Firewall Management Market Continues Rapid Growth
Driven by a wide array of factors ranging from breach incidents to compliance and ongoing technology refresh, demand for firewall and network security policy management solutions has never been stronger. Further accelerated by everything from adoption of next-generation devices to further refinement of the PCI DSS standard, organizations continue to invest a significant portion of their overall IT security budgets into continued evolution of network defenses.
According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls, the market for firewalls alone will reach $9.4 billion in 2014 and maintain a growth rate of 10% through 2016.
Further, Gartner predicts that third-party firewall/policy management providers will continue to exploit the need for more efficient management capabilities “to optimize, visualize, and reduce firewall rules and policies.”
At its 2014 Security & Risk Management Summit, Gartner analysts noted that 51% of all client calls related to network security still focus on matters of firewall management.
Gartner cited the growing scale, complexity and segmentation as leading drivers of demand for firewall management solutions, underlined by the need for more effective change management and policy compliance methodologies.
