The global SMB integrated security appliances market is expected to witness an exponential growth over the forecast period driven by the technological advancement and rising use of IT services.
Integrated Security Appliance (ISA) include devices which have multiple features set such as intrusion detection system, antivirus, antispam, VPN (Virtual Private Networking) and firewall in a single device at a low cost.
The security appliances for SMBs include Wi-Fi security, FleXi Ports, extensible security architecture & multi-core technology, WAN connectivity and availability, secure remote access, comprehensive network surveillance, and Layer eight identity-based policies.
An integrated security solution is becoming the obvious choice to decrease the learning and implementation times, as well as to simplify management and maintenance efforts for many customers.
Rising complexity of attacks, with an increase in ability to bypass traditional point-based surveillance, is expected to act a challenge to market growth. Companies are anticipated to redesign their surveillance posture and a solution that protects the corporation’s assets and operates at low cost, leading to an increased adoption of appliances that combine multiple monitoring functions.
Managing one monitoring device that provides IDS, IPS, antivirus, firewall capabilities are simpler than managing varied separate systems. Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) or Intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), have emerged significantly in recent years, especially when enterprises respond to initial challenges in the NAC (Network Access Control) market, including usability difficulties and perceived deployment. Large companies are deploying IPS / IDP, however, followed by NAC; solutions were limited in capabilities to prevent new threats from occurring against the business network.
A complete content inspection surveillance solution must be implemented on a company’s size and risk category ranging from small to large enterprises having low and high risk, respectively to overcome the challenges shortly.
The network security needs of the SMBs differ from large firms. SMBs prefer multifunctional ISA built across the base technology such as a firewall. Varied additional security functions are added to it through additional premium features or a subscription fee. For instance, across the medium to large companies, ranging in the medium risk category, a surveillance compromise would affect normal business operations and could be trouble for many employees.
For large enterprises with high risk, internet presence is critical, and high confidentiality is required. These categories apply to corporations, along with individual offices and facility. Some large national companies may have facilities that could be evaluated as having medium or even low risk, but some headquarters of smaller companies might be categorized as highly sensitive services.
Companies should assess their surveillance needs at all levels of the network, not just the perimeter. As employee mobility becomes more prevalent, the chances of mobile computers infecting the internal network when they are brought back into the company are very high, thus requiring high-security appliances.
SMB integrated security appliances offer extensive features set to the organizations. Based on their functions, they are mainly classified into three categories e-mail, the web, and network security.
The ISA hold their market share across the SMB sector. Additionally, large enterprises are going for multi-layered and multiple safety devices for handling its extensive network and get the high-end security features. As the requirements of a small branch are less than the more extensive system, these devices are becoming the ideal solution for these companies. Furthermore, it substantially reduces the cost of deploying multiple devices in remote office network and employing experienced IT administrators which are also expected to drive the SMB integrated security appliances industry over the forecast period.
The evolving information security market is leading to the changing trends across the types of security solutions. The advanced ways in which IT is being consumed is driving the change in the security requirements of users. The foreseen factors are estimated to propel demand across the SMB integrated security appliances market over the forecast period.
The advent of the internet has caused many modern businesses to rely on their extensive presence to conduct business. For companies that rely on their external connections to conduct business, outages can be severely harmful, especially if they occur during a critical part of the economic cycle.
North America is estimated to dominate the industry owing to the availability of technologically advanced infrastructure. Europe is expected to account for rapid growth driven by rising demand in UK and Germany. Asia Pacific is projected to capture industry share primarily driven by China over the forecast period. The key areas for opportunities in aforementioned regions include intrusion and firewall prevention and detection with unified threat management.
Prominent players in the industry include Cisco, Blue Coat, Intel Surveillance, Juniper, McAfee, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks and Check Point, amongst others, Cisco is expected to hold a considerate industry share over the forecast period. Recently, Canon IT Solutions have made a prominent progress in IT surveillance industry, particularly in Japan by offering high-performance network monitoring solutions.
