This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide DDoS prevention products and services market. This study updates the previous forecast published in Worldwide DDoS Prevention Products and Services Forecast, 2016–2020 (IDC #US41659116, August 2016).
"The Mirai botnet confirmed what many experts had warned about for some time that IoT devices could be leveraged to generate extremely large distributed denial-of-service attacks. Sophisticated attacks will continue to hit companies of all sizes in all industries. The combination of the complexity of these attacks with greater visibility by the media is driving continued adoption of DDoS mitigation products and services. Because of this, the worldwide DDoS prevention products and services market is forecast to increasingly achieve growth throughout the five-year forecast period." — Rob Ayoub, research director, Security Products
