Threats give security boost

Tuesday, 13 April 2004, 3:19 AM EST

The continuing threat of worms, viruses and hacking has helped to drive up revenue for security vendors and resellers, with the purchase of firewalls and VPNs a priority for customers, analyst Datamonitor has said.

Revenues for specialist security vendors in the last three months of 2003 were 14 per cent higher than in 2002.

In 2003, vendors generated revenue of $5.33bn, compared with $4.67bn in 2002. Fourth-quarter 2003 revenue was 22 per cent up on Q4 2002. The industry average rise was six per cent.
