The encryption software market by usage comprises encryption for data-at-rest and encryption for data-in-transit. In 2014, data-at-rest encryption software segment accounted for approximately 93.4% of the total encryption software market by value. For data-at-rest, the two most commonly used encryption software methods include full disk encryption (FDE) and file level encryption (FLE), with full disk encryption being the most widely deployed method for protecting data against theft and ensuring compliance with data privacy and data breach notification laws. FDE is preferred over the FLE primarily due to the two major advantages, viz. ease of deployment and management, and complete security.

Software encryption is being widely used across different industry verticals including finance, healthcare, government, and others. Financial sector accounted for approximately 44.2% of global encryption software market in 2014. Entities operating in the sector are mandated by the data privacy regulations to adopt effective security measures in their organization and to ensure that the personally identifiable data (PII) of the customers is protected from any unauthorized or unintended disclosure/access. Healthcare and Public sectors are anticipated to witness rapid adoption of software encryption during 2016-2020.
