VPN and Security Services Markets to Reach $37B in 2009

CAMPBELL, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 6, 2006 -- The VPN services market took in a whopping $23 billion in 2005 and is expected to grow another 22% to hit $29 billion in 2009. Meanwhile, the managed security services market grew to nearly $5 billion in 2005 and is forecast to jump 68% to $8 billion in 2009.

Both markets are increasingly lucrative due to increased worldwide deployment of MPLS and the complexity of deploying VPN and security solutions, says Infonetics Research in its latest market size and forecast report, VPN and Security Services.

"The number and variety of attacks affecting most organizations is increasing at an alarming rate, and the technologies needed to effectively combat all of the possible attacks are simply too difficult for many organizations to deploy themselves," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for VPNs and security at Infonetics Research. "In particular, attacks aimed at specific types of content (from business applications like Oracle and SAP to instant messenger traffic) are wreaking havoc on organizations -- and not just big companies; companies of all sizes are being affected."

--  Every year through 2009, IPSec revenue will decline, while MPLS,

    remote access VPNs in 2005
