The “Worldwide Endpoint Security 2010-2014 Forecast” November 2010, market analysis report identifies server security as a new sub-segment of the endpoint security market.
Revenue was up 13.2 per cent in the third quarter from global server sales, according to the IDC research firm.
With shipments of virtualised servers growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14 per cent from 2009 to 2014, “IDC expects that this robust growth in server virtualisation will continue through 2014 as datacenter adoption is increasingly considered mainstream in mature economies and as organisations in emerging regions look for datacenter efficiencies while they rapidly increase their server investments over the period”.
As more enterprises use virtual servers, they will be searching for security solutions that will protect the server hosting the virtualised environment, the hypervisor, and shield the virtual servers from malware and hacker attacks.
“With data center consolidation, along with the rise of virtualisation, and cloud computing applications, more and more computing power and data itself are moving into data centers and servers,” said Eva Chen, Trend Micro managing director.
“It doesn’t matter whether the servers are physical, virtual, inside the corporate data center, or in the cloud, these servers and, more importantly, the data need to be secure. Server security market leadership is strategically important for Trend Micro, and we intend to continue to innovate to develop breakthrough solutions solving real customer problems for cloud security.”
