Mountain View, CA, United States, 2010/05/11 - Improving adoption rates of technologies and services such as secure virtual private network (VPN), secure video, and other new technologies is expected to be mirrored in the security test equipment market.
The increasing popularity of Web 2.0 services, cloud computing, instant messaging and mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, Inc. (WiMAX) has also made a strong case for security test equipment among device vendors and enterprise markets.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (testandmeasurement.frost.com), World Security Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $167 million in 2008, and estimates this to reach $654.6 million in 2013.

"With the integration of voice, video, and data, the demand for security test equipment has increased greatly in 2008," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Srihari Padmanabhan. "This also encourages the network operators to invest more in buying the latest security test equipment so they can increase the value of their service offerings."
The improved awareness about and need for security testing, investment, and low operational costs are prompting companies to invest in future upgrades and novel test equipment to stay protected against fresh attacks.
One of the main challenges in the security test equipment market is to cope with the ever-changing attacking techniques and new malwares and spywares. Vendors have to provide cutting-edge products to detect these attacks on networks. Another significant competitive factor is price. With the evolution of technologies, test equipment vendors are under great pressure from customers to reduce prices.
"To counter these technology and price issues, companies need to look for strategic acquisitions and partnerships with new companies to stay ahead of the competition," notes Padmanabhan. "Manufacturers also have to increase their time to market so that they can release products early in the technology lifecycle."
