Infonetics: DDoS Prevention Market to Grow by Double Digits Through 2014

DDoS prevention for mobile networks will see strong growth, with a 25% CAGR from 2012 to 2017, thanks to the transition to IP and data, massive increases in capacity, and a new role as a juicy and highly visible target for attacks, according to a new report from Infonetics.

"DDoS prevention appliances are the first line of defense against brute-force attacks like those we saw aimed at U.S. financial institutions last September, and most service providers and large enterprises are investing heavily in them,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. “With the number, size and coverage of DDoS attacks on the rise, we expect revenue for DDoS prevention solutions to grow in the healthy double digits through 2014."

Some additional highlights:

  • Global DDoS prevention appliance revenue grew 30% in 2012, to $275 million
  • The data center segment is now the largest market for DDoS mitigation solutions, surpassing the carrier transport segment
  • The top 2 vendors in the DDoS prevention appliance market are Arbor Networks and Radware
  • With its acquisition of Webscreen, Juniper has stepped into the DDoS market, joining other established networking/security players (including F5 and Fortinet) looking to siphon business from market leader Arbor.
