ITR Market View; WinMagic - Japanese Disk Encryption Leader

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA – 1 December 2014 -WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced it is the market share leader in the Japanese disk encryption market, according to data from Japanese information technology research firm ITR. WinMagic’s 43.8 percent share in 2013 more than doubled its closest competitor, according to a recent ITR Market View report. ITR projects WinMagic will own more than half the Japanese market by the end of 2014, with a 51.4 percent share.

“With heightened attention to data security, given high profile breaches worldwide, numerous organizations are evaluating their data encryption solutions, and they are finding WinMagic’s approach to be flexible, highly secure and not invasive to a company’s computing plans or the productivity of its employees,” said Mark Hickman, COO at WinMagic. “What is especially impressive about the ITR Market View data is that our growth continues to accelerate despite other well-advertised encryption methods, such as Microsoft BitLocker. Organizations clearly see how our solution is unique in its ability to centrally manage multiple encryption schemes, such as BitLocker, and the numerous efficiencies our solution provides, based on many years of innovation in the market.”

 According to ITR, the Japanese disk encryption market in 2013 surpassed 400M Yen (approximately US$4M) and is expected to grow 17.5 percent in 2014.
