is essentially a subset of identity management but with a focus on securing the IT infrastructure. PIM solutions are used to secure and monitor activities in a privileged account. Apart from providing security, it is also a governance tool via which enterprises are able to conform to different regulations while preventing secure data breaches.
Increasing use of mobile devices is one factor driving the growth of the PIM market. This, coupled with the trend of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) that is being adopted by several organizations across the globe, is giving rise to the need to be able to secure confidential data and prevent employees from misusing the same. Increasing number of regulations for data security, especially for sectors such as government, healthcare, financial services, to name a few, are also driving the growth of this market.
While security solutions are being changed and updated regularly and new versions resulting from intensive research and development efforts, viruses, spyware and hackers are also evolving simultaneously and are becoming increasingly difficult to detect and control. This is proving to be a significant challenge for this market.
