The market for network advanced threat prevention (ATP) is expected to grow rapidly in the next five years as they look to protect users against harmful e-mails and malware in gateways, according to a new report from IHS.
The forecast for network ATP revenue is expected to manage a 22% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2014 and 2019, IHS says. This is the fastest growth of any security gateway products IHS tracks.
“Though the market for traditional messaging and web/malware security gateway products is trending flat to down, network ATP and SaaS are growing aggressively, signaling a shift to new deployment models and solutions that deal directly with unknown threats,” says Jeff Wilson, research director for cybersecurity technology at IHS.
“As with most new threat prevention technologies, network ATP will exist as a standalone solution and as a tightly integrated solution, for example as a module in a firewall or secure web gateway,” Wilson says.
Other trends happening in the content security market include:
- Global e-mail and web/malware security gateway appliance and software revenues increased 3% in the first and second quarters of 2015, to $690 million.
- In the second quarter of this year, 65% of content security gateway revenue was from appliances while 35% was from software.
- Sales of network ATP reached $181 million in the second quarter of 2015, increased 63% over the same quarter of last year.
- SaaS revenues for messaging and web/malware security was $268 million in the second quarter, increased 38% from the same quarter in 2014.
