The prevention of malware exposure, content liabilities, and meeting government compliance has grown significantly in demand in the last three years. However, vendors are in a constant state of competition in which acquisitions, partnerships, volatile rebranding, consolidation, and aggressive pricing structures have created global strategic and tactical marketing. Cloud solutions have become a disruptive technology for on-premise appliances where cloud solutions are seen as a new way to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and capital expenditures (CAPEX). Mobile and remote devices are becoming a new paradigm for corporate environments with laptops, tablets, and smartphones as a major concern.
