Convergence Accelerates Market Maturity
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) provides valuable network protection capabilities. However, the IPS market faces growing competition from network security products that offer integrated IPS functionality such as next generation firewall (NGFW) and unified threat management (UTM). More and more businesses are choosing this integrated approach to network security. As a result, convergence is limiting the growth potential for pure-play IPS products. Vendors must solidify and implement decisive strategies for navigating this stage of the IPS market.
