Growth spike expected in virtual security appliance market, driven by SDN and NFV
Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Data Center Security Products report, which tracks data center security appliances and virtual security appliances.
“Enterprises and service providers are upgrading data centers to support huge increases in traffic and handle the massive waves of attacks they face every day. As a result, we foresee a growth spike in virtual appliance revenue starting in 2016 due to the deployment of the next generation of network infrastructure using software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) over the next year and a half,” says Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
DATA CENTER AND VIRTUAL SECURITY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Driven by increasing demand from enterprises, data centers, and carriers, global revenue for virtual security appliances is forecast by Infonetics to more than double from 2013 to 2018, when it will reach $1.17 billion
The growth of SDN- and NFV-compatible security solutions is expected to drive consolidation in the virtual appliance vendor landscape, which is crowded with a mix of established security players, hypervisor vendors, and specialist vendors
Infonetics expects worldwide revenue for data center security appliances to grow to $2.7 billion by 2018
Market share for data center security appliances fairly closely mirrors overall market share for security solutions, with Check Point, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, and McAfee in the top tier
