Global Data Center Security Market 2017-2021
About Data Center Security
Data center security solutions safeguard confidential data against unauthorized external access and malicious software. The increased adoption of cloud-based services and virtualization has fostered the need for advanced security mechanisms that must be implemented in data centers worldwide. Enterprises can deploy on-demand services quickly and efficiently using comprehensive security measures, thereby increasing the availability of resources.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global data center security market to grow at a CAGR of 10.51% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global data center security market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the adoption of both physical and logical security solutions to calculate the market size.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Data Center Security Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global data center security market: Bosch Security Systems, Check Point Software Technologies, Cisco Systems, Fortinet, Honeywell International, Intel, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Trend Micro, and Tyco International.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Allegion, Arecont Vision, Assa Abloy, Axis Communications, Boon Edam, Byremote, Digitus Biometrics, EMKA, Exacq Technologies, FutureNet Security Solutions, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology, Hurricane Fence Company, MOXA, and Perimeter Protective System.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is increase in the use of Docker container technology. Docker containers aid in the deployment of distributed applications easily. Many enterprises are adopting Docker container technologies by moving their applications from VMs. Several CSPs, managed hosting services, and Linux vendors are supporting container technology as an alternative to virtualization.These containers use shared operating systems instead of virtualizing hardware, which is proving to be more efficient than hypervisors with regard to the use of the system's resources. The increased use of container technologies is also compelling vendors to focus on providing better security. As many CSPs and managed hosting services facilitate the move to Docker container technology, the need for security by the vendors will be a major revenue booster for the market.”
According to the report, one driver in market is growing construction of data center facilities. There is a trend among enterprises to adopt cloud-based services for at least one of the operational needs of their businesses. In terms of cloud infrastructure, the CSPs are rapidly expanding their availability zones to come closer to the customer to reduce network latency and facilitate high-availability services. The major CSPs involved in the construction of data centers include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Google, IBM, and Aliyun (Alibaba Group). These CSPs are involved in the construction of mega data center facilities that can operate thousands of IT infrastructures. In 2016, Amazon Web Services added 11 availability zones out of which five were in the Americas, two in EMEA, and four in APAC. In 2016, Google opened two data centers in Oregon (US) and Japan. Microsoft opened data centers in the UK and Germany. It is also attempting to operate data centers under water on a trial basis. IBM opened data centers in the Nordic region and South Africa. Aliyun opened four data center in Australia, Dubai, Germany, and Japan.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is growing complexity of cyber attacks. Most of the applications belonging to organizations are vulnerable to attacks by cyber criminals due to the rapid adoption of cloud-based services, big data analytics, and IoT. The application layer is prone to more security risks as the number of connected devices increases. The open infrastructure of the Internet has increased privacy and security risks. Cyber attacks are leading to the loss of critical business data and also damaging the physical infrastructure of the data center. Many data center are identifying several attempts from hackers to gain access to critical information. This is also shooting up the OPEX that accounts for the resources needed to recover from such security breaches.
