Infonetics Research: Network security market up in Q2, led by strong gains by Juniper, Check Point, Cisco

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Market research firm Infonetics Research ( released its second quarter (2Q10) Network Security Appliances and Software market size, market share, and forecast report.


"As we expected, the network security appliance and software market mostly followed normal seasonal patterns in the second quarter, growing slightly over the first quarter. Cisco emerged from the component supply issues reported last quarter and noted that all security products are now shipping with standard lead times. Juniper and Check Point both saw growth across a wide variety of product types, customer segments, and geographies, with no one major contributor to strength in 2Q10. Looking back a year to the pit of the recession, this market is up 21% from 2Q09," notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.


  • Worldwide network security appliance and software revenue increased 7% worldwide between 1Q10 and 2Q10, totaling $1.4 billion
  • Infonetics Research projects the network security appliance and software market will grow to nearly $7 billion in 2014
  • The top three vendors were up in 2Q10, with Juniper leading growth, increasing revenue 11.9% sequentially, followed by Check Point with a 9.0% increase and Cisco with an 8.3% bump
