  1. 1. The Impact of Next Generation Firewall: How Security Can Enable New Strategies Chris Rodriguez, Industry Analyst Network Security Sept. 1, 2011
  2. 2. Today’s Presenters Chris Rodriguez, Industry Analyst Frost & Sullivan 2
  3. 3. Focus Points• Introduction• Firewall Market Overview• Market Trends• Realizing the Full Value of Next Generation Firewall Capabilities• What Next Generation Means for the Firewall Market• Key Industry Participants• Conclusion 3
  4. 4. Firewalls: Rise of the NextGenicons MegaTrend: Convergence vsTrendimus Prime: Application/Identity Awareness 4
  5. 5. Hot Topics• Convergence• Application/identity awareness• Content awareness• Major scalability• Improved performance• Value-adding features 5
  6. 6. Market Overview Firewall Market Evolution Global, 1985–2010 Large vendors Vendors Vendors begin to adapt emerging First packet Application begin offering consolidate firewall filter firewalls layer firewalls Deep Packet security functions technologies developed developed Inspection into firewall 1985 1990 2000 2003 2006 2010 Security breaches Stateful Firewall solutions Proprietary ASICs Firewalls capable demonstrate the firewalls now include IPsec used to improve of securing traffic need for perimeter developed VPN capabilities performance based on defence application and user identification 6
  7. 7. Market DefinitionsEnterprise Firewall:• Stateful packet filtering• IPsec virtual private network (VPN)Unified Threat Management:• Combines enterprise firewall, IPsec VPN, intrusion prevention, gateway anti- virus, URL filtering, anti-spam, and anti-spyware• Sometimes includes secure sockets layer (SSL) VPN and/or data leakage prevention (DLP)Next Generation Firewall:• Includes application aware and identity-based firewall filtering• Must include basic stateful packet filtering and VPN• May also include an intrusion prevention system, but additional functionality qualifies the product as an unified threat management (UTM) product 7
  8. 8. Market Growth Firewall Market Unit and Revenue Forecast Global, 2008–2015• The firewall market reached $3.2 billion dollars in 2010.• Growth was slow in 2008 and 2009 because of the economic recession, but as the economy recovers the firewall market will grow 6.5 percent from 2010-2015. Note: All figures are rounded; the base year is 2010. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis. 8
  9. 9. Major DriversFear of a high-profile security breach:• TJX Companies (2007), 90 million customer records, $64 million in lawsuits.• Heartland Payment Systems (2009), 130 million customer records, $68.2 million in lawsuits.• Sony PSN (2011), 102 million customer records.• Epsilon (2011), customer data for 50 businesses such as CitiGroup, Best Buy, Target, and Capital One. Source: Open Security Foundation and and Frost & Sullivan analysis. 9
  10. 10. Major Drivers (continued)Regulatory compliance mandates require the use of network security products:• Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) requires businesses to maintain minimum standards of protection for cardholders’ sensitive account and transaction information• California Security Breach Information Act require breached businesses to publicly report incidents • PCI DSS • Firewall/IPsec VPN • SOX • IPS • FISMA • Gateway AV • HIPAA • Anti-spam • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act • Content filtering • EU Data Protection Directive • Web application security • Vulnerability management Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis. 10
  11. 11. Major Drivers (continued)Consolidation of security technologies enhances customer value and return-on-investment:• Cost effective, deeper discounting• Ease of management• “One-stop-shop”• Products are more effective when integrated Firewall/IPsec VPN SSL VPN IPS URL filtering UTM Gateway AV Anti-spyware App control Anti-spam Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis. 11
  12. 12. Technology Segmentation Enterprise Firewall Market vs UTM Market Percent Sales Breakdown Global, 2010 • UTM is a rapidly growing market and now represents the majority of firewall product sales • Enterprise firewall market is growing at a slower pace • The introduction of next generation firewall sales has improved the growth of the enterprise firewall market 12
  13. 13. Major Challenges• Cautious customer spending is due to economic worries that delay purchases• UTM products can be a single point of failure, generating customer fear. These multi-function devices can also slow network traffic, which deters customers with demanding network requirements.• Customers often underestimate threats or overestimate their security architecture, and require additional education Source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and Frost & Sullivan analysis. 13
  14. 14. Realizing the Full Benefits of Next Generation FirewallCapabilitiesIncreased security that is long overdue:• Ability to inspect network traffic content• Block dangerous applications, including Web applications• Protect against port hopping and tunneling• Increasing complexity of attacks in recent years 14
  15. 15. Realizing the Full Benefits of Next Generation FirewallCapabilities (continued)Leverage Web 2.0 for cutting-edge business strategies:• Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter• Must block features such as games, instant messaging, and file sharing• Provide access to the proper users 15
  16. 16. Realizing the Full Benefits of Next Generation FirewallCapabilities (continued)Increase productivity and reduce network latency• Increased work productivity• Block resource-intensive applications• Opportunity-based value Increased productivity and Regulatory Security profitability compliance (Fear) breach (Fear) (Opportunity) 16
  17. 17. What Next Generation Means for the Firewall Market• Solves long-known problems and limitations with traditional firewalls• Adopted by firewall, UTM, and IPS vendors• Next generation firewall offers tremendous value in terms of improved security and enables new business strategies• Next generation firewall is reviving a highly saturated market that is very competitive• Emerging competitors can displace traditional vendors that lack in features 17
  18. 18. What Next Generation Means for the Firewall Market(continued)Challenges• Customers must be able to easily adapt to this new functionality• Identity-based controls prompts human resources considerations• Product definition is still evolving and open. The many competing product methodologies can be confusing for customers.• The convergence trend benefits the market, but also adds complexity to the evolutionary process• Content inspection limits the scalability of any firewall product, which concerns large enterprises and service providers 18
  19. 19. Key CompetitorsSample of top competitors. Not a comprehensive list. 19

  21. 21. Conclusion/Key Take-AwaysNext generation firewall:• Is an important step in the evolution of firewall technology• Is already being sold by every major firewall and UTM vendor• Should perform stateful packet filtering, VPN, application aware control, identity-based control, and content inspection (IPS)• Is offered as multi-function or stand-alone firewall products• These products will be increasingly competitive as hardware improvements enable UTM traction in larger enterprise networks 21
