Network security threats in the present day come from various directions. Today's network security challenges have ushered in new types of technologies, as well as novel ways of implementing older ones. In 2000, Frost & Sullivan accurately predicted a continued strengthening of the managed security services providers market (MSSP) even through its consolidation. With the MSSP market's success, telecom carriers are repositioning themselves as security monitoring and management partners for their clients, thus changing the competitive landscape and dynamics of the market. As security threats continue to evolve, MSSPs are expanding their portfolios to offer services based on multiple technologies. Whereas early market entrants focused on offering only firewall, VPN, IDS, and assessment services, today's most potent competitors have expanded into application security, authentication, as well as content and spam filtering services.
A host of security technology companies are re-engineering themselves in new and existing security solutions to provide deeper levels of protection. Because so many attacks can be launched through port 80, customers are increasingly turning to application layer security through deep packet inspection, host-based security platforms, and anomaly detection.
