LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global e-mail encryption market report. This research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Banks, healthcare, and other organizations are storing their confidential data on the cloud. Hence, it is important to secure such confidential data against unauthorized access. The adoption of cloud-based services is increasing more rapidly in SMBs compared with large enterprises as cloud-based services work on a pay-per-use model. In addition, cloud-based security services offer flexibility and scalability to accommodate the varying needs of enterprises. Their features like less dependency on internal IT personnel, no licensing costs, low maintenance costs, very limited hardware infrastructure, and easier and faster implementation of IT solutions are driving SMBs toward the adoption of cloud services.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global e-mail encryption market is fragmented with the presence of many multinational vendors and small regional players. The demand for e-mail encryption solutions has risen among sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, and government due to an increase in data breaches. Some professionals, especially doctors, lawyers, and business people who have a legal and ethical responsibility to shield sensitive data, need to protect that data against intrusion.

Due to the increasing instances of data theft and government snooping, several enterprises are giving importance to e-mail encryption. This will increase the adoption of e-mail encryption solutions during the forecast period,” says Ishmeet Kaur, a lead IT security research analyst from Technavio.

The major e-mail encryption vendors have a significant customer base, and their focus is on the continuous expansion of e-mail encryption technology deployments across verticals. Established vendors will acquire smaller vendors to expand their product portfolio and increase their market share.
