Software protection dongles are devices which are connected with computer and are software driven programs which run on the computer and restrict any unwanted functions till the hardware lock device is attached to the computer. Software protection dongles generally incorporates with algorithmic encryption in their on-board micro-electronic circuitry in order to provide security to the documents. A software protection dongle protects the user from internet attacks and reduces the chance of fraud during online shopping. It also helps organizations to secure confidential information and helps in maintaining high levels of authenticity.
Increasing growth in the service industry is one of the major factors responsible for growth of the software protection dongle market. The shift toward cloud computing and data analytics is resulting in large flow of information across the globe. In the last few decades, statistics have shown that numerous interruptions in information systems have been causing financial losses to companies. To overcome such challenges, software security dongles are used by organizations to avoid financial losses. Many security-conscious organizations across the globe have been using these software protection modules to manage, and store their cryptographic keys. Growing concern about data security across the globe is one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the software protection dongle market. In the fast moving information era, it becomes extremely important for both small and big organizations to adopt cloud for storage and virtual resources. The growing use of cloud is anticipated to fuel the demand for software protection dongles during the forecast period to maintain the authenticity of information. Increasing number of cyber-attacks and data breaches are resulting in high demand for hardware locks. In the last few decades, expenditure by organizations on cyber security solutions has increased. Rules and regulations of governments of various countries regarding cyber security within various industries such as BFSI, public sector units etc. is likely to enhance the demand for software protection dongles during the forecast period. However, high cost of implementation and upgrades is restricting the growth of the software protection dongle market. Moreover, the lack of technical expertise is also hampering the growth of the software protection dongle market.
