An Overview of Emerging Trends and Growth Opportunities For Test Solution Vendors

The global network and application security test equipment market offers tremendous growth opportunities for security solution vendors. This study covers the state of the network and application security testing market, examining drivers and restraints for growth and geographical trends. Forecasts are provided for regional market growth. In addition, an analysis of the competitive situation including vendors' market shares is performed. The base year is 2011, with forecasts running through 2016. Detailed analysis is included for four geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of World.

Executive Summary

• The global network security testing market generated revenue of $X million in 2012, amounting to a growth of X percent over the previous year. On the other hand, the global application security testing market generated revenue of $X million with a total shipment of X thousand units in 2012.
• Going forward, there will be a sharp increase in the number of zero-day attacks targeted at governments, large enterprises, and the banking and financial sectors. Industry experts agree that the techniques hacktivists, members of organized crime, and government spies use for espionage are gaining in sophistication.
• In recent years, numerous high-profile security breaches and sophisticated attacks have greatly increased awareness of security concerns. These attacks indicate a shift in attacker profiles and have spiked security awareness.
• Today, attackers have the resources and know-how to string together zero-day attacks to work their way from the Internet into databases or process controls. Governments and businesses are rapidly adopting the latest security testing methodology to harden systems against Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) attacks.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Market growth has been stimulated by sophisticated threats and attacks.

2. An increase in APTs and zero-day attacks will drive the demand for security testing.

3. The security testing market will continue to evolve, as new technologies and attacking techniques are discovered.

4. Vulnerability management is gaining visibility as an essential security technology.

Definitions

With a rapid increase in the evolution and adoption of new technologies, new security threats and vulnerabilities are emerging faster than ever before. The general awareness of security attacks and of the importance of security testing has grown significantly over the past decade. Security test solutions are used to find vulnerability or flaws in the network, application, or operating platforms that could potentially be exploited by attackers or hackers in order to cause business disruption, data leakage, or a threat of any other kind.
Most businesses worldwide have employed some kind of security solution in order to prevent data or revenue loss due to internal or external attacks. As hackers and cybercrime groups continue to exploit the existing system and manage to find new ways of initiating attacks, the importance of using advanced test methodologies to detect and manage zero-day attacks and vulnerabilities becomes critical.
At this point in time, network security is not tied closely with enterprises and government organizations. This circumstance will change, as we expect consolidation to take place, which will make security a third pillar of computing. In light of the current situation, cyber security cannot be separated from business operations.
