Network encryption involves the process of encoding and encrypting data and messages communicated and transmitted over a network. It involves a broad range of techniques, tools, and standards to ensure the smooth and secure communications when in transit between two or more network nodes. The need for encryption is rising, as enterprises are increasingly adopting virtualization and cloud to control data, especially in cloud environments. Network encryption tools and services prevent service providers from accessing data and help provide secure multi-tenancy on the cloud. Network encryption is a priority within enterprises as a part of security best practice as it protects confidentiality and privacy of the network traffic during the transfer of data from the source to destination.

Increase in need to adhere to a large number of rules and regulatory standards is a major driver of the global network encryption tools and services market. Growing need to protect enterprises from various network security breaches propels the market. Lack of highly skilled workforce for the development and implementation of network encryption tools and services and frequent changes in government policies for data protection across all regions are major restraints of the market. However, increasing demand of cloud technology allows enterprises to install network encryption solutions and growing adoption of Internet of things (IoT) in various applications are expected to further help in creating growth opportunities in the global network encryption tools and services market. Large enterprises are earlier adopters of network encryption tools and services. They use these tools and services to secure large volumes of data that is generated from various application areas such as HR, sales, marketing, and operations within the organization.
