DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fvshd5/global_unified) has announced the addition of the "Global Unified Threat Management Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
Global UTM market to grow at a CAGR of 14.71% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global UTM market for 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of UTM solutions which include network firewalls, VPNs, IDPs, web security, routing, and anti-malware solutions.
Unified threat management (UTM) technology emerged around 2004 to respond to the threats and sophisticated attacks that traditional firewalls were failing to handle. UTM solutions combine multiple security technologies into one solution that can perform many security functions simultaneously to provide layered protection to all sizes of organization whether small enterprise, home office, mid-level enterprise, or large enterprise.
UTM is available as cloud services and appliances with firewall, intrusion detection, anti-malware, anti-spam, content filtering, and virtual private network (VPN) capabilities in a single integrated package.
Hackers are increasingly focusing on attacking network layers rather than application layers. DoS is one of the oldest and most common techniques used to pilfer confidential data. Hackers use DoS to send unsolicited data to a user's web server and network resources to increase traffic. This automatically generates requests for access, blocking the server as well as accessibility to legitimate users.
According to the report, increased dependency on web applications leads to an unprecedented rise in cyber-attacks, including APTs. These APTs can affect the IT infrastructure of an organization and are generally intended to target critical infrastructure such as government websites, customer databases, and web servers, and can cause more harm than other types of cyber threat.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the vendors operating in the global UTM market is the increased complexity of the network infrastructure.
The market is divided into the following segments based on end-user:
- Check Point Software
- Dell Sonic Wall
- Juniper Networks
Other prominent vendors
- Barracuda Networks
- Panda Security
