Market Overview

A cloud offers not only external storage to various end-user verticals, such as electricity utilities, retail, and government, among others but also is scalable and an on-demand solution, which allows unlimited data access. Cloud computing can improve an enterprise’s computing and analytics capabilities by enabling it to collate, segregate, process, and analyze significant volumes of data. The proliferation of cloud adoption and virtualization and stringent regulations to increase the adoption rate of cloud encryption solutions are some of the factors that are fueling the market growth, across the globe.

In the last decade, the instances of data breaches have increased dramatically resulting in the need for Cloud Encryption. Other dynamics, like cyber-attacks and malicious software, further foster the growth of the Cloud Encryption market. The factor that also positively impacts the market happens to be the high acceptance of cloud-based services.

Scope of the Report

Cloud encryption is a service offered by cloud storage providers whereby data, or text, is transformed using encryption algorithms and is then placed on a storage cloud. Encryption is used when sensitive data such as account details or other information is stored on cloud storage by applying encryption to the data so that only authorized user can access the data. In case the data is lost or stolen due to no encryption key, the data cannot be accessed. In the case of companies who are increasingly using the cloud for storing sensitive data can use encryption to ensure that only authorized users have access.

North America remains the Largest Market for Cloud Encryption

North America holds a major share of the global cloud encryption market due to the presence of global technology leaders in the United States. This region is the biggest revenue generator in the market amongst all the regions in the world. High-profile data breaches in the past decade have created the demand for highly efficient cloud services as recent breaches have led to the compromise of user data. For examples, Apple faced high public outrage when multiple iCloud accounts of high-profile individuals were compromised. This compelled Apple to tighten its cloud security and implement better encryption in its services. Similar breaches have forced companies to invest highly on encryption. Regulations in the region have also buoyed the demand for security in cloud services, and are required to be adhered by all industry verticals.

Europe holds the second biggest market position. Asia-Pacific has emerged as the fastest growing market in the cloud encryption market. The presence of IT and healthcare sector in China and Japan and large service industry in India, along with the th of other rising Asian economies, is boosting the market of cloud encryption in the Asia-Pacific region.
