VPN, firewall sales expected to boom

Worldwide revenue from sales of VPN and firewall hardware and software will grow by 31% from $668 million in the 3rd quarter of 2002 to $874 million in the 3rd quarter of 2003, according to research by Infonetics Research.

Worldwide annual revenue in this market will reach $4.9 billion in 2005, Infonetics said.

A key market driver is the ready availability of low-cost Internet bandwidth which enables users to move to a model of distributed Internet connectivity rather than centralized connectivity. This drives up demand for VPN and firewall sales, Infonetics said.
