According to the latest research by Infonetics on mobile infrastructure security markets, the market is expected to record a massive growth with the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) projected at 42% from 2013 to 2018.

Network security is becoming of the key areas that Operators need to enhance as traffic on the data network increases rapidly as the consumption of data surges, especially with rich media content becoming more popular among mobile users. To keep with this growth and ensure the resilience of their networks, Mobile Operators are looking into various solutions to safeguard their networks' security, driving the Gi/SGi firewall spending to almost double its present figure by the year 2018.


Key highlights from Infonetics;

  • New Gi/SGi firewall solutions designed to solve a variety of mobile traffic control and security issues are imminent

  • The major vendors in the Gi/SGi firewall space are the top players in firewalls: Check Point, Fortinet, and Juniper

  • In the SMS/MMS security gateway market, AdaptiveMobile and Cloudmark together currently account for the majority of revenue

  • Key to the ongoing success of Adaptive and Cloudmark will be how they transition their footprints from buyers looking to meet regulations and save money to those wanting to increase the security of their networks and subscribers

"Mobile infrastructure security is incredibly hot right now. Providers are trying to protect subscribers and revenue by investing in SMS/MMS security gateways to the tune of a massive 42% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 to 2018. Operators are also trying to protect the boundary between their networks and the internet. Gi/SGi firewall revenue is on a serious ramp as well, driven by the huge LTE deployments around the globe that have left many mobile providers with massive all-IP networks that need protection from every type of threat on the internet.”
