Infonetics Research: Content security gateway market up in Q2, led by McAfee (soon to be Intel?)

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Market research firm Infonetics Research (http://twitter.com/infonetics) released its second quarter (2Q10) Content Security Appliances and Software market size, market share, and forecast report.

ANALYST NOTE

"The biggest news of the year in the content security space came on August 19, when Intel announced their intention to acquire McAfee. Keeping in mind that Intel entered and exited the security systems business once before with their brief stint selling VPN concentrators years ago, this new acquisition could make the content security market share picture cloudy, creating opportunity for other vendors to take market share," notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

CONTENT SECURITY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Content security appliance and software revenue increased 1.5% between 1Q10 and 2Q10, hitting $650.4 million
  • Year-over-year, 2Q10 vs 2Q09, the security appliance market is up 18.9%
  • McAfee maintains first place for total content security gateway revenue (appliances and software) in 2Q10; Blue Coat is second, Cisco third
