Critical Infrastructure Protection Solutions is fundamentally the readiness for safeguarding a country’s critical infrastructure. Critical infrastructure refers to the various processes, services, technologies, network systems, assets, and amenities that are crucial to the safety, security, health, or economic well-being of a state. Governments and international organizations and even some of the private organizations are inclined toward providing protection to these key assets. Proper preparedness and response to the vulnerabilities in these infrastructures helps protect a nation’s critical infrastructure. If the necessary precautionary procedures are neglected by the security agencies/safety organizations, thereby debilitating the critical infrastructure, the nation may have to bear serious consequences.
Competitive landscape analyzes the growth strategies adopted by the various key players in the Critical Infrastructure Protection Solutions. BAE Systems (Farnborough, UK), General Dynamics (Virginia, US), Honeywell (New Jersey, US), Lockheed Martin (Maryland, US), Northrop Grumman (Virginia, US), Raytheon (Massachusetts, US), Airbus (Leiden, Netherlands), Hexagon AB (Stockholm, Sweden), Johnson Controls (Cork, Republic of Ireland), Thales Group (La Defense, France), Teltronic (Zaragoza, Spain), and OptaSense (Farnborough, UK) are recognized as some of the top players in the CIP market. This chapter also includes the MicroQuadrant, which provides information about the 25 major players who offer CIP systems, solutions, and services. The vendor evaluations are based on 2 broad categories: Strength of Product Portfolio and Business Strategy Excellence. Each category carries various criteria based on which the vendors have been evaluated. The evaluation criteria considered under strength of product portfolio include breadth and depth of product offering, product feature and functionality, product differentiation and impact on customer value, and product branding. The evaluation criteria considered under business strategy excellence include effectiveness of organic growth strategy, breadth of applications served, geographic footprint, and merger and acquisition strategy. The products offered by these top players are loaded with many features and capabilities. Additionally, these players have adopted various business strategies to maintain a leading position in the CIP market.
Vendors who fall in this category generally receive high scores for most of the evaluation criteria. They have strong and established product portfolios and a very strong market presence. They provide mature and reputable CIP systems, solutions, and services. They also have strong business strategies. Honeywell, Thales Group, BAE Systems, Raytheon, Johnson Controls, and Gallagher are the vendors who fall into the visionary leaders category in the MicroQuadrant.
Innovators in the MicroQuadrant are the vendors who have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They have a very focused product portfolio. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business. Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, CNL Software, Terma A/S, OptaSense, and Textron Systems are the vendors who fall into the innovators category.
They are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they are low in product portfolio. They generally focus on a specific type of technology related to the product. Bosch Security Systems, Airbus, General Dynamics, Genetec, Huawei, and Hexagon AB are the vendors who fall into this category.
They are vendors with niche product offerings and are starting to gain their position in the market. They do not have very strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some more time before getting significant traction. Motorola Solutions, Barco, Teltronic, Restrata, Avigilon, APC by Schneider Electric, Mistral Solutions, DEA Security, and Advent Systems are the vendors who fall into this category.
