A new research has forecasted that the enterprise firewall market is set to witness increasing growth globally by 2021, as organizations continue to embrace new policies.
New policies like bring your own device (BYOD) and cloud computing that are exposing networks across the world and increasing enterprise security threats manifold.
The report titled Enterprise Firewall Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecasts 2015-2021 has been published by Zion Market Research, and it analyzes the latest trends and developments in the global enterprise firewall market.
Firewall is a network security device that controls the flow of traffic, putting up a barrier between networks — essentially serving as a middle layer between trusted and untrusted networks that filters the network traffic.
And while the basic function of the firewall is routing and setting barriers, increasingly these are also being used for URL filtering and blocking, bandwidth management, intrusion detection, content policy enforcement, and even antivirus.
Government regulations as well as compliance requirements make businesses and organizations opt for enterprise firewalls.
This is the biggest driving factor for the global enterprise firewall market.
The report forecasts that cost effective and customized firewall solutions are expected to provide great growth opportunities in the upcoming years, as more and more small and medium businesses are now adopting the enterprise firewall technology.
