The data center ecosystem is quickly evolving as customers consolidate data centers, move to the cloud, and look towards an ever-increasing amount of applications driving data to end user devices. Application Delivery Controllers expand their role under increasing workloads in the data center and the expansion of Cloud. Network Security is encompassing more threat types and unique application vulnerabilities than ever before. To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How quickly is the market transitioning from physical or virtual appliances to cloud-delivered security?
  • How are changes in Data Center network architecture impacting network security?
  • How is the migration to Cloud services affecting network security?
  • What impact will Cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services, have on the Data Center Appliance market?
  • Are current market leaders gaining or losing momentum?
  • How quickly are traditional hardware vendors re-inventing themselves to be SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) vendors?
  • Which network security products and solutions are continuing to grow? Which are in decline?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Network Security & Data Center Appliance market.
