Worldwide Internet Defense Market Shares, 2018: WAF and DDoS Mitigation Address Leading Attack Vectors

This IDC study reviews the internet defense market shares for 2018. It is the first to break out product revenue for DDoS mitigation and WAF from the corresponding network security and content security markets. Historically, IDC tracked the submarkets of DDoS mitigation and WAF under network security and content security. Note that, per the previous taxonomy, market revenue shown here is also captured in the following studies: Worldwide Network Security Market Shares, 2018: SD-WAN Fuels UTM Sales (IDC #US44778519, May 2019) and Worldwide Content Security Market Shares, 2018: Cloud Adoption Challenges Traditional Models (IDC #US45533219, September 2019). As IDC shifts to the latest cybersecurity taxonomy, future studies will not feature double counting of revenue. "Internet defense is a vital technology for any enterprise that is reliant on internet connectivity and web performance." — Chris Rodriguez, research manager, Cybersecurity and Trust
