Why Read This Report

Forrester's market momentum overview assists vendor strategists tracking the evolution of the IT security market and gathering intelligence about company activities. In the second half of 2009, we tracked 224 different activities across four categories: mergers and acquisitions (M&A), partnerships, new products, and go-to-market strategies. Vendor activity rose in almost all areas compared with the first half of 2009. Three key findings stand out from our analysis. First, vendors are going to market with offerings that blend products and managed service solutions, as well as those that blend solutions with consulting. Next, a combination of increasing threats and a deeper role of technology in business is creating a broader market for IT security solutions, not a narrower one. Finally, vendors are moving aggressively to address cloud computing and virtualization security concerns.
