send data over a secure network, increasing data safety and security. Clientless, thin-client, and full network access or tunnel mode are the three ways to access it. Endpoint security compliance, cache cleaning, ease of use, and improved performance are just a few of the features of SSL VPN industry.
The growing demand for flexible and cost-effective security solutions in today's world fuels the demand for SSL VPN, particularly in the IT software industry. In addition, increased performance of products, as well as their ease of use, drive the adoption of SSL VPN across a wide range of end-use verticals. However, a lack of host security software installations on endpoint devices, as well as the vulnerability of the SSL protocol to external threats, limit the SSL VPN market's growth. On the contrary, rapid advancements in connected technologies and end-user integration of cloud-based SSL solutions to improve overall performance are anticipated to propel the growth of the market. Moreover, increase in cloud-based operations in various industries, such as banking, government, and others is anticipated to provide a potential growth opportunity for the SSL VPN industry.
The report focuses on growth prospects, restraints, and trends of the global SSL VPN market analysis. The study provides Porter’s five forces analysis to understand the impact of various factors such as bargaining power of suppliers, competitive intensity of competitors, threat of new entrants, threat of substitutes, and bargaining power of buyers on the global SSL VPN market outlook.
The SSL VPN market is segmented on the basis of component, mode of remote access, enterprise size, and region. Depending on component, it is fragmented into software and services. By mode of remote access, the market is differentiated into tunnel, thin-client, and clientless modes. The enterprise size is segmented into large enterprise and small & medium enterprises. Region-wise, the market is analysed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Tunnel segment acquired the major share of SSL VPN market. For users connecting via full tunnel mode, the traffic of the Internet will apply security scanning to it and will verify the availability if antivirus on remote users’ device. Further, availability of “Split Tunnel” feature for VPN connections makes full tunnel mode a preferred choice among end users.
North America accounted for the major share of SSL VPN market. The region witnesses huge technological growth in the recent years, which requires strict regulatory compliance to protect the valuable information. This has led to increased adoption of SSL VPN products in the region to effectively monitor cybercrimes and external as well as internal threats.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Work-from-home (WFH) and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) models have been implemented as a result of the sudden outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the subsequent implementation of lockdowns. As a result of this shift in corporate culture, data has become more vulnerable, facilitating the widespread adoption of SSL VPN by a number of large and small businesses (SMEs). Moreover, organizations' shift to cloud-based services accelerated the growing digitization trend during the pandemic. The growing reliance of businesses on cloud services raised concerns about connection security and authenticity. SSL VPN services became even more important as a result of this. Thus, the demand for SSL VPN solutions has grown significantly in tandem with the growth of cloud-based services during the pandemic.
Top Impacting Factors
Rise in Number of Cyber-attacks
Organizations are expanding their businesses at a notable pace, owing to technological advancements, supportive government legislations, and high internet penetration globally. However, this has made company data highly vulnerable to external threats, such as spyware, malware, viruses, Trojans, and others. The number of cyber-attacks or hacking attempts across the globe has significantly increased over the last few years, which has urged organizations to adopt secure and more private ways to offer remote access to a company’s private data. Thus, SSL VPN is a viable solution, and hence has witnessed significant adoption over the years.
Growing Awareness about Data Security among Organizations
Data security and management is a crucial part of any organization. Security breaches and threats from viruses, malware, and others have urged organizations to provide attention towards security, confidentiality, and integrity of data as well as information shared across connected network. Further, growing awareness about user credential related risks, spilt tunneling, vulnerability to keystroke loggers, and loss of sensitive information are expected to increase adoption of revised and updated SSL VPN technologies.
Growing Demand for Cloud-based Security Solutions
Increase in need for low-cost, convenient, and flexible security solutions and rise in awareness about IT security fuel the adoption of cloud-based SSL VPN solutions and services among end users, owing to easy availability of the products and improved performance. These factors, as a result promoting the SSL VPN market growth.
