Gartner defines the enterprise wired and wireless LAN infrastructure market as that of vendors supplying wired and wireless networking hardware, and the related network software. Products in this market enable devices and end users to connect to the enterprise wired LAN or Wi-Fi network in support of the required organizational mission. Supported network devices are inclusive of end-user-operated devices such as laptops, smartphones and networked office equipment; and non-user-operated devices such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The network intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) appliance market is composed of stand-alone physical and virtual appliances that inspect defined network traffic either on-premises or in the cloud. They are often located in the network to inspect traffic that has passed through perimeter security devices, such as firewalls, secure Web gateways and secure email gateways. IDPS devices are deployed in-line and perform full-stream reassembly of network traffic. They provide detection via several methods — for example, signatures, protocol anomaly detection, behavioral monitoring or heuristics, advanced threat defense (ATD) integration, and threat intelligence (TI). When deployed in-line, IDPSs can also use various techniques to detect and block attacks that are identified with high confidence; this is one of the primary benefits of this technology. Next-generation IDPSs have evolved in response to advanced targeted threats that can evade first-generation IDPSs.
Network firewalls secure traffic bidirectionally across networks. Although these firewalls are primarily deployed as hardware appliances, clients are increasingly deploying virtual appliance firewalls, cloud-native firewalls from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers, and firewall as a service (FWaaS) offerings hosted directly by vendors. Capabilities of network firewalls include: Application awareness and control Intrusion detection and prevention Advanced malware detection Logging and reporting
The Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) market consists of tools that leverage a combination of data sources to provide a holistic view of how networks (including corporate on-premises, cloud, multicloud, hybrid and other networks) are performing. Data sources include: Network-device-generated traffic data Raw network packets Network-device-generated health metrics and events NPM tools provide diagnostic workflows and forensic data to identify the root causes of performance degradations — increasingly through the adoption of advanced technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning algorithms (ML). Finally, based on network-derived performance data, NPM tools provide insight into the quality of the end-user experience.
