Integrated Security Appliances Poised for Explosive Growth

In-Stat Reports: To help organizations with the continuous onslaught of network threats, integrated security appliances offer an assortment of security capabilities in a single box. These capabilities include firewall/VPN, intrusion detection and prevention, and gateway anti-virus. Other capabilities can include content filtering, anti-spam, and anti spyware.
Integrated security appliances are an emerging product category in the security appliance market. In-Stat research shows that customer demands for reduced complexity and convenience are important factors for the growth and popularity of integrated security appliances, especially among Small/Medium Businesses (SMBs). SMBs have the same network security needs as larger enterprises, but often must contend with restricted budgets and limited resources.
The addition of robust management and reporting capabilities has also stimulated the use of integrated security appliances by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).
The integrated security appliance market is poised for explosive growth in the next four years, reaching $3.3 billion by 2009.
