Unified Threat Management Market (UTM) 2014 Analysis & 2019 Forecasts adds "Unified Threat Management Market by Appliance (Hardware, Software, Virtual), Services, Managed UTM, Distribution Channel (Direct, VAR's, Distributors), Organization Size (SOHO, SMB, Enterprises) - Global Market Forecasts & Anal

DALLAS, April 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Unified Threat Management (UTM) is defined as a solution that integrates multiple point security technologies into a single network appliance. These solutions are generally easy to use and are cost-effective, which in turn delivers high value to end users in terms of space and energy efficiency. These appliances are also used for streamlining of management processes, reducing administrative overhead, and in maintenance burden.

Unified Threat Management market comprises mainly of appliances and services. Appliances include hardware, software and virtual. Hardware appliances accounts for the highest market share. On the other hand, software and virtual appliances are also expected to grow significantly. The services segment includes support and maintenance, and managed UTM as sub-segments. Out of this, support and maintenance accounts for the major market share.

Few high growth markets include:-

  • Small Offices Home Offices (SOHO): SOHO would rapidly adopt UTM solutions due to its extensive benefits such as low cost, ease of deployment, and configuration capabilities.
  • Virtual Appliances: This market is anticipated to grow with extensive integration of appliances with the cloud.
  • Banking and Financial Institutions (BFSI): BFSI is one of the major end users of UTM solutions. Over the period of time, it is expected that BFSI would leverage the maximum benefits from UTM solutions.
  • Distributors: The distributors hold a significant position in the UTM market. Distributors nearly control 65-70% of the whole market.

The key playing fields are virtual appliances in the UTM appliances market. Virtual appliances are widely adopted with integration of cloud and managed services. These appliances offer network security to virtual data centers.  These appliances provide a complete web and email security solution that protects SMB's from new malware, malicious websites, phishing attacks, botnets, and other threats.

The BFSI vertical will account for the largest market share throughout the forecast period. However, there are few revenue pockets, namely government and utilities, healthcare, retail, and telecom and IT that will witness significant growth in this period.

The rise in the advanced threats such as SQL injection, cross site scripting, and sophisticated DDOS attacks which have targeted the SMB's across the world, has led to the increase in demand for next generation firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and web security gateway. This demand enforces the organizations to replace one's existing network security solutions with the UTM products. The UTM products are widely adopted by the SMB's, especially in the regions of North America (NA) and Western Europe, due to the product aging of its existing network security solutions.

The major challenge that the UTM market faces is lack of acceptance in the enterprise market. Enterprises generally demand solutions for high performance and network throughput. However, UTM solutions lacks in underlying capabilities. Hence, vendors in this segment are strategizing to improve on one's product line, especially dedicated to the large enterprises. The other major challenge in this market is the increasing UTM product price. Over the period of time, UTM vendors have added new functionalities to the existing products, thereby, raising the average price. However, this high product price would hamper the UTM's growth among Small Offices Home offices (SOHO) and small sized enterprises. This is because these enterprises lack in funds to buy sophisticated UTM solutions. Moreover, the prices are still anticipated to grow significantly due to extensive product development.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.
