This IDC study analyzes the Japan cloud security market and forecasts the market from 2017 to 2021. The progress in digital transformation (DX) has allowed customers to access products and services at any time and from anywhere, which enables businesses to maintain customer satisfaction along with meeting individual requirements. This innovation is called omni-experience. Omni-experience innovation requires consolidating all contact points with customers and linking data using the 3rd Platform technologies, namely, social technology, mobility, Big Data and analytics, and cloud. As the core to this data linkage, websites must be able to link enterprise applications with users' device systems. Web servers and web applications that build websites are being migrated from on-premise environments to cloud in which data linkage can be done easily since data must be linked between systems. "Security violations caused by cyberattacks aimed at vulnerabilities in web applications and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks at websites on cloud are serious incidents since these websites are the core in interlinking the systems between enterprise applications and user systems. Accordingly, security vendors should promote implementing protective solutions for websites on cloud," said Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
