Worldwide Network Security Forecast, 2018–2022: Hybrid and Multicloud Driving Investment in Core Technologies

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide network security market. This study updates the previous forecast published in Worldwide Network Security Forecast, 2017–2021 (IDC #US42049017, September 2017)."Network security spending continues to grow as organizations enter a multicloud reality. Customers are segmenting networks into more specialized functions and continue to add services to secure these environments accordingly. Customers continue to embrace vendors that offer a platform approach to manageability and simplification across environments in addition to addressing the latest threats. Vendors that can address security in a dynamic, multicloud manner will ultimately be successful." — Robert Ayoub, program director, Security Products
