Many varying trends require constant monitoring in physical security areas such as video surveillance and access control. From aggressive price competition, supply base consolidation and China’s continued prevalence, to smart home uptake and the continuing movement from standard to high definition, timely market intelligence is more important than ever.
Cybersecurity is a top-of-mind IT issue for everyone from the smallest businesses to the largest cloud and telecom service providers. Systems and networks are facing an increasingly hostile threat environment, and massive data breaches are occurring at an alarming rate. The companies that build the solutions that secure users and networks — firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, DDoS mitigation, web/mail security, advanced threat protection — need to understand what is going on in their markets and what buyers are seeking.
On the digital security and ID side, the market is constantly evolving to adapt to changes in the physical and virtual worlds. This results in ongoing changes to the credentials that are required to keep information safe: the SIM cards in phones, the secure chips in contactless payment cards or the chips in e-passports.
