Hot Investment Areas in Network Security Market: Handheld Security, Content Security, IPS, NAC

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/07/05 -- As hackers continue to invent new ways to attack corporate networks, network security vendors continue to invent new and better ways to protect them, and some of these innovations will no doubt push the lucrative security market even higher.

The results of a new study from Infonetics Research, User Plans for Security Products and Services: North America 2005, point to four stand-out technologies expected to reap large rewards for successful vendors.

"First, there's a real need for enterprise-class security for handheld devices, especially wireless client devices such as WiFi VoIP handsets," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst at Infonetics Research and author of the study. "Second, as the next step in perimeter security, network IPS is beginning to make the transition from niche security technology to core network infrastructure. Third, any vendor that can successfully pull off network access control will be sitting pretty in the security market. And finally, enterprises are fed up with viruses, spyware, and malware, and are willing to make significant investments to put a stop to them."

Trends in the North American security market:

--  Software, hardware appliances, and secure routers are the preferred
    network security form factors for most respondents in the study, both now
    and in 2007, with secure routers showing the most growth in use
--  48% of respondents have already purchased wireless LAN security
    products, and 29% will purchase or are considering purchasing wireless LAN
    security
--  Blocking viruses and the fear of being hacked by outsiders are the
    leading factors pushing respondents to buy security products and services
--  Increased service reliability is the most important payback
    respondents expect from managed security services, followed by allowing the
    organization to focus on core competencies, access to more advanced
    technology, and access to better expertise
    

Infonetics' study examines end-user security requirements and preferences for network security and provides analysis on important trends and a clear picture of security plans at small, medium, and large North American organizations, including key vertical markets.
