Encryption Software Market Growth & Trends
The global encryption software market is likely to reach USD 8.74 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., progressing at a CAGR of 16.8% during the forecast period. Software enterprises around the world are rapidly adopting encryption solutions to enhance business proficiency and improve data security. Rising concerns over data breaches and privacy compliance regulations, coupled with increasing adoption of modern technologies, including cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), virtualization, and mobility are expected to fuel product demand over the next few years.
These solutions safeguard privacy of the information stored in database and data in transit as per security requirements and compliance of any business organization. This renders information unreadable even to authorized person, thus improving the security of intimate data.
Presently, encryption has become a legal requirement for several businesses in different industries to comply with international and domestic laws. For instance, in the U.S., the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA) makes it mandatory for organizations to safeguard consumer confidentiality or non-public personal data, which calls for securing data and is estimated to catapult the growth of the encryption software market over the forecast period.
Additionally, an organization’s reputation or brand image is a critical part of its marketing mix and hence requires strong protection. Data security is critical as a lot of confidential customer records are at risk of being leaked in seconds. It is imperative in maintaining customer loyalty and protecting enterprises’ brand reputation. Hence, the adoption of security solutions is on a rise to prevent any incidence of data loss, theft, or leak.
