Votiro, global provider of Advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction solutions for protecting organizations against ongoing cyber threats, released today a Market Analysis of secure email gateways worldwide.
Given the increasing frequency of cyber attacks in recent years (a new zero-day vulnerability was found every week on average in 2015) companies are investing heavily in security solutions to protect their sensitive data. Votiro's new report surveys the methods of email protection-cloud based or local-used by the largest companies in the United States, Australia, Japan, and Hong Kong. Highlights of the survey include:
- In the United States, use of cloud-based SEGs increased from 48.5% in July 2015 to 58% in July 2016 among Fortune 1000 companies.
- In Australia, 82% of companies in the ASX 200 Index examined used a cloud-based SEG.
- In Japan, of the 225 companies represented in the Nikkei Index, only 31% had adopted a cloud-based SEG by July 2016.
- In Hong Kong, only eight (16%) of the 50 companies in the HANG SENG Index used a cloud-based SEG in July 2016.

As of this past July, Votiro's study found that in the United States, Microsoft held a market share of 34%, followed by Proofpoint with 24% and Symantec with 16%. In Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, Symantec dominated the market share with 54%, 51%, and 63% respectively.
