[Infonetics]: "Buyers are moving to managed security services to deal with increased attack volume and complexity"
A new research by Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security, Infonetics Research, finds that "Buyers are moving to managed security services to deal with increased attack volume and complexity, manage security product sprawl, deliver consistent security for a distributed workforce and device population, and provide security for cloud infrastructure"
" .. the global cloud and CPE managed security service market grew another 12% in 2012, to $13 billion"
"While the majority of security service revenue in 2012 came from CPE-based services, by 2017 CPE revenue is expected to dip to 50% of total revenue; Infonetics forecasts sales of cloud-based security services to grow 69% over the next 5 years".
