DDoS Prevention Appliances to Grow by 24 Percent

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are seen as a major threat for organizations and the networks that support them. Recent attacks have underscored the importance of implementing security protocols that can mitigate this type of threat before they cause serious damage. The DDOS Prevention Appliances report by Infonetics takes a look at the vendor market share and forecast for service providers that protect carrier data centers, mobile, wired transport, broadband and government transport networks.

The report highlights the biggest drivers for the increase in this market as well as the major players in the industry providing services to enterprise and SMBs. Some of the points in the report include:

  • Activity in DDoS will increase the prevention market to continue to grow, 24 percent in 2012 over 2011
  • The carrier transport segment is expected to pass the data center segment in the DDoS prevention market by the end of 2012
  • The combined market is forecast to top $420 million by 2016
  • Mobile networks will see a 30 percent compound-annual-growth-rate (CAGR) between 2011 and 2016
  • Arbor Networks will continue to garner the biggest share of the market in DDoS prevention appliance services

“While the market for dedicated DDoS prevention solutions remains strong, going forward the overall performance of the market and the vendors in it will be challenged by the widening availability of hosted/SaaS (News - Alert) solutions and new integrated security platforms that include DDoS prevention as a feature. We expect other major security vendors to build specialized security platforms with integrated DDoS prevention that will go head-to-head with mid-range offerings from the dedicated DDoS appliance vendors,” said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

The report provides data for the entire world for vendor market share, market size and forecasts through 2016. Some of the companies tracked in the report include Andrisoft, Arbor Networks, Corero, GenieNRM, IntruGuard, Narus, Radware (News - Alert), RioRey, and many others.

Networks of all sizes are vulnerable to DDoS attacks if they don’t have the right security protocol in place. Multiple redundant system and colocation of data centers ensure recovery times are quick and efficient even if your network is compromised.
