New threats drive mobile device security software market to 25% CAGR through 2018



Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Mobile Device Security Client Software report, which tracks enterprise and consumer security client software for mobile devices.

ANALYST NOTE

“Real mobile threats are here, and the explosive growth we forecast for the mobile device security software market comes from the ever-expanding population of consumer and enterprise users looking to apply a consistent security policy to devices, combat a massive volume of threats—particularly aimed at Android devices—and deal with rogue apps and the emergence of revenue-generating threats like screenlockers,” says Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

Wilson adds: “We’re also watching the convergence of mobile device management, mobility, SSL VPN, and pure mobile device security because this union has a significant impact on the long-term opportunity for selling mobile security clients.”
