This IDC study examines the Web security market for the period from 2013 to 2017, with vendor revenue and market growth forecasts. Worldwide market sizing is provided for 2011 and 2012, and a five-year growth forecast for this market is shown for 2013-2017. Revenue and market share of the leading vendors are provided for 2010 and 2011.
"As the Web, cloud, and SaaS technologies become increasingly critical to businesses, the range of products and technologies with features and capabilities for controlling and securing this traffic has broadened," says Phil Hochmuth, program manager for Security Products Research at IDC. "As the market matures, more commoditized features such as URL filtering and Web antimalware will consolidate onto other security platforms (i.e., UTM) as well as into cloud/SaaS services. However, IDC still sees a strong need for advanced Web gateway capabilities across a wide range of enterprises, as the use of social media, business SaaS applications, and BYOD-focused mobile apps and cloud collaboration tools continues to proliferate in organizations."
