OPSWAT today announced the release of their quarterly market share report, which includes analysis of antivirus, peer-to-peer, backup, and antiphishing application usage worldwide. In addition to market share coverage, the report provides a comprehensive breakdown of the most popular products in their respective category and how often certain product features are enabled.

OPSWAT's report includes an improved data collection process compared to previous reports. For the first time, all the data in the report was collected solely from OPSWAT Security Score, a free tool that detects and assesses security applications on an endpoint and provides a numerical score. By utilizing data from Security Score, the report is able to provide the most up-to-date information about the applications installed on a user's machine and the status of the application (e.g. whether real-time protection is enabled or disabled); OPSWAT Security Score utilizes the same technology found in OPSWAT's GEARS Cloud, a solution that makes it easier for network administrators to detect and manage a wide range of security applications on devices in their network, including antivirus, hard disk encryption, public file sharing, and many others.
"Using the technology found in GEARS Cloud for our market share data collection is a step forward for our report," said
Additional market share categories included coverage of peer-to-peer and backup applications. uTorrent dominated the peer-to-peer market with more than half of the market (54.5%). BitTorrent, which is owned by the same company as uTorrent, finished in a distant second with 7.1% and Ares finished third with 6.1%. The market for backup products was much more evenly distributed compared to the public file sharing application market.
For the first time shown in OPSWAT market share reports, data was included related to antiphishing products. The report looked at the number of users who have antiphishing enabled in their web browser; 92.1% had antiphishing enabled for at least one of their installed browsers.
