The analysts forecast the Global Security and Vulnerability Management market to grow at a CAGR of 9.35 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing use of diverse operating systems. The Global Security and Vulnerability Management market has also been witnessing the widespread adoption of mobile devices in workplaces. However, the availability of open source solutions could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The report, the Global Security and Vulnerability Management Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Security and Vulnerability Management market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The increased use of mobile devices has led to an increase in mobile malware threats. Mobile devices have become potential targets, particularly for cyber criminals and malware authors, primarily because of the sensitive information found on mobile devices, including passwords and address books.
Mobile devices integrated with an Android platform are most susceptible to malware targets, representing 97 percent of the total mobile malware. The increased use of mobile phones has further accelerated mobile networking, which in turn has increased the threat of mobile malware. This in turn fosters the demand for security and vulnerability management solutions, thereby contributing to the growth of the Global Security and Vulnerability Management market.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in the market is increased use of diverse operating systems. Currently, organizations are increasingly integrating diverse operating systems and applications because of the increased information flow across their networks. As a result, they are exposed to cyber-attacks such as deployment of viruses, botnets, and various email scams. Therefore, to eliminate such attacks, the demand for security and vulnerability management solutions has been increasing.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges in this market is the availability of open source solutions. Open source software provides customers with a platform to detect and fix security and vulnerability issues. Customers often opt for open source solutions as they can copy, modify, and reconstruct the source code without having to pay for the software. Such features of open source solutions are a serious challenge for the Global Security and Vulnerability Management market.
