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.

ANALYST NOTE

"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.

MOBILE SECURITY MARKET RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

--  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)
