Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j7dbp2/global_content) has announced the addition of the "Global Content Security Gateway Market 2014-2018: McAfee, Blue Coat Systems, Cisco Systems, Websense & Symantec Dominate the market" report to their offering.
The increasing demand for SaaS-based security solutions has also outpaced the demand for traditional software and hardware-based content security gateway solutions.
Technological advancements are forcing vendors to offer SaaS-based content security gateway solutions to their customers. Companies are also increasingly adopting these solutions because of the various benefits they offer, which include the availability of pay-per-use models and the provision of instant access. SaaS-based security solutions also automatically update the product, thereby enabling it to respond to the latest security threats. The growing requirement from companies (ranging from small to large enterprises) is increasing the demand for SaaS-based security solutions.
The Global Content Security Gateway market has several drivers, the main one being the increasing adoption of mobile devices. The high demand for uninterrupted connectivity between a corporate network and employee mobile devices has increased the adoption of mobile devices in enterprises. Therefore, enterprises are increasingly adopting content security gateway solutions to secure their networks from the growing security threats and to provide their employees with secure access to confidential information.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges hindering market growth is the difficulty in developing efficient security solutions. Security threats keep evolving and increasing in complexity because of ongoing technological advancements. Viruses, spyware, and even spam are becoming more complex, difficult to detect, and control. Identifying and preventing security threats from infecting and spreading throughout a network continues to be a major challenge in the market.
