Virtual and data center security appliances to hit $4.4 billion by 2016; vendor battle looming

 

Campbell, CALIFORNIA, June 7, 2012—The data center and virtual security appliance market is on track to grow to a $4.4 billion opportunity by 2016, reports technology market research firm Infonetics Research in its latest Data Center Security Appliances market share, size, and forecast report.


ANALYST NOTE

"In the already big and growing data center security appliance segment, we see a potential battle looming for vendor market share," predicts Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. "Cisco leads now, with nearly a third of global revenue in 2011, followed by Juniper, McAfee, HP, and Fortinet. But there are a number of appliance vendors that don't yet crack the top 5 that we expect will have a strong position in data center security overall later this year, and others already in the top 5 that we expect will strengthen their positions, including McAfee, Trend Micro, Check Point, Arbor, Palo Alto, SonicWALL, and F5."


DATA CENTER AND VIRTUAL SECURITY APPLIANCE MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • The virtual security appliance market is smaller but growing faster than the data center security appliance segment, as threats intensify and cloud buildouts continue
  • Global sales of virtual security appliances -- including VPNs/firewalls, SSL VPNs, IDS/IPS and content security gateways -- grew 57% from 2010 to 2011
  • The larger data center security appliance market, including integrated security appliances, IDS/IPS, content security gateways and DDoS appliances, is forecast by Infonetics to grow 8.7% in 2012
  • Both segments are primed for impressive growth over the next 5 years, driven by the increasing volume and variety of security threats, new security challenges being presented by cloud and virtualization technologies, service provider data center upgrades, and the cost and ineffectiveness of some traditional security solutions in data center environments
