Spending Increase On Security Among Service Providers

Infonetics Research : 22 October, 2010  (New Product)
Infonetics Research uncovers trend in spending increases among service providers keen to improve security ahead of 2012
Market research firm Infonetics Research has released excerpts from its Security Drivers, Spending, and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey.

The survey, published October 15, is one of three security surveys conducted as part of Infonetics' 2010 Security Continuous Research Service (CRS), a series of enterprise and service provider surveys and analysis on the network security market.

'Our survey this year of drivers, spending, and brand awareness in the service provider security market shows a continuation of key trends that have been in place for the last two years or so. The three biggest drivers for deploying security remain: threats, privacy, and traffic growth. The market is ripe for a product manufacturer to come out with an end-to-end security story for service providers that offers solutions embedded into network elements, standalone security products for transport networks and the data center, and client solutions that service providers can deliver for differentiation, or even monetizing,' notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

Select Security Survey Highlights:

- All service providers Infonetics interviewed are increasing security spending for the next two years, great news for security product manufacturers still wrestling with the effects of the recession and hesitant SMB and enterprise buyers
- Service providers have a wide variety of platforms to choose from when making security investments; the two in which they plan the biggest investments over the next 12 months are Web security and firewalls
- When looking at vendor strengths and weaknesses, Juniper and Check Point do the best overall among service provider respondents
- Service providers can not afford to stop investing in security solutions because of traffic growth and changes in the threat landscape; security product manufacturers who have not traditionally focused on the service provider space may want to reconsider
