The Cloud Encryption Software Market has registered a CAGR of 40% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. With the rapid increase of cloud adoption and virtualization, and with the stringent regulations helping to increase the adoption of cloud encryption solutions are some of the factors that are boosting the market growth across the globe.
- Traditionally, it was a lot easier to protect the data. There were security features available in the market for protecting and securing the data. The data came in from IT-approved, enterprise-controlled devices, and applications and was stored in the servers. It was protected by walling off the outsiders and trusting the insiders.
- But in today's times, there is a drastic change in how things happen. Now, more data than ever is collected from more applications, users, devices, and connected hardware. New business models demand easy access from the outside.
