Market Consolidation Looms

Organizations face the complexity of mitigating quickly evolving malware, maintaining productivity, and meeting compliance. Web and e-mail content security are security software platforms that address this need by serving serve the primary functions: (1) protect against Web-based malware and targeted cyber-attack, (2) prevent access to inappropriate or unproductive content, and (3) track and monitor communications for compliance, regulatory issues or theft. This report provides an analysis of the market for Web and E-mail Content Security including market sizing, forecasts, market shares and detailed market segmentation.

Executive Summary

•Web and Email content security are security software platforms that serve the primary functions: (1) protect against Web-based malware and targeted cyber-attack, (2) prevent access to inappropriate or unproductive content, and (3) track and monitor communications for compliance, regulatory issues or theft.
•The total market for Web and Email content security systems in 2012 was $X billion. By 2017, the total market size will reach $Xbillion.
•The Web content security segment accounted for $Xbillion in 2012. Fierce market competition and integration with other network security platforms such as UTM, firewalls, IPS, and DLP will inhibit market growth, resulting in a total market size of $X billion in 2017.
•The Email content security accounted for $X billion in 2012. Better growth prospects allow the market to grow to $X billion.
•Symantec and Websense are the two biggest companies in the space withX percent and X percent market shares, respectively. No other market participant has more than X percent market share.
•The Americas compriseX percent of the market in 2012. This will reduce to Xpercent of the market by 2017, primarily resulting from strong growth in the Asia-Pacific (X percent of the market in 2012 to X percent in 2017).
•The SMB market segment will be an agent for change as it requires solutions that satisfy its security needs while minimizing implementation and operational complexity.

CEO’s Perspective

1. New malicious Internet-based attacks are increasing every year, creating higher costs within organizations.
2. Government regulations such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) drive the need for compliance.
3. Financial and government vertical markets are the most targeted segments by cyber criminals.
4. Solutions will experience convergence with other security features such as UTM, firewall, DLP, and antivirus. This will encourage market consolidation in a fragmented market.

Market Overview—Web Content Security

Web Content Security
•Network-based software system that primarily serves three functions associated with employee or other member Web usage:
oProtect against Web-based malware and targeted cyber-attacks
oPrevent access to inappropriate or unproductive content
oTrack and monitor communication for compliance, regulatory issues, or theft
•Used in addition to an organization's proxy server and firewall.
•The product can be provided as software, licensed to run on a customer standard “off-the-shelf” servers (physical or virtual), or can be included as a complete hardware & software solution.
oThe product can also be provided as a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription service.
oIt is important to note that licensing revenue paid by the UTM vendor to a web content security provider would be included in the forecast. However, the revenue would be reduced by the margin collected by the UTM vendor, typically ranging from X percent to Xpercent.
oIncreasing, the web content security functionality will simply be “included” in the price of the UTM, implying that there will not be an extra fee for the web content security. In those instances, there would not be any corresponding revenue to include in the market estimate and would not be included as part of the overall market.
•Functions provided include:
oURL filtering – Controls Web activity
oSpyware protection – Protects against malicious software from installing
oAntivirus scanning – Scans content for malware, virus, and worms
oHTTPS scanning – Examines encrypted Web traffic
oApplication control – Controls application usage
oReporting – Provides reporting on Web usage and actions taken (e.g., blocking)
