Enterprise Data Center Security Buyers Open to Upstart Vendors, New Infonetics Survey Shows



  Enterprise Data Center Security Buyers Open to Upstart Vendors, New
  Infonetics Survey Shows

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- April 16, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its Data
Center Security Strategies and Vendor Leadership: North American Enterprise
Survey, which details enterprises’ plans for deploying security solutions in
data centers, as well as their thoughts on leading data center security
vendors.

ANALYST NOTE

“The battle for data center security domination is raging, particularly at the
high end of the appliance market,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for
security at Infonetics Research. “Based on the results of our latest study, we
believe most data center security buyers will continue to turn to trusted
names, but they’ll also use smaller vendors whose solutions bring a leap in
efficacy, lower costs, or provide management and policy functions that offer a
single window into hardware appliances, virtual appliances, and server
software.”

“Now is the time to develop comprehensive solutions,” Wilson adds. “Vendors
that aren’t in the game yet or rounding out their product offerings will be
challenged to compete for the massive dollars that will be spent this year and
next.”

DATA CENTER SECURITY SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS

  * Enterprises participating in Infonetics’ survey spent an average of $14.6
    million on data center security products in 2012, and expect to spend
    nearly $17 million in 2013
  * While many buyers plan to invest in virtual appliances for higher-layer
    security technologies such as messaging, IPS, application, and web
    protection, Infonetics believes that businesses will continue to utilize
    hardware infrastructure for DDoS mitigation and firewalls
  * Survey respondents named Cisco, McAfee, HP, Juniper, and Trend Micro as
    the top data center security suppliers, though Fortinet, Check Point, Palo
    Alto, and Dell SonicWALL are expected to find their way into more deals in
    2013
  * As data center security vendors race to turn out the best end-to-end
    solution, Infonetics anticipates continued growth in hypervisor security
    solutions and even more partnerships (or consolidation) between appliance,
    virtual appliance, and server security vendors
