The service bifurcation is expected to experience faster growth in the key management as a service market during the forecast period, because, after procuring key management solutions, companies require maintenance and after-sales support and training on using these solutions.

During the historical period (2014–2019), large enterprises generated higher revenue in the key management as a service market, as they have a complex network infrastructure, which creates a high demand for key management software. In addition, these companies are rapidly focusing on digital transformation and adopting cloud computing, and they also have a strong need to comply with regulations and encrypt their files and folders.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) would observe the highest CAGR in the key management as a service market in the years to come, on account of the stepping up of digitization efforts, rising requirement for cloud solutions, increasing awareness about cyber attacks and ways to counter them, and improving key management lifecycle processes. Fujitsu Limited, a Japanese multination IT firm, selected Thales SA’s Cloud HSM service and key management platform in February 2020. While the HSM service is being integrated to support public key infrastructure (PKI) security, the purpose behind implementing the key management platform is securing the lifecycle management of customers’ cryptographic keys.

Key Players Undertaking Partnerships for Continued Growth

Major key management as a service market players have engaged in a number of partnerships lately, in order to enhance their business growth prospects.
