A firewall is a network security system that controls the network traffic that is sent and received according to defined rules. An enterprise firewall solution is essential to protect your organization from potential cyber threats. The firewall acts as a middle layer between trusted and untrusted networks and filters network traffic based on predefined firewall policies. Enterprise firewalls are used for device groups within an enterprise. In terms of technology, the enterprise network firewall market is a constantly evolving market with increasing levels of vulnerability and changing communication technologies.
The increase in external and internal threats is a key factor in the growth of the enterprise firewall market. Other key drivers for growth include cloud computing, reduced penetration of small- and medium-sized businesses, and increased mobility. In addition, many features and benefits of Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) systems, such as centralized data management, user identification, Web and deep packet filtering, enhanced IPS solutions and application control, are expected to dominate the enterprise firewall market. Interest in using cost-effective Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is another factor that underpins the growth of the global enterprise firewall market.
However, budget constraints, slower adaptation to new technologies, and high preference for SMEs' Unified Threat Management (UTM) have been identified as potential constraints that could hinder the growth of the global enterprise firewall market. The global enterprise firewall market is categorized by type of firewall, services, deployment method, size of organization, industry vertical and geographical area.
