[TRENDS]
"Disk encryption for laptops is taking hold, and making inroads into the smartphone market. Every large security vendor either offers a disk encryption product (usually full-disk) that they own themselves, or offer via OEM relationship. Deployments are being fueled by disclosure laws like MA-201, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which focuses on health care." -- Andrew Jaquith, senior analyst, Forrester Research
