This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like Bosch Security Systems, Check Point Software Technologies, Cisco Systems, Fortinet, Honeywell International, Intel, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Trend Micro, and Tyco International.

According to Abhishek Sharma, a lead analyst for data center research at Technavio, “Many infrastructure vendors and application developers are incorporating security mechanisms to overcome increased security threats and breaches. However, the vulnerability of the data center network increases with its complexity. As a result, there are continuous innovations being made with regard to firewalls and software-based security tools for securing critical business information as many new vulnerabilities are identified.

Flaws in the security design can lead to potential security breaches. Instances of security lapses, tailgating, and impersonation can also lead to unauthorized entry. Such concerns are propelling the demand for data center security services in the global market.

Increase in the use of Docker container technology

Docker containers enable the deployment of distributed applications is more easier manner. Several enterprises are adopting Docker container technologies by moving their applications from VMs. As many CSPs and managed hosting services facilitate the move to Docker container technology, the need for security by the vendors in will drive growth of the global data center security market.

Implementation of software-defined security

Software-defined security aids enterprises to enable the deployment and automation of network security controls using software instead of traditional security controls. Organizations across the globe are increasingly adopting software-defines security owing to advantages such as facilitation of dynamic security domains across cloud, mobile, and traditional network systems. Even though software-defined security was introduced in the market recently, it is expected to gain popularity among enterprises that are willing to adopt complete SDDC solutions over the next four years.
