Remote access solutions allow users to access devices and networks remotely. They offer secured connections to servers, applications, and workstations through web-based portals, virtual private networks (VPNs), and terminal services. Enterprises use remote access solutions to allow employees, vendors, and partners to securely access corporate applications and data from any location using laptops, tablets, or smartphones. This gives flexibility to employees and reduces operational costs for organizations by reducing the need for desktop infrastructure and hardware at physical work locations. Devices such as desktops and servers can be hosted at centralized data centers instead of at each branch location.
The global remote access solution market is estimated to be valued at US$ 24.09 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Bring your own device (BYOD) policy allows employees to use their personal devices such as smartphones and laptops to access corporate applications and data. This offers flexibility to employees and reduces costs related to device procurement for organizations. According to Coherent Market Insights, around 63% of organizations implemented a formal BYOD policy in 2021. Remote access solutions ensure that these personal devices meet the minimum security requirements set by IT departments before granting access to business-critical systems and information. Thus, rise in BYOD is increasing the demand for remote access solutions among organizations.
Another factor fueling the remote access solution market growth is the rise in cyber-attacks on networks and endpoints. As more devices and systems get connected remotely, the risk of security breaches also increases. Remote access solutions offer features such as multi-factor authentication, encryption of transferred data, endpoint compliance checks, and network access controls that enhance security. They prevent unauthorized access to corporate resources by rogue devices and applications. The growing need for enhanced security amid increasing sophisticated cyber threats is thus driving adoption of remote access solutions among enterprises.
Remote Access Solution Market can be segmented based on component, access technique, application, end user and region. Based on component, the market is segmented into software, services.
