Jeff Wilson (pictured), Principal Analyst, Security, Infonetics Research forecasts that "Global revenue for DDoS prevention solutions will end the 2011 year up 52% compared to 2010 .. Combined, all segments of the DDoS prevention appliance market are forecast to grow at a 23% CAGR during the five years from 2010 to 2015; mobile leads with a 42% CAGR .. Arbor Networks leads the overall DDoS prevention appliance market as well as some (but not all) of the segments by deployment location".
A second report by Jeff provides "insight into incumbent, mobile, security specialist, competitive and cable operators’ security investment plans and how they perceive various vendors in the network security market".
The survey shows that "Nearly every service provider interviewed by Infonetics expects to increase security spending over the next year, in absolute dollars and as a percent of capex .. The biggest drivers for service providers to deploy new security solutions are protection of customer data, network uptime, changes in the data center, and the increasing number and complexity of security threats"
