Western Europe IT Security Sales Set To Explode - 7/25/01 

The market for information technology security products ? both software
and hardware ? will more than triple in Western Europe by 2005 compared
with last year, according to a new report from IDC. 

By Ned Stafford, Newsbytes

IDC, a global market intelligence and advisory firm, expects sales of IT
security products in Western Europe to reach $6.2 billion in 2005, up
from $1.8 billion in 2000. Sales of hardware security products, although
still relatively small last year, are expected to grow at twice the rate
of software products until 2005. 

?The security software market will lose a significant amount of market
share to the hardware market over this period while still remaining the
largest sub-market," said Thomas Raschke, program manager of IDC's
European Internet Security research. 

By the end of 2005, hardware products will account for more than 42
percent of total revenue in the Western European security market, he
said. The largest hardware sub-market is the firewall appliance market
while biometrics, tokens and smart cards are expected to expand by about
50 percent. 

Raschke, based in Copenhagen, told Newsbytes there were several reason
for the explosive growth in hardware security products, including ease
of use, less expensive prices and the ability to address the needs of
small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME's). 

One of the most important factors spurring growth in both hardware and
software is that IT security is no longer a luxury for businesses, but
has become a ?must have,? he said. 

And a new impetus is just around the corner. 

"The next wave of security applications will be driven by an increasing
reliance upon mobile devices such as cellular phones, Web phones,
wireless handheld computers, and information appliances," he said. 

As computing become more and more mobile based, encryption, PKI,
authentication, authorization and administration will become even more
critical infrastructure issues, he said. 

As for security software, the fastest growing segment is ?security 3A
software? (authorization, authentication and administration). The second
fastest growth rate will be for encryption software. 

The top European IT security software vendors are currently Network
Associates, with a market share of 9.7 percent; IBM-Tivoli, with 9.2
percent; Symantec, with 8.3 percent; Computer Associates, with 7.7
percent; and Check Point, with 7.6 percent. 

The study defined Western Europe as 14 of the 15 members of the European
Union (excluding Luxembourg), plus Norway and Switzerland.
