Telecom security solutions are gaining traction among organizations mainly due to two reasons, firstly to provide advanced prevention and secondly to provide advanced detection and response time to all computing equipment in network. An endpoint device refers to an Internet-capable computing device such as desktop computers, smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other specialized computer hardware such as point of sale (POS) terminals and smart meters. A policy-based approach is recommended for network security, wherein the endpoint devices need to comply with specific criteria before they receive access to network resources.
The rapid adoption of newer technology, strict government regulations, and alterations in security standards are some of the major factors driving the global telecom endpoint security market. The rising number of mobile workers in companies, the introduction of bring your own device (BYOD) model and increasing complexities in cyber security threats and intrusions are some other factors driving the market. The increasing practice of utilization of network-based applications, which necessitates the deployment of background authentication and security process applications.
The global telecom endpoint security market is analyzed on the basis of technology and services, industry vertical, and geography. On the basis of technology and services, antivirus, anti-malware, personal IPS/IDS, mobile application management, endpoint encryption, antispyware, mobile device development, personal firewall, behavioral blocking software, and configuration and patch management are the segments of the market.
