The mounting threat of viruses and other security breaches can have far-reaching implications on data center operations, and consequently, on enterprises and their customers. This turns the spotlight on data center security, a service that has evolved into a massive market of its own in the last few years. According to a report by Transparency Market Research, titled ‘Data Centre Security Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015–2023’, the global data center security market will receive an impetus in the form of sophisticated hacker attacks and the rapid emergence of complicated computer viruses. In order to prevent the impact of these events on the intellectual property of organizations as also on sensitive data, the demand for data center security services will see a noticeable upswing.
For the purpose of this study, the market for data center security has been segmented on the basis of the following criteria: solutions and services, size of data center facilities, end-user industries, environments, and geography. The segment of security services and solutions is sub-segmented into: logical and physical solutions and services. The sub-segment of physical data center security services and solutions is further segmented into the following: monitoring solutions, access control, video surveillance, and analysis and modeling. On similar lines, the report also further drills down into the logical security solutions and services segment to create the following sub-segments: data center security, threat and application security, and access control and compliance management.
The global data center security market by environments is further segmented into col-location environments and cloud provider environments. The end-users of data center security services and solutions that have been studied by whittling into segments into the report include: BFSI, government, public sector and utilities, healthcare, and IT and telecommunication. The global data center security market, segmented on the basis of size of facility are: large, mega, small, medium, and modular or portable data centers.
As enterprises take all measures possible to protect their IT infrastructure against both external and internal threats, data center security solutions become a critical tool across the aforementioned end-use industries. With the growing dominance of cloud computing, especially, where the cloud provider does not have direct access to the data center, concerns about security breaches are compounded. As data center virtualization sweeps a massive change through the IT industry, the demand for sophisticated solutions for data center security is expected to exhibit appreciable growth. The point where data center security fuses with the virtualization trend is projected as being a turning point for the global data center security market.
However, TMR analysts warn that companies in the market could lose out on business from small and medium enterprises given the inability of these enterprises to allocate large sums of money on data center security solutions and services.
Companies that have a notable presence in the global data center security market include: Cisco Systems Inc., Citrix Systems, Inc., VMware, Inc., Trend Micro Inc., and McAfee, Inc.
