Campbell, CALIFORNIA, April 26, 2012—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its recent Cloud and CPE Managed Security Services report, which analyzes and forecasts the market for cloud-based and CPE-based security services delivered by service providers for small, medium, and large businesses.
"The fact that many new attacks are developed for the web applications means that any device that has a web browser and some form of Internet access is a target," notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. "Companies have to worry about desktops, laptops, servers, smartphones, tablets, kiosks, iPods, set-top boxes, and any other device that can connect to the Internet. The highly distributed nature of Internet-connected devices and the diversity of those devices drives many companies to look at managed services (cloud-based services in particular) to provide consistent protection regardless of device type, location, operating system, or browser."
