Market Maturity & Product Efficacy Questions Dampen Prospects

The efficacy of traditional antivirus-based endpoint protection is beginning to be challenged. While it is true that the role of traditional protection has changed with today's cyber reality offering effective and efficient protection, following the creation of a signature remains essential. Also, endpoint security is not limited to antivirus. Endpoint security includes host-based software products that protect computing devices from many forms of malware, cyber-attacks, and unwanted applications. This report provides an analysis of the market for endpoint security including market sizing, market forecasts, market shares, market description and market trends, drivers and restraints, and a "SWOT" analysis of individual market participants.

Executive Summary
-Endpoint security includes host-based software products that protect computing devices such as laptops, desktops, netbooks, tablets, servers, and smartphones from malware, cyber-attacks, and unwanted applications, and from data breaches attributed to lost or stolen devices.
-The endpoint security market is in a maturity phase. The market accounted for $ billion in revenue in 2013. By 2018, the market will have declined slightly to $billion.
-The efficacy of traditional antivirus software is beginning to be challenged. Traditional antivirus software is best used to combat opportunistic (untargeted) attacks, offering effective and efficient protection following the creation of a signature. Traditional antivirus software is an effective tool to be use in a set of tools to provide security for endpoints. Using a combination of all the relevant technologies provides the highest possible level of security.
-The entry of effective free antivirus solutions has had a dampening effect on the market, weakening pricing power of vendors and inhibiting the ability of vendors to attract new users.
-The market for endpoint security solutions will continue to be dominated by businesses. Approximately two-thirds of the market revenue will come from businesses.
-Mobile devices offer great promise for endpoint security vendors. However, monetizing mobile device solutions has been challenging.
