Encryption software is an application platform that helps in encryption and decryption of a data stream at rest or in transit. It helps in protecting the content of file, network packet and application and provides security from unauthorized users. In addition, many organizations are adopting encryption software to protect digital data confidentiality as it is stored on the organizations systems and transmitted using different network. Furthermore, encryption software provides different advantages such as increase the integrity of data and upsurge in the security of the data when an employee is working remotely. Moreover, adoption of encryption software among the SMEs for improving data security of the organization propels the growth of the market.
