Database Encryption Market Outlook 2016 – 2023

Database encryption is a technology used for protecting databases containing important and confidential information. Using this technology, simple data stored in the database would be converted into an encrypted format. This encrypted data would be unreadable to anyone who doesn’t have the encryption key. Database encryption is based on three important security features which are integrity, confidentiality and availability. Important functions such as application of predefined restrictions, prevention of data corruption and reliable and regular access to the database are performed with the help these security features.

Regulatory and compliance requirements are the major driving factors for the data encryption market. Regulatory requirements such as health insurance portability and accountability (HIPAA) for healthcare and payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS) for banking financial services and insurance (BFSI) have forced enterprises worldwide to implement data protection techniques. Introduction of new mobile devices, comprehensive usage of social media and virtual storage applications in the enterprises generate vast amount of data. Protecting this data is important as it contains valuable information pertaining to customers and enterprises. Database encryption is the choice of organizations to protect their vulnerable data, further driving the database encryption market. Also, flexibility of the database encryption solutions is helping to increase its popularity. With the help of flexible data encryption solutions, encrypted data could be easily transferred to removable devices such as USBs or CDs/DVDs. However, high costs associated with these solutions and erroneous management of encryption key are restraining the growth of database encryption market. Cloud services are providing tremendous growth opportunities to database encryption market. Furthermore, easy implementation of the data encryption solution with the help of cloud technology has helped the customers to use it irrespective of the location and time.
