Infonetics Research: Mobile security client software market to hit $1.6 billion in 2013

CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/08/09 -- Communications market research firm Infonetics Research released the 2009 edition of its Security Appliances and Software for Mobile Networks and Devices report. Highlights follow.


"There is money to be made in the mobile security market for sure. This is a very young market, and our growth projections are explosive, riding the compound wave of smartphone growth, growth in the use of rich Internet applications on smartphones, and hacker interest in developing exploits for phones. For now, hackers continue to focus their energy on the hundreds of millions of desktop computers around the globe, but we forecast over 1.5 billion new smartphones will ship worldwide between 2008 and 2013, providing ample opportunity for financially motivated hacking of smartphones -- and that opportunity grows significantly every year. Consumers and enterprises will have to make significant investments in security client software, and mobile providers are already making huge investments in security infrastructure upgrades," said Jeff Wilson, Infonetics Research's Principal Analyst, Network Security.


--  Internet friendly smartphones (iPhones, Windows Mobile phones,
    Android-based phones, others) make enticing targets for hackers
--  Revenue for mobile security client software was up 118% in 2008 from
    2007, and is forecast to top $1.6 billion in 2013
--  North America currently lags EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and
    Asia Pacific in total smartphone shipments, but leads in adoption for
    mobile security clients
--  Revenue for security appliances and software for mobile networks grew
    25% in 2008
    --  Growth in this segment is led by IDS/IPS and content security
        solutions, worldwide revenue for which is increasing at a fast pace
        (16% and 15% CAGRs from 2008 to 2013, respectively)


Infonetics' mobile security report provides market size, forecasts, and analysis for security appliances and software sold to mobile service providers for protecting their infrastructure, and mobile security client software sold to consumers and enterprises. Products tracked: mobile security clients (data protection and anti-x clients) and security products for mobile networks, including intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS), content security gateways, and integrated security appliances and software above and below $30,000.

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
