Future Market Insights
The demand for advanced security equipment to scan data streams for malicious content presents significant challenges to network security vendors. Security equipment, overwhelmed by the data rates of modern age networks, is more likely to miss attacks, leading to increased risks of security breaches. Deep packet inspection and processing is a type of data processing technique that looks in detail at the contents of the data being sent, and re-routes it accordingly.
Typical applications of deep packet inspection (DPI) include validate the proper and error free operation of network protocols, identification of anomalies such as network fraud, viruses, spam, security threats, routing and service level agreements, and network data mining.
In recent years, the global deep packet inspection and processing market has witnessed a tremendous growth rate, mainly due to the increasing demand for detection of malicious software and improved internet security standards, better management of the growing data traffic.
Deep packet inspection and processing enables developers to delve deeper into the network packets and understand the network flows better. DPI brings to IT managers the ability to enhance security and prevent malicious access to their data centers. Additionally, it allows cost-effective load balancing, network monitoring or any other appliances based on network flow recognition.
Major factors responsible for fuelling the demand for deep packet inspection and processing techniques are - evolution of cyber-attacks, growing demand for network performance management & optimization solutions to efficiently manage present day complex networking environments and growing need to meet compliance requirements.
Additionally, factors such as growth of cloud computing, big data, IoT (Internet of Things) and advances in communication technologies will boost the deep packet inspection and processing market growth during the forecast period. Enterprises are allocating significant share of their budgets for DPI and an appreciable portion of these investments are expected to flow into the deep packet inspection and processing market.
However, the growth of deep packet inspection and processing market is expected to be hampered by factors such as lack of awareness regarding the risks associated with cyber-attacks and requirements of security solutions among various enterprises, and cost constraints of enterprises.
Limitations notwithstanding, deep packet inspection and processing has made significant inroads in certain fields as their advantages have solidified.
