Cybersecurity is an approach to protect computers, networks, programs, and data from advanced threats and vulnerabilities, cyber warfare, cyber terrorism, and cyber espionage. It involves a set of security technologies and solutions, tools, policies, security concepts, guidelines, risk management approaches, and professional and managed services, to protect networks, computers, programs, and data from cyberattacks, damages, or unauthorized access. The major areas covered in cybersecurity are endpoint security, network security, application security, cloud security, wireless security, and others (database security and web security). The constantly evolving nature of security threats is one of the biggest challenges in the cybersecurity market. With proper cybersecurity solutions, an organization can prevent security breaches and help cut down business cost, thereby enhancing its information security infrastructure. The public and private organizations hold a large amount of sensitive data that is prone to cyber threats and needs to be secured. Further, the sophistication level in cyber-attacks is increasing and creating the demand for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions. The security vendors are developing advanced intelligence-based cybersecurity solutions to provide a proactive, holistic security to critical business applications.

COMPETITIVE LEADERSHIP MAPPING TERMINOLOGY

The vendors are placed into four categories based on their performance in each criterion: “visionary leaders,” “innovators,” “emerging companies,” and “dynamic differentiators.” The top 25 vendors which have been evaluated include IBM, HPE, McAfee, Trend Micro, Symantec, Check Point Software Technologies, Cisco Systems, Palo Alto Networks, Juniper Networks, Fortinet, FireEye, Sophos, Rapid7, RSA Security, LogRhythm, Optiv Security, Webroot, CyberArk Software, Qualys, F-Secure, Trustwave Holdings, Proofpoint, Splunk, Kaspersky, and Imperva. The vendor evaluations are based on 2 broad categories: product portfolio and business strategies. Each category carries various criteria, based on which the vendors have been evaluated. The evaluation criteria considered under product portfolio include breadth of offering, feature/functionality, delivery, and support. The evaluation criteria considered under business strategies include reach (geographic presence), industry coverage, channel, viability, and inorganic growth.

VISIONARY LEADERS

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 mobile cybersecurity solutions. They also have strong business strategies. IBM, HPE, McAfee, Trend Micro, and Symantec are the vendors who fall into the visionary leader category.

INNOVATORS

Innovators in the MicroQuadrant are vendors who have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They have very focused product portfolios. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business. Check Point Software Technologies, Sophos, Fortinet, FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, RSA Security, Rapid7, LogRhythm, and Optiv Security are the vendors who fall into the innovators category.

DYNAMIC Differentiators

They are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they are low in the product portfolio. They generally focus on a specific type of technology related to the product. Qualys, Splunk, CyberArk Software, Trustwave Holdings, and Kaspersky are the vendors who fall into this category.

EMERGING COMPANIES

They are vendors with niche product offerings, who 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 gaining significant market traction. Proofpoint, Imperva, Webroot, and F-Secure are the vendors who fall into this category.
