NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Plan Beyond the Scan

Vulnerability management (VM) is a perimeter based cyber defense that scans network infrastructures and identifies and prioritizes critical security issues. IP scanning is a foundational network security approach; however, the leading VM vendors are adding endpoint visibility, network mapping, web application scanning, and continuous monitoring to existing services. This global and regional market analysis includes forecasts for 2015-2019. Technology and pricing trends are detailed and key drivers and restraints identified. The key competitors are profiled and main distribution channels and market verticals have been forecasted. The combined information reveals the market's key growth opportunities.

Key Findings
- Frost & Sullivan estimates vulnerability management (VM) vendors sold $ million of VM appliances and related services in the base year of the study, 2014, representing an improvement of % more than 2013.
- For 2015, much is expected to be the same. Anticipated revenues in VM are $ million or a % improvement.
- In the years 2014–2019, the SaaS form factor will have the largest product group in terms of revenue. In 2019, SaaS VM is projected to have revenues of $ million. However, software will have the slowest moving CAGR at % during the same forecast period.
- Frost & Sullivan expects SaaS to be the fastest rising product group in terms of CAGR with %.
- North America is the region that accounts for most VM sales accounting for % of all global VM revenues in 2014. In 2019, Frost & Sullivan expects that share to drop to % of all revenues.
- In 2014, Frost & Sullivan estimates there are VM 80,305 commercial installments. By 2019, Frost & Sullivan estimates there will be .
- In 2014, the average selling price (ASP) for VM products to a company is $ . In 2019, the ASP will be $ .
o The slight fading in VM ASP is the result of cloud services bring down prices and increased competition.
- Both agentless scanning (the traditional approach) and scanning with agents are needed to provide a holistic approach to vulnerability scanning.
- Companies that offer vulnerability management are facing the same obstacles that many other vendors in cyber defense technology are facing:
o To increase the value of software engagements, vendors need to continue to expand the capabilities of their platforms. Possible capabilities to incorporate include:
Endpoint vulnerability assessments
Compliance reporting and auditing
Passive scanning
Role-based access
Endpoint posture assessment
Log management
o Chief Security Officers (CSO) are building multilayered defenses. To do this, security tools must communicate with one another bidirectionally. If a miscreant is discovered on one platform, other cyber defense tools are tuned to block/mitigate/deny/remediate similar signatures.
o Through ticketing systems or integrations with active directories, security tools must bridge the gap between security and IT technologies.
o Like other cyber defense technology services providers, VM vendors must supply tools that match the requirements of heterogeneous networking. VM vendors must provide on-premises scan capabilities as well as Web-based and cloud scanning and reporting capabilities.
