Campbell, CALIFORNIA, July 17, 2013—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its DDoS Prevention Appliances report, which tracks distributed denial of service (DDoS) vendors and analyzes DDoS appliances built to protect enterprises and carriers.
“DDoS prevention appliances are the first line of defense against brute-force attacks like those we saw aimed at U.S. financial institutions last September, and most service providers and large enterprises are investing heavily in them,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. “With the number, size and coverage of DDoS attacks on the rise, we expect revenue for DDoS prevention solutions to grow in the healthy double digits through 2014.”
Wilson adds: “Many vendors are reporting sharp growth in direct sales to enterprises, even though conventional wisdom says that large enterprise customers are looking at cloud-based solutions for DDoS mitigation. There are many enterprise environments where data simply cannot leave privately-owned networks and data centers to be scrubbed in the cloud, mostly for compliance reasons.”
DDOS PREVENTION MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Global DDoS prevention appliance revenue grew 30% in 2012, to $275 million
- The data center segment is now the largest market for DDoS mitigation solutions, surpassing the carrier transport segment
- DDoS prevention for mobile networks will see strong growth, with a 25% CAGR from 2012 to 2017, thanks to the transition to IP and data, massive increases in capacity, and a new role as a juicy and highly visible target for attacks
- The top 2 vendors in the DDoS prevention appliance market are Arbor Networks and Radware
- With its acquisition of Webscreen, Juniper has stepped into the DDoS market, joining other established networking/security players (including F5 and Fortinet) looking to siphon business from market leader Arbor
Infonetics’ biannual DDoS prevention report provides market size, vendor market share, forecasts through 2017, analysis and trends for DDoS prevention appliances by units, revenue and deployment location (data centers, government networks, carrier transport and mobile networks). Vendors tracked: Andrisoft, Arbor Networks, Corero, F5, Fortinet, GenieNRM, Huawei, Juniper, Narus, Radware, RioRey and others.
