Campbell, CALIFORNIA, September 9, 2014—Telecom market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2nd quarter 2014 (2Q14) Network Security Appliances and Software report, which tracks integrated security appliances, secure routers, SSL VPN gateways, VPN and firewall software, and intrusion detection and prevention products.
SECURITY ANALYST NOTE
“The network security market saw a change in leadership for the first time in a very long time, with Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks each moving up a notch among the top five vendors, now in the third and fourth positions, respectively,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
Wilson adds: “Given the current climate in security, we look for more changes or even some consolidation, with Check Point, Cisco, Dell SonicWall, Fortinet, Juniper, McAfee, and Palo Alto battling it out for share.”
