"There is an increasing emphasis on regulations, and data privacy norms are catching up in the region (Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] acting as a blueprint). With increased targeted attacks and more organizations now leveraging digital technologies, an organization's attack surface is now more open and vulnerable. In the face of this constant change, organizations are consciously spending on security technologies with capabilities in analytics and intelligence, advance authentication, privilege access management, cloud security gateways, orchestration, response, and so forth. The security software market saw good traction in 2018 and is forecast to grow strong in the 2018–2023 period," says Gurpal Singh, associate research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Software Research Group.
"The APEJ security appliance market continues to show healthy growth, with major uptake from the firewall and unified threat management (UTM) category. Some of the enhancements to firewall, such as advance threat protection and datacenter security features, have grown the firewall demand among the price-conscious market, which values compliance/governance and regulatory needs, whereas UTM is the preferred solution among large enterprises," says Shahnawas Latiff, associate research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Software Research Group.
