Infonetics Research: Integrated Security Solutions Gain Share in Network Security Market in 1Q14

Telecom market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) Network Security Appliances and Software report, which tracks integrated security appliances, secure routers, SSL VPN gateways, VPN and firewall software, and IDS/IPS products.


“Security solution vendors’ long-term success will have a lot to do with how they deliver their core security technology—as standalone product solutions, integrated product solutions, and hosted/SaaS solutions—and how they tie these together with a common threat cloud, common policy and management interface, and common reporting tools,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. “Security buyers are becoming quite skeptical and quite intelligent. They know that until their security platform shares a common threat, policy, and reporting structure, it will have coverage gaps that can be exploited.”

Wilson adds: “Vendors who can flexibly deliver customers the core security technology they need will be insulated from the shifts between standalone and integrated products and on-premise and hosted/SaaS deployments enabled by software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).”


  • After a strong finish in 2013, the global network security appliance and software market hit a fairly typical skid in 1Q14, down 12% sequentially, to $1.54 billion
    • Year-over-year, the market is up 1.9%
  • The integrated security segment, particularly appliances, is showing big share gains as legacy markets like software firewall and IPS begin to stall
  • Of the top 5 market share leaders—Check Point, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, and Palo Alto—only Palo Alto managed sequential growth in 1Q14; All were positive on a year-over-year basis
  • The global network security market is forecast by Infonetics to reach $6.6 billion in 2018, a 2013–2018 compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -0.3%


Infonetics’ quarterly network security report provides worldwide and regional market size, vendor market share, forecasts through 2018, analysis, and trends for integrated security appliances, secure routers, SSL VPN gateways, VPN and firewall software, and IDS/IPS products.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
Cloud based infrastructure deployment is becoming more and more appealing to customers, from Fortune 500 companies to SMEs due to its pay-as-you-go model. Enterprise storage vendors are able to reach out to these customers by integrating in cloud based deployments; this needs adaptability and interoperability of the products confirming to cloud standards such as OpenStack, CloudStack, or Azure. As compared to off the shelf commodity storage, enterprise storages by its reliability, high-availabil...

In this power panel at @...
