Increasing Security Threats in the Environment drive the Need for Enterprise Firewall Systems
The need for accessing real-time data from multiple sources anytime, anywhere, and from various number of devices is increasing. Hence, in order to keep the pace, enterprise data centers have grown exponentially over the last few years with the increasing demand for network connectivity. As a result, the importance for compliance, data security and prevention from other security threats has been increasing to provide high-performance to the users, ensuring secure data. The growth of the internet and the shift of organizations from mainframe computers demanded a better solution than the traditional ways of filtering to avoid malicious traffic. There are various factors, such as internet-virus, sophisticated phishing raids, application-specific attacks, and many others, that destroy data and lead to loss in revenue for companies, and their reputation.
A properly configured firewall helps in providing an important line of defence against malicious internet invaders. Inbound and outbound network traffic can be filtered using firewalls. They also help in hosting applications by keeping track of all the authorized and unauthorized attempts to access the network. The other benefits, which are provided, based on their design and configuration, and capability of filtering out spam spyware, is increasing the demand for the enterprise firewall.
Cloud Services for Enterprise Firewall are expected to have High Growth Rate
Cloud computing is increasing day by day, owing to the cooperative work environment, data distribution and efficient data storing that cloud computing provides is unmatched by any other in computing and data storage. Consequently, numerous companies are heading towards cloud computing, placing their data and communications in the cloud. Security issues are the major factor hampering the growth of cloud. According to NASDAQ, the revenues for cloud services grew by 60 percent in 2015.

The increased adoption of cloud-based software has provided a number of benefits for companies from various industries, including the ability to use software from any device, either through a native app or through a browser. It is estimated that more than USD 70 billion in SaaS revenue will be generated in 2015, increasing to USD 130 billion in 2020, projecting a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.18% during this forecast period. The overall spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms is estimated to register a 26% CAGR, from 2015 through 2018, compared with 5% growth for the complete enterprise IT. By 2016, there will be an 11% shift of IT budget away from traditional on premise IT delivery, toward various versions of cloud computing as a new delivery model. By 2020, more than 65% of enterprises will have at least half of their infrastructure on cloud-based platforms.
