The enterprise network security ecosystem is quickly evolving as businesses shift to the cloud, increase hybrid work, and focus on digital experience, which is exposing new and challenging security risks.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions, including:

  • Where is the market growing?  How quickly is the market transitioning from physical or virtual appliances to cloud-delivered SaaS-based security?
  • How has the pandemic altered network security architecture and purchasing patterns?
  • Will the $10 B+ firewall market fade, or will it continue its nearly thirty-year march of consistent growth?
  • How is cloud-delivered network security in the form of security service edge (SSE) solutions reshaping the market? What is the market adoption of its four primary functions (cloud access security brokers (CASB), firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS), secure web gateway (SWG), and zero-trust network access (ZTNA)?
  • Why have web applications firewalls (WAF) experienced more vigorous growth than traditional firewalls?
  • What impact will cloud service providers have on the ecosystem?
  • Which vendors lead the market, and why?

Dell’Oro Group delivers quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Network Security market to answer these and other essential questions.
