Endpoint Security Adoption Trends, Q2 2011 To Q4 2012

How Your Peers Are Spending For Endpoint Security Through 2012

December 5, 2011


Why Read This Report

Effective protection of user endpoints remains a challenge for enterprises and small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) alike. Trends such as workforce mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) exacerbate the problem. Forrester finds that SMB and enterprise spending on endpoint security technologies in 2012 will largely mirror spending levels in 2011. Enterprises will favor more advanced endpoint security technologies, whereas SMBs will still largely focus on the bread and butter of endpoint security, such as antivirus (AV) software and patch management. Adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based endpoint security technologies proceeds at a measured pace, with enterprises showing as much interest as SMBs in cloud delivery.
