Software-defined Security Market: Increasing Concern about Security of Virtualized and Automated Infrastructure to Drive Demand

San Francisco, California, October 17, 2017: TMR Research has published a new report, titled, “Software-defined Security Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 – 2025”. As per the report, the escalating demand for better security, quick response, and high use of cloud services are fueling the growth of the global software-defined security market. As software-defined security is a computer embedded network security architecture that syndicates network security and defensive protection, it is increasingly in demand. This architecture leverages both internal and external sources and is designed to be scalable, secure, and modular. All these factors are driving the growth of the global software-defined security market.

Enterprises in a desperate need to improve and enhance the delivery of IT-enabled services need to modify the infrastructure of their information security. This is leading to an increase in the adoption of next-generation data centers which is software defined data center or SDDC. For virtualized data centers, SDDC is increasingly becoming popular as next generation network security. For securing data and networking resources in SDDCs and for implementing advanced and automated security controls, software-defined security is important and this will be a major growth driver for this market. Software-defined security offers protection independent of any servers and individual security devices and this is one of the important benefits, owing to which the market is slated to grow at a rapid pace.

On the other hand, some of the factors hampering the growth of this market include the lack of skilled personnel and the increasing incidences of hacking. Another challenge in the market is the protection of data. On a bright note however, the ongoing technological advancements and increasing investments in this field will offer lucrative growth opportunities in the future and reduce the impact of these restraints. As organizations are increasingly concerned about the security of the virtualized and automated infrastructure before implementing software-defined networking (SDN), the market for software-defined security will grow. Software-defined security helps in automating and placement of network security controls in organizations by making use of software rather than conventional security controls. By implementing specific policies that distinct and tailored as per particular business needs, this SDSec is helping enterprises secure their network.

The report not only discusses key drivers and restraints, and their impact analysis, but also, the recent or latest trends that are likely to have an impact on the market in the near future. The impact of any trend, be it negative or positive is analyzed without any bias. Thus, the report gives a correct analysis and overview of the global software-defined security market. It takes into account the past and present market figures, to predict the future market size. Also, the future opportunities within the market that will drive the growth prospects of the market are discussed.

The report discusses the software-defined security market’s performance on a regional level as well as global level. Among regions such as North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the the Middle East and Africa, it is estimated that the software-defined security market will be most lucrative in North America. The growing awareness among the people about the benefits of SDS can be attributed as the key factor boosting the growth of the market in North America. In addition to North America, the Middle East and Africa will also be an attractive market for software-defined security. The growing technological advancements in this part of the world will help the market to grow. Leading players within the market are: EMC Corporation, Juniper Networks, Inc., Symantec Corporation, Fortinet, Inc., VMware, Inc., and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.
