Email Encryption Market Synopsis:


The email encryption market is estimated to reach USD 6.84 billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 22.0% during the forecast period of 2019–2024.

Email encryption is defined as the process which involves encrypting email messages with public and private keys to protect critical information which can only be read by the intended recipient. With the increase in the number of  cyber attacks and crimes, it is crucial for users to encrypt the conversations over emails, so as to protect the potentially sensitive information—login credentials, social security numbers, and bank account numbers—from hackers, which can lead to the loss of various valuable assets. The encryption renders the content of emails unreadable during the time taken to travel from the email origin to its destination, which protects the content from any person or a hacker. The increasing utilization of emails for corporate, government, and personal communication between business, individuals or government agencies has increased the demand for email encryption to protect sensitive information from any third party, unidentified sources, or hackers. Additionally, the increasing loss of data, assets, and information due to cyber attacks and threats such as viruses, malware, and spam has also increased the requirement of email encryption among various business organizations.
