Encryption software is a program that relies on data encryption algorithms to protect sensitive data at rest or in transit. It allows the encryption of the content of a data object, file, network, or application, and laptops, tablets, and removable media. It assists in providing complete data protection, maintaining integrity, and ensuring security across multiple devices and safe transportation of data. As it also aids in streamlining the operations of an organization’s applications and workflows, its demand is escalating around the world.

Encryption Software Market Trends:
Due to the growing trend of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) among enterprises, there is a significant rise in data security concerns, such as cyberattacks, data breaches, commercial espionage, and theft and losses. This represents one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for encryption software to protect sensitive data and ensure compliance worldwide. Apart from this, as enterprises are increasingly adopting cloud computing, there is a considerable need for safeguarding data. This, in confluence with the growing penetration of high-speed internet and surging sales of smartphones across the globe, is positively influencing the market. Furthermore, several industry verticals, including the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) and the healthcare sectors, are complying with payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS) and the health insurance portability and accountability act (HIPPA). These regulations require the implementation of a data security solution, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other major factors, including the expanding information and technology (IT) and telecom sector and advancements in mobile technology worldwide, are anticipated to drive the market further in the upcoming years.
