Security Opportunities

The need for security is ever-present and ever-changing. Security solutions never go out of style, thanks to cyber crime threats, data theft by employees and others, lost laptops, regulatory compliance, viruses and a host of other concerns that force companies to spend money to protect their corporate and customer data.

The opportunities for selling security solutions are plentiful. According to IDC, the network security market is $6.4 billion and unified threat management market is forecast to grow 13 percent. Gartner agrees with the lucrative aspect of this market and predicts that the endpoint protection platform market should reach $3 billion this year.

In fact, IT analyst group Gartner forecasts a compound annual growth rate of almost 14 percent through 2011 for the threat management security appliance market, as well as a 9 percent increase for the SSL/VPN market through 2013. Even the private network/firewall equipment market is expected to rebound this year with a growth of nearly seven percent.

How do you make the most of these opportunities? Tech Data has the resources and know-how to help you grow your business success.
