Encryption is the process of converting plain text to cipher text using an encryption algorithm, which may be symmetric or asymmetric. The data encrypted can be deciphered only with an encryption key. Encryption is used to protect the data at rest, data in transit, and data in process in the on-premises and cloud environments. Confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation of the data can be achieved by encryption supported with efficient key management. Symmetric key algorithm makes use of only one key for encryption. Asymmetric key algorithm makes use of a pair of keys: public and private keys. With the help of the encryption software, users can efficiently protect the data stored in storage devices, networks, applications, databases, and cloud environment from advanced cyber-attacks.

COMPETITIVE LEADERSHIP MAPPING TERMINOLOGY

The vendors have been placed into 4 categories based on their performance in each criterion: visionary leaders, innovators, emerging, and dynamic.

VISIONARY LEADERS

The visionary leaders receive high scores for most of the evaluation criteria. They have an established product portfolio and a very strong market presence.

INNOVATORS

Innovators have innovative portfolio of services and a strong potential to build robust business strategies for their business growth, to be at par with the Visionary Leaders. Moreover, a strong and dedicated direct and indirect sales channel is one of the key factors influencing the brand position of the firm.

DYNAMIC DIFFERENTIATORS

The dynamic differentiators are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they have a low product portfolio. They focus on a specific type of technology related to the product.

EMERGING COMPANIES

The emerging companies have niche product offerings and are starting to gain their position in the market. They do not have much strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some more time before getting significant traction in the market.
