This IDC study provides an analysis and forecast of the Western European information security software market for 2014-2018. It segments the market by functional market (identity and access management, endpoint security, messaging security, network security, web security, security and vulnerability management, and other software that includes emerging information security functions).
"In 2013, the information security market in Western Europe grew 3.5% in constant currency, compared with 6.2% in 2012. IDC believes this lower-than-expected growth is due to the disruption caused by 3rd Platform technologies such as mobile, cloud, Big Data, and social business. Organizations are holding back on investing in technology and processes since they are still trying to determine the possible impact of these technologies on their respective organizations," said Fayaz Khaki, associate director, IDC European Information Security. "In addition, organizations are focusing their efforts on consolidating their current infrastructure. This exercise is likely a preemptive measure before investing in 3rd Platform technologies."
