Campbell, CALIFORNIA, March 11, 2013—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 4th quarter (4Q12) and year-end Network Security Appliances and Software market share and forecast report.
"In the network security appliances and software market, vendors are actively jockeying to take advantage of competitor slip-ups,” observes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. "Challengers like Palo Alto, Fortinet, Sourcefire, and Dell SonicWALL will continue to make life interesting for Cisco, Check Point, and Juniper in 2013. When they find success, it will be because they exploit dis-satisfaction with the pricing, efficacy, performance, and feature breadth of the products from the top 3 vendors.”
NETWORK SECURITY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- 2012 ended with a bang for most network security vendors, with high-end appliances driving a good portion of the growth
- Worldwide, network security appliance and software revenue grew 10% in 2012 to $6.3 billion, and is up 7% from the year-ago 4th quarter, at $1.7 billion
- Integrated security appliances have gained share every quarter since 4Q11
- In 2012, Cisco, Check Point, Juniper, McAfee, and Fortinet led the network security market, though Infonetics expects possible share changes in 2013
