Research and Markets: Global Messaging Security Market 2014-2018: In July, McAfee Completes Its Acquisition of Finland-Based Security Firm Stonesoft
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pnvp86/global_messaging)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Messaging Security Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Messaging Security market to grow at a
CAGR of 12.7 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors
contributing to this market growth is the increasing popularity of
cloud-based secure messaging. The Global Messaging Security market has
also been witnessing increasing R&D spending by vendors. However, the
increasing complexity of network infrastructure could pose a challenge
to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this space are Cisco Systems Inc., McAfee (News - Alert) Inc.,
Symante Corp., and Trend Micro Inc.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Microsoft Corp., Google Inc.,
Sophos, Clearswift (News - Alert) Ltd., Proofpoint Inc., Barracuda Networks Inc., Panda
Security SL, and Websense Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The Global
Messaging Security market is witnessing an increase in mergers and
acquisitions, which is expected to continue even during the forecast
period. Both existing vendors and new entrants prefer the acquisitive
route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of
offerings. For instance, in July 2013, McAfee completed its acquisition
of Finland-based security firm Stonesoft for US$389 million. This
acquisition is likely to help McAfee enhance its next-generation
firewall technology for its enterprise customers. Further, Symantec (News - Alert)
acquired Liveoffice, a provider of cloud-based data archiving and
storage solutions, for US$115 million in 2012.
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the
increasing popularity of SaaS (News - Alert) and virtual appliance-based solutions.
Further, the report states that one such challenge is the increasing
complexity of network infrastructure. The enterprise network
infrastructure in an organization is very complex as it comprises a
combination of various security solutions.
