San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2010 -- OPSWAT, Inc., the leading provider of integration technologies to software developers and vendors whose products are deployed in over 50 million endpoints, recently completed an update to their groundbreaking June 2010 Worldwide Antivirus Market Share report.
In this edition, they have focused on the North American market and provided a comparison from the June data to show current market share trends. A paid version of this report will also be available, including additional market share data and comparisons for South America, Europe and Asia.
OPSWAT has also issued its first report covering the usage of disk encryption applications. This examination contains unique data, including information on Microsoft BitLocker deployments and the actual percentage of systems which BitLocker is actively encrypting when installed.
Drawing from the research power of two of the company’s diagnostic utilities that incorporate the OESIS Framework, OPSWAT analyzed data from tens of thousands of endpoint users who volunteered to report back their system information.
The research reveals that the top 10 Windows antivirus applications by vendor for the North American market are as follows:
Notable findings from the antivirus report include:

Disk Encryption Report
The findings show that end user adoption of hard disk encryption technologies aren’t nearly as widespread as the use of antivirus, antispyware or firewall products. Even when these hard disk encryption features are included with a Windows OS, they remain unused for the most part. In future reports we will be tracking the deployment and adoption trends of hard disk encryption to show how these trends may be changing. The top five hard disk encryption application vendors detected during OPSWAT’s study were as follows:

OPSWAT will be continuing to release more reports on the market share for endpoint security products such as personal firewalls, backup clients and device access control applications in the future. Application vendors looking to add their applications to the OESIS Framework are invited to partner with OPSWAT through the free OESIS OK Certification Program.
Founded in 2002, OPSWAT provides software engineers and IT pros with development tools and data services to power manageability and security solutions. OPSWAT, Inc. created OESIS OK, a free, industry-wide certification program that verifies the interoperability of endpoint security applications with products from market-leading technology vendors.
