Analyst Review

The adoption of hardware encryption has increased for protecting sensitive data on portable devices such as USB flash drives and laptops. Numerous benefits provided by hardware encryption technology such as consistent performance, ease of use, and robust protection against common sophisticated attacks offset its cost higher. For instance, Trend Micro™ Endpoint Encryption encrypts data on a wide range of devices both PCs and Macs, laptops and desktops, USB drives, and other removable media. This solution combines enterprise-wide full disk, file/folder, and removable media encryption to prevent unauthorized access and use of private information. A single, well-integrated management console allows businesses to manage users holistically using the same console for endpoint protection and other Trend Micro security products. Deploying Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption ensures that data will continue to be protected as the mobile computing devices and organizational needs change.

Furthermore, today, enterprises and service providers are increasingly using network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) technologies to design, deploy and manage their networks and cloud-based services. These software-based technologies provide organizations cost and operational benefits as they move network functions from dedicated network encryption hardware appliances to virtual servers. However, these technologies can also present additional security challenges for protecting sensitive data that runs across these networks due to their virtualized architecture. Owing to this reason, more organizations are embracing the advantages of virtualized networks to deliver cost-effective scalability, flexibility, and network management to the network edge. For instance, Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, launched of a virtualized network encryption platform redefines network data security by providing the crypto agility required to ensure sensitive data and transmissions remain secure, regardless of network design.

Such enhanced factors are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the hardware encryption market growth during the forecast period. Nevertheless, the hardware encryption market is consolidated and competitive, owing to the presence of well-diversified regional and international vendors.
