Market Overview

The network security firewall market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period, 2021 - 2026. The growth of the network security firewall market is driven by several factors, such as increased demand for network security & privacy, advancement of digital transformation in the telecommunication industry, real-time streaming analysis, and administrative regulations encouraging demand for network security firewalls

  • Owing to the numerous amount of advantages that comes with the utilization of a firewall in a network, especially the easy installation and the high speed is fuelling the market growth. Additionally, implementing a firewall for a network is also much less costly than to have to secure each computer individually.However, lack of preventive firewall maintenance infrastructure, and poor hardware and system compatibility are few of the major factors hindering the market growth.
  • The increasing need of securing communication paths from unlawful access and information misuse and maintenaning network safety between the external network and the inner network to safeguard the company from fraud and data violations is helping the market to expand and grow.
  • The rapid use of web applications, rapid adoption of cloud technologies, and the increasing demand for security services to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks are also driving the growth of the network security firewall market. In order to protect the data & information from security breaches and cyber-attacks, the implementation of network security firewalls is growing across various end-use enterprises. Consequently, driving the growth of the overall network security firewalls market.
  • Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, at one side there is shutting down major parts of the global economy and on the other side there are those with nefarious ends who are trying to take advantage of chaos and uncertainty and are evolving the scam and phishing techniques which is a big threat to everyone globally.

Due to rise in such activities network security firewall market is likely to grow as firewall is a critical security component for connections that are always on and organization need network firewalls to protect network infrastructure.

Scope of the Report

A firewall is an interface between the inner network and outer network. The firewall stops every unusual activity occurring in between the network. The firewall consists of hardware and software. The main purpose of installation of firewall in the any system is to reduce effect of any unauthorized  access in the system. The firewall protect user at different levels of network such as packet-filtering firewalls, stateful inspection firewalls, circuit-level gateways, application-level gateways, next-gen firewalls and others.
