This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide endpoint security market as of August 2016. This study updates the previous forecast published in Worldwide Endpoint Security Forecast, 2015–2019: The Influence of Specialized Threat Detection (IDC #259807, November 2015)."The worldwide endpoint security market is facing declining consumer antivirus revenue and disruption from security start-ups penetrating the enterprise endpoint security market segment with modern alternatives to traditional antivirus. Some market segments continue to demonstrate growth as measured in constant currency even as geopolitical and currency conversion headwinds depress revenue measured in constant U.S. currency," explains Robert Westervelt, IDC research manager, Security Products and lead of IDC's Data Security practice. "In 2016, IDC expects security start-ups to continue to penetrate the enterprise endpoint security market segment as enterprises seek innovative solutions to detect ransomware and targeted attacks."
