About the Cloud Infrastructure Testing Market
Cloud infrastructure testing involves testing of physical and virtual components like network, storage, and virtualization. It ensures the security of data and performance of the application deployed on the cloud. Clients using cloud-based solutions are opting for testing services to avoid technical glitches that can hamper the performance of IT infrastructure. Technical glitches not only hamper the business performance of client firms but also reduce operational efficiency and incur cost to the firms. Testing the cloud involves the verification and validation of applications, environments, and infrastructure, including networks, data centers, storage, and servers. With the help of cloud infrastructure testing, companies are able to maintain productivity and business resilience during disasters.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cloud infrastructure testing market to grow at a CAGR of 16.67% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global IT Security-as-a-Service Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global IT security-as-a-service market: Blue Coat, Cisco, IBM, Intel Security (McAfee), and Symantec.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alert Logic, Barracuda Networks, BT Global Services, CA Technologies, CenturyLink, CGI Group, CheckPoint Software Technologies, CipherCloud, Computer Sciences, CYREN, FishNet Security, Fortinet, HP, Microsoft, NTT Com Security, Panda Security, Proofpoint, Radware, Trend Micro, Trustwave, and Zscaler.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is the growing adoption of SMAC technology among workforces. The ubiquity of mobile devices and social networking platforms in the workplace allows employees to function remotely and communicate effectively during an emergency. Increased use of SMAC technology has exposed organizations to data leakage and data breach situations due to authentication misuse. IT security as a service helps organizations to implement secure computing with multiple layers of secure authentication.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased need for mobile security. The penetration level of security platforms and necessary security tools among users of mobile platforms is very low due to the lack of awareness about the importance of antiviruses on mobile devices. Therefore, a large number of companies have not yet established a consistent practice of subscribing mobile device endpoint protection software and services. There will be a considerable shift from PCs to mobile security during the forecast period due to growing popularity of BYOD policies and mobile security. We expect several business opportunities to emerge on mobile platform by that time.
Further, the report states that a major factor that could hamper market is the growing concerns over data mismanagement Although cloud-based security service providers offer best security services for data, they are not transparent about the data location. To provide security to data, providers process and encrypt the client's data. At the same time, this might create an ambiguous picture about the vendor selection and concerns over data security. There are many factors associated with data security.
