LONDON, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Business Strategy: U.S. Federal Government IT Security Spending Forecast and Market Outlook

This IDC Government Insights report offers a U.S. federal IT security forecast through 2017 plus breakouts, by agency, of the major IT security initiatives currently underway. It also looks at how IT security elements within government offices can be significantly different than what is seen in other industries -- because of the need for physical and national security. Federal IT security spending continues to climb, increasing at an anticipated 3-6% each year through 2017.

"At this time, many agencies are reviewing how their move to cloud-based solutions might affect their overall IT security posture," says Shawn P. McCarthy, research director at IDC Government Insights. "Many are finding that unified threat management solutions are becoming increasingly popular."

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
