Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 4th quarter (4Q13) and year-end Content Security Gateway Appliances, Software, and SaaS market share and forecast report, which tracks gateway software, gateway appliances, and SaaS (software-as-a-service).
“The standalone content security gateway product market will contract slowly through 2018, but there’s reason to be enthusiastic about the overall opportunity to sell security solutions. The money’s transitioning away from standalone web and mail hardware and software to hosted solutions and SaaS, as well as integrated appliances with web and mail security functionality,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
“We think the key vendors in this space will experience overall business growth despite difficulties in their foundational web and mail security business,” adds Wilson.
CONTENT SECURITY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- For the full year 2013, worldwide content security gateway revenue (including appliances and software) totaled $2.78 billion, a 5% decline from 2012
- The content security market is up 1.2% sequentially in 4Q13, to $702 million
- The bright spot in this market, SaaS revenue for content security gateways reached $165 million in 4Q13, up 6% over 3Q13, and up 23% over 4Q12
- McAfee edged out Blue Coat by a hair to claim the #1 ranking for content security market share in 4Q13; Cisco finished just behind the leaders
- The impact of the Snowden leaks is beginning to take shape, with some vendors reporting difficulties as a result of the disclosures; the most likely places of impact for security products are China, Brazil, and emerging economies where major infrastructure upgrades are happening
Join analyst Jeff Wilson Mar. 20 at 11:00 a.m. EDT for Using Big Data Analytics to Amplify Security Intelligence, a live primer for enterprises and service providers looking to use big data to detect, mitigate, and prevent malicious attacks:

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we discussed the Shared Responsibility Model and examined how the most common attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move from data centers to the cloud. Today, we’ll look at some of the unique security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments. While cloud computing delivers many operational, cost-saving and security benefits, it takes place in a public, shared and on-demand ...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
