Press Release   •   Dec 30, 2015 13:40 IST

Dec 30 2015 Mumbai, India: announces a report on “ Global Market Report on Data Center Security [2015] ”. The analysis starts with introducing the reader to how the data center security industry has evolved over time and how cloud and virtualization has affected the market.

The global market is expected to increase from nearly $6.4 billion in 2015 to $12.1 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.8% for 2015-2020.

This report provides:

-An overview of the global markets and technologies for data center security.

-Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2020.

-A look at key trends in the market including industry trends, growth in mega data centers, increased spending in security solutions, global IT spending trends, and virtualized data center trends.

-Analysis of the market's dynamics, specifically growth drivers which include increasing data traffic and network connections, rising virtualization in data centers, new sophisticated threats and cyber attacks, government regulations and compliance requirements, as well as others.

-Information on existing data center security providers and new and emerging data center security providers as well as discussion about the mergers and acquisitions in this space and how this is changing the data center security landscape.


The objective of this report—Data Center Security: Global Markets—is to describe the ever changing data center security market and the growth opportunity it presents. To indicate the growth opportunity presented by the data center security market to various stakeholders and participants, the report forecasts market demand from 2015 through 2020 with historical data for 2014. The report presents an opportunity for all stakeholders in the data center and data center security markets to understand various growth drivers, key trends, growing markets and technologies.


The report defines data center security as a computer or cyber security applied to data centers, where the data centers can be in physical form or can be virtualized (software-defined data centers). The security applied can be either as software form, hardware form, or can be a mix of software and hardware. Further, for the purpose of this report, security is defined as all forms of processes and mechanisms by which data center equipment, information and services are protected from intended or unintended (and unauthorized) access and change or destruction.

For calculating the market size, the report has considered the following forms of security:

-Intrusion detection system and intrusion prevention system.

-Distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection systems.

-Unified threat management solutions.

-Identity and access management solutions.

-Security information and event management solutions.

Further, for calculating the market and various other figures such as market segmentation, we have considered data center software security, data center hardware security as well as data center security services. However, services that are not directly related to implementation or maintenance such as education and training, and consulting services are out of the scope of this report. Further, hardware security that are not part of cyber security, such as closed circuit television (CCTV) and biometric access control are out of scope of this report.

The analysis starts with introducing the reader to how the data center security industry has evolved over time and how cloud and virtualization has affected the market. Building on that understanding, the study proceeds to identify the following forces driving the market:

-Primary forces are the forces having a direct impact on the data center security space. Secondary forces are the forces that, albeit important, have an indirect impact.

-Key funding and financing in this space, which shows strong support (especially the new entrants).

-Some key challenges that may hinder the growth of this market.

-Key trends visible in the market.

-The top seven industries that are key users of data center security solutions, along with some other industries that are expected to be strong users in the future.

-Demand in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific for data center security solutions.


The report is publishing the study because it has identified data center security as a growing market and presents strong growth opportunity for all stakeholders. The market is dynamic and growing with new developments and adoption from new industries and sectors.


The report identified the top seven industries that are expected to be key users of data center security solutions. This study will provide executives in those industries with critical knowledge required for their transformation from perimeter-based data center security solutions to software-defined data center security solutions. The high-level geographic location-sector analysis provided in this report will help security providers identify high-growth and emerging regions, as well as high growth verticals and sectors in those regions. Additionally, this report will be useful for venture capitalists and other financing bodies that look for the right candidate (security provider) to provide required funding.


To undertake this forecast, analyzed the markets for related technologies and products (products and solutions that are related to the data center security solutions), as available in the product literature and catalogs and in forward-looking statements by public companies. Various press releases, innovation and research and development papers, whitepapers and presentations were also consulted as well as data from other independent sources.

The report carried out a three-pronged approach to forecast and estimate the values for the data center security market.

Firstly, it analyzed spending by various key data center providers and users. The global, regional and sector specific IT security spending was analyzed. Further, other factors such as overall increase in security threats and attacks, and increase in attacks that are more relevant to data centers (such as distributed denial of service attacks) were also analyzed.

To arrive at the final figure, this report also estimated the overall budget allocation to IT and IT security, and the forecast spending and allocation on IT and IT security by major companies around the world.

Secondly, it created a detailed survey and collected opinions from industry and domain experts, company executives and others with strong knowledge in the space to determine a qualitative idea of the trends in the market and where the market is moving. Along with the qualitative data, the survey also pointed to some quantitative data sets and figures.

Lastly, the report applied a bottom-up approach, adding the revenues of all the known companies in the data center space. This process however has limitation since most of the companies offer a range of solutions and products and are not specific to data center security. Hence, this was used as an indication only. The final values were arrived at through triangulation of the above methods. The growth rate was calculated by assigning appropriate weightage to various markets (such as data center and IT security) that impacts the data center security market. Calculation was performed using the growth from the past five to 10 years of the companies in this space, along with other factors such as growth in budget allocation to IT and IT security, growth of security attacks (both frequency and duration), and through analyzing the relation between the rise in attacks and increase in budget allocation to IT and IT security.


The report studied more than 100 companies to obtain data for this report. The companies studied come from a varied background—from IT security to data center to hosting and cloud service provider. It also reviewed reports and studies prepared for peer-reviewed professional literature and reports by the technical staffs. Other data came from scientific and technical conferences, presentations prepared by the companies and associates, press releases, annual reports, whitepapers, investor webinars and other government sources that are publicly available.
