Infonetics: Network Security Market Rises 10% in 2012
Mar 15, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from two 4th quarter (4Q12) and year-end security reports: Network Security Appliances and Software and Content Security Gateway Appliances, Software, and SaaS.
"In the network security appliances and software market, vendors are actively jockeying to take advantage of competitor slip-ups," said 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."
Wilson added: "Meanwhile, though we finally saw a slight rebound in the content security market in the 4th quarter with appliance products leading the way, the content security gateway market actually contracted slightly in 2012 for the first time ever. Vendors in this space are navigating two tricky transitions: from products to services/SaaS, and from single-function solutions to integrated solutions."
