Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “Advances in technology have led to the emergence of over 1 billion websites as of 2014. In addition, a rise in the number of e-commerce website users has increased the frequency of online transactions. These have led to an increase in web-based security threats. To combat the issue, the PCI has introduced DSS, with companies adhering to this policy to enable secure transactions. Failure to comply with these standards can result in high penalties, and companies can be barred from performing online transactions. Therefore, organizations are adopting security solutions such as IDS and IPS to prevent threats from disrupting the normal functioning of systems and applications.”
According to the report, advanced and sophisticated threats targeting devices, people, and networks pose a significant challenge for industries such as financial organizations, retail, healthcare, and manufacturing. Rapid changes in IT infrastructure have given rise to advanced modes of data theft, disrupting business models. In addition, the emergence of social networking websites has made it easy for attackers to extract information from vulnerable users. These factors have triggered the usage of security devices such as IDS/IPS in organizations.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by vendors is the high implementation costs.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
