Mobile security market to hit $1.6bn in 2012

March 05, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Visiongain's latest report indicates that the global mobile market will reach a value of $1.6bn in 2012, as companies and organisations across a number of sectors seek to secure their smart devices against the growing dangers of mobile malware.

The author of The Mobile Security (mSecurity) Market 2012-2017 report commented that 'Mobile devices are becoming as important as the personal computer, as users store more and more information about their personal and business lives on their phones. This has started to attract the attention of criminal elements from cyberspace, and they are adapting existing malware to the new mobile platform. The mobile security market is therefore forecast by visiongain to record strong and continuous growth over the next decade, as the mobile landscape comes under attack.

The report contains 111 tables, charts and figures that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the mobile security market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2017 in terms of value (US$) for the global mobile security market, as well as for six submarkets (Mobile Data Security; Mobile Device Security; Mobile Identity Management; Mobile Virtual Private Networks; Mobile Device Management; Mobile Security as a Service) of the mobile security market. In addition, nine national mobile security markets are forecast and analysed over the period 2012-2017. The report provides profiles of 30 leading companies operating within the market, and includes seven interviews with principal mobile security companies.

The MobileSecurity (mSecurity) Market 2012-2017 report will be of value to current and future potential investors into the mobile security industry, as well as companies and research centres who wish to broaden their knowledge of the mobile security market.-
