Global Wireless LAN Security Market 2016-2020

About the Wireless LAN Security Market

WLAN is a wireless Ethernet connectivity between client devices such as desktops computers, PDAs, and the wireless hub connected to the physical network. WLANs follow the wired network's traditional hub-spoke configuration and consists of the following two components including wireless clients and APs. The growth in the market is because of the adoption of smartphones and the need for high data transmission speed across networks. Enterprises use WLAN because it is cost-effective compared to wired networks that require infrastructure.Based on technology, WLAN can be segmented into WPA2, WPA, WEP, and no-encryption. WPA2 is the most advanced protocol available for WLAN security. It is the most widely used WLAN security technology. WEP is the oldest WLAN security algorithm available. However, its adoption is decreasing with the growing availability of advanced security protocols. The rate of WLANs with no encryption is decreasing every year.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global WLAN security market to grow at a CAGR of 19.93% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Wireless LAN Security Market 2016-2020



Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global WLAN security market: Aruba Networks, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, Ruckus, and Symantec.



Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AirTight Networks, Broadcom, Brocade Communication Systems, Dell SonicWALL, Enterasys Networks, Highwall Enterprise, and Motorola Solutions.



Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The recent increase in the volume of transmitted data across the network and the data stored in storage devices such a server has led to the introduction of several advanced computing techniques. These computing techniques have intensified the demand for WLAN, resulting in an increased need for WLAN security solutions to protect the network from cyber-attacks. With the growing adoption of Internet-of-things (IoT) and BYOD globally, the demand for a modernized network structure will increase significantly, which will eventually augment the need for WLAN security solutions during the predicted period.”



According to the report, the growth of individual WLAN is increasing due to strong growth in emerging markets. The wireless industry is extremely competitive, where suppliers have to deal with the continually changing technologies and enhanced product cycles. With advances in technology, there is an increase in adoption of new methods of technology and investments in WLAN products and services in developing countries. Many developing countries are adopting WLAN, which is resulting in growth of the WLAN security market.



Further, the report states that the availability of wireless connectivity provides users with remote access from any location. It provides the flexibility of adopting the BYOD policy in organizations. Protecting wireless networks from security breaches is a challenge for organizations. It is difficult to maintain the integrity of data unless there is an introduction of firewalls in the network and the encryption of data. The vulnerability of a network to attacks increases the risks of data leakage, which can affect the confidentiality of data.
