These solutions safeguard the valuable data of the businesses from commercial espionage, cyber-attacks, fraudulent activities, and privacy breaches. In addition, these encryption solutions also prevent unauthorized access, and provide advanced and customized encryption for superior protection of data.
Further, these encryption solutions are expansively embraced for provisioning of continual security to large organizational content accessed and transmitted across diverse devices regardless of location. These encryption solutions can be customized to address the business needs of the SMBs and enterprises and are easily deployed on the cloud and on-premises. Currently, hosted encryption software is largely being adopted by the users to comprehensively secure their content from threats and perils of loss. Further, the commencement and provision of these prevalent encryption solutions has enabled the encryption software vendors, third-party providers and cloud vendors to offer exclusively customized encryption solutions precisely addressing the needs of the businesses. Thus, encryption plays the crucial role in protecting the data, which forms the most valuable and sensitive assets for the companies, along with securing the privacy of its employees.
The major vendors of the global encryption software market are Microsoft Corporation, Symantec Corporation, Intel Corporation, and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. The major forces driving this market are the presence of a dynamic business environment, increasing cyber-attacks, growing concern about data loss among the companies, and obligatory need for adhering with standards.
MarketsandMarkets expects the global encryption software market to grow from $1.85 billion in 2014 to $4.82 billion by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.1% during the forecast period 2014–2019
