The growth of cyber threats such as malware, viruses, ransomware, BEC, phishing, botnets and more are of great concern to companies and consumers. Email is still the number one threat vector. It is the most used mode of corporate communication. In the last few years the complexity and volume of threats have increased significantly. Many Web based attacks are generated by links and attachments to email. Ransomware has become a significant threat in the last year. Endpoint devices such as PCs, servers, and mobile are the most critical security perimeter for an organization. These trends are driving the need for improved endpoint security solutions. Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) offers layered security. EPP is more than simply antivirus. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is emerging as an important function in EPP but also as stand alone versions with more advanced capabilities. EDR is a proactive security solution versus the more reactive security solution offered by EPP. The market has two dominant players but also a large number of security vendors and is highly fragmented. In the last few years the market has attracted new vendors both established security vendors and startups. It is a market poised for consolidation as vendors seek to fill out their portfolios and acquire new IP.--BEGIN PROMO--

"New malicious email, Internet-based attacks, and ransomware are increasing every year, creating higher costs within organizations," says Tony Massimini, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "The demand for qualified security professionals exceeds the supply. Endpoint devices are the main entry points for hackers.  Organizatioof all sizes need powerful tools and with streamlined workflows.  These tools need to be effective but also fast and easy to use. Endpoint security vendors are in a crowded and highly competitive market in which they must innovate to meet customer needs and remain viable."

Connected ecosystem will leverage the connectivity of devices for information sources thereby helping in more accurate analysis of data coming from different sources and improving productivity for the organizations and individual. However, with the connected infrastructure, security is one of the key concern that is hindering wide-spread IoT adoption globally. Traditional security solutions are developed on the concept of securing a single device for a specific application sector. However, for a connected ecosystem, where variety of devices are connected together and are not restricted to the organization network only, traditional security solutions fail to provide the comprehensive protection across the various layers of the network. This demands for a more all-in-one package security solution that can analyze every single node of the connected network and also offer the flexibility to be used across any application sectors for optimal interoperability. This research service identifies the key technology development areas within cyber security ecosystem and also highlights the loop holes within key sectors that could be compromised due to lack of a comprehensive security solution in place. In brief, this research service provides the following: A brief snapshot of the benefits of connected ecosystem Key challenges with security faced by organizations in a connected ecosystem Key areas of technology innovation for the connected ecosystem security Primary attack surfaces within the key sectors Key innovations facilitating security specific to key sectors Major standardization activities and alliances enhancing security for key sectors Thu, 1 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Indian Network Security Market, Forecast to 2021 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=P9A5-01-00-00-00 With businesses around the world changing at a fast pace, the dynamics built around them is changing rapidly as well. Enterprises are investing in technologies that are low on capital yet offer the best outcome on productivity. Over the last one and half decades, disruptive technologies in social, mobility, analytics, and cloud (SMAC) have emerged. Enterprises are leveraging on these to extract benefits on cost, efficiency, and value. While all of these are sweet spots for businesses, security remains an area of concern for all of them. If one has patiently tracked the growth of cyber security since its existence, it would be an agreed fact that over the last 10 years the awareness among enterprises has increased several folds in India. Earlier there used to be one chief information officer (CIO), who would manage all angles of technology within a business. Now, however, most organizations have a chief information security officer (CISO) who is capable of strategizing on cyber security aspects with a separate budget he is armed with. Securing the network of the enterprise continues to remain the basic cyber security arrangement in protecting digital assets. A new age firewall has become much more intelligent and is capable of identifying, stopping, and remedying threats entering into the network, thanks to the emergence of Next-generation Firewalls (NGFW). Other separate network security solutions have become powerful with the likes of IDS/IPS and SSL VPN. It is expected that enterprises will buy network security products from vendors that can showcase cyber security capabilities to fight advanced network threats. The research service titled Indian Network Security Market in India, Forecast to 2021 analyzes the state of network security in the country in 2016. With an aim of providing the readers with a comprehensive understanding of the market (current and future), a well-tested step-by-step research methodology has been followed, which is an ideal mix of primary and secondary research. The market research starts with defining the network security market, the mega trends affecting the growth of network security in India, industry verticals impacting the network security adoption, and an overview on the cyber security regulations. The drivers and restraints to the market are being identified and their impacts on growth are measured. Market sizing and forecasting for the overall and sub-segments of network security (Firewall/IP Sec, IDS/IPS and SSL VPN) are being estimated along with the market engineering measurements. Finally, the growth opportunities are being identified that Frost & Sullivan believes to create differentiators for network security vendors. Key Questions this Study will Answer: (1) What is the current state of the overall network security market in India? (2) What are the specific drivers and challenges to the growth of network security in India? (3) What are the market size, vertical split, and trends for network security? (4) How will the market look like by the end of 2021? (5) How are each of the individual network security applications performing? (6) What does the future hold for network security in the country?

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 00:00:00 +0100 Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) Revolutionizing Healthcare http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=D7B0-01-00-00-00 As consumers take more responsibility of their own health and demand better access to their medical data, the process of extracting this data to provide meaningful insights needs an incremental change. In the next few years, advanced, connected and smarter patient monitoring devices will be available to consumers that will be able to gather real-time data including genetics and lifestyle behavior. This will help the IoMT market grow at a significant rate. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is an amalgamation of medical devices and applications that can connect to healthcare information technology (IT) systems using networking technologies. It connects patients to their physicians and allows transfer of medical data over a secure network, which in turn reduces unnecessary hospital visits and reduces the burden on healthcare systems largely. This research service evaluates the role played by networked devices and analytics in enabling digital healthcare transformation. Key questions answered in this study: 1. How internet of medical things (IoMT) differ from mobile healthcare technologies in improving the quality and reliability of healthcare infrastructure? 2. What is the role played by advanced computing techniques and analytics in secure storage, transmission and decoding of voluminous data over long distances by the use of IoMT? 3. How can IoMT enable clinicians to reliably use medical data in the process of making decisions for improving treatment for a variety disorders? 4. What is the role played by IoMT in securing critical clinical data from cyber and phishing attacks, preventing loss of medical data or leak of patient's medical history?
