The Fight Against Zero-day Attacks is Driving Adoption in Critical Industries

This study analyzes the advanced persistent threat (APT) solutions market in Asia-Pacific and addresses the security technologies used to mitigate advanced malware exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities in an operating system or application. The market is in the nascent growth stage and is highly fragmented, with many vendors offering various solutions, thereby driving growth. Due to rising concerns about the increasing number of targeted and advanced attacks, APT solutions continued to gain traction among enterprises in Asia-Pacific in 2014. The increasing number of attacks that targeted critical infrastructure, such as industrial control systems (ICS), also drove the adoption of APT solutions.

Market size was estimated at $117.9 million in 2014, including on-premises products and cloud-based solutions.

Executive Summary
- This study analyzes the advanced persistent threat (APT) solutions market in Asia-Pacific and addresses the security technologies used to mitigate advanced malware exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities in an operating system or application.
- All revenue and forecast assumptions are based on CY2014 (January 2014 – December 2014).
- Due to rising concerns about the increasing number of targeted and advanced attacks, APT solutions continued to gain traction among enterprises in Asia-Pacific in 2014. Market size was estimated at $ million, including on-premises products and cloud-based solutions.
- The market was in the nascent growth stage and highly fragmented, with many vendors offering various solutions, thereby driving growth. Leveraging the growing concerns about the sophisticated threat landscape, many vendors carried out extensive marketing activities across Asia-Pacific to promote their products and solutions, which resulted in increased adoption.
- The rise in the number of advanced and targeted attacks aimed at enterprises and organizations with highly sensitive data urged them to look at advanced security solutions for protection against zero-day threats. The increasing number of attacks that targeted critical infrastructure, such as industrial control systems (ICS), also drove the adoption of APT solutions.
- Such incidents proved that enterprises holding sensitive and valuable information or owning IP were at a high risk of becoming the primary targets of attacks. Consequently, they would become the key adopters of APT solutions.
- These enterprises were mainly from the BFSI, government, manufacturing, and service provider verticals, as well as the energy industry. With more targeted attacks anticipated on the energy industry, the adoption of APT solutions will drive future market growth.
- Among the sub-regions, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), Japan, Greater China, and Southeast Asia (SEA) were the key markets in 2014. While most clients in ASEAN and ANZ were from various verticals, clients in Greater China were mainly from the government, BFSI, and service provider verticals.
- ASEAN, ANZ, India, and Japan were dominated by global participants, including FireEye, Inc., Palo Alto Networks, Trend Micro, Zscaler, Inc., and Check Point. Despite having established a foothold in Greater China and South Korea, these vendors faced intense competition from local vendors, such as WINS, AhnLab, Inc., Venustech, and NSFOCUS, which have closer relationships with large local enterprises and government organizations.
- On-premises APT solutions accounted for a significant revenue market share in 2014. The adoption of cloud-based solutions also increased significantly during the same year as many vendors started offering cloud-based portfolios. This reflected their vision of integrating the APT solution feature into other security platforms, such as network firewalls.
