The distributed denial of service (DDoS) prevention appliance market grew 23 percent in the third quarter last year from a year ago, to $135 million, according to market research firm, IHS. 

“So much of the activity and growth in the DDoS mitigation appliance space is being driven from the data center. Enterprise data center deployments are growing particularly well, and major cloud, hosting, large service provider and major internet brands continue to invest in high-performance DDoS mitigation to protect their data centers from escalating attacks and deliver customized solutions to their hosting and cloud customers,” said Jeff Wilson, research director for cybersecurity technology at IHS.

In the quarter, IHS said Arbor ranked first and Radware second in DDoS prevention appliance revenue. IHS said that volumetric attacks are bifurcating into very-high velocity/bandwidth attacks and lower-bandwidth attacks, driving adoption of hybrid solutions and sales of hardware at the lower end of the market.
