Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2014 Cloud and CPE Managed Security Services report, which analyzes and forecasts the market for cloud- and customer premises equipment (CPE)-based security services delivered by service providers to small, medium, and large businesses.
“The never-ending stream of highly-publicized distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks is causing companies of all types and sizes to begin investigating DDoS protection, and for many this protection will come in the form of hosted or cloud-based services like those provided by Prolexic and Verisign,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
“General interest in this space was very much validated when Akamai picked up Prolexic in 2013,” Wilson continues. “We believe cloud-based DDoS mitigation services will grow the fastest of any service covered in our managed security report.”
MANAGED SECURITY SERVICES MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Globally, the managed security service market totaled $14.3 billion in 2013, up 11% from 2012 (which was up 11% over 2011)
- 56% of 2013 security service revenue came from CPE-based services, while cloud-based offerings contributed 44%
- Content security services account for almost half of all cloud-based security service sales
- Large organizations represent the largest opportunity for security services through 2018
- The cloud-based security service segment is forecast by Infonetics to grow 60% over the next 5 years (2013–2018), reaching $10 billion in 2018

Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
