Infonetics: Network Security Market Up 10% in 2012 as Competition Heats Up; Content Security Rebounds in Q4 Business Wire CAMPBELL, Calif. -- March 12, 2013 Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from 2 4^th quarter (4Q12) and year-end security reports: Network Security Appliances and Software and Content Security Gateway Appliances, Software, and SaaS. ANALYST NOTE "In the network security appliances and software market, vendors are actively jockeying to take advantage of competitor slip-ups,” observes 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 adds: “Meanwhile, though we finally saw a slight rebound in the content security market in the 4^th 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.” NETWORK SECURITY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS *2012 ended with a bang for most network security vendors, with high-end appliances driving a good portion of the growth *Worldwide, network security appliance and software revenue grew 10% in 2012 to $6.3 billion, and is up 7% from the year-ago 4^th quarter, at $1.7 billion *Integrated security appliances have gained share every quarter since 4Q11 *In 2012, Cisco, Check Point, Juniper, McAfee, and Fortinet led the network security market, though Infonetics expects possible share changes in 2013 NETWORK SECURITY REPORT SYNOPSIS Infonetics’ quarterly network security report provides worldwide and regional market size, vendor market share, forecasts through 2017, analysis, and trends for integrated security appliances, secure routers, SSL VPN gateways, VPN and firewall software, and network-based intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) products.
