There is a wide range of network security products available in the market now. Despite these products, certain undetected and ingenious cyber-crimes take place by making use of certain evasive binaries. They either make the network security system stop completely or escape from the observance of it. So, a behavioural approach is needed to detect APT (Advanced Persistent Threats) which are based on malware’s activities. The Network Security Sandbox (NSS) is amongst the most effective security breach detection system. It is an isolated computing environment in which a program can be executed without in any way damaging the application that runs the program. The NSS is effective to observe and analyse in an automated manner in the visualized environment where a suspicious program is functioning. Further NSS is capable of going beyond the mere appearance of the binary to fully observe what binary does.
According to Quadrant Knowledge Solutions study “Network Security Sandbox (NSS) Market Outlook – Market Forecast, Trends, and Analysis Through 2020” the NSS market is expected to grow significantly in the next four to five years with a CAGR of 54.0% by 2020.
The Network Security Sandbox (NSS) market is expected to reach $9.24 billion by 2020. While the small and medium businesses (SMBs) will post the highest growth, the large and enterprise business will continue to dominate the market during 2016-2020.
The Continuous Rise of Cyber-crimes Throughout the World
The Data Breach Investigation Report of Verizon in 2015 revealed that there were 79790 secret incidents and out of these, some 2122 cases had confirmed data breaches. These breaches of security took place in different forms such as point of sales intrusion, web app attack, cyber espionage, insider misuse, card skimmers, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, crime-ware, miscellaneous errors and physical thefts. In order to tackle the increasing threats, the network security system has to be involved in constant research and innovative tools must be put in force before the criminal attackers breach data, resulting in loss of money and business.
Increasing Threats from Mobile Apps and Social Networks
Increased adoption of mobile apps and social networks pose a great danger to the network security. Such threats will keep on increasing in future also in proportion to the rise in the usage of social networks and mobile apps as they are interwoven with mobile telephony. This kind of race between the network security and threats will wide open the market for sandboxes.
Increasing Adoption of Cloud Based Software-as-a-services (SaaS)
The cloud services and the cloud-based applications like Platform as a Service (PaaS) have brought in a lot of conveniences and fundamental changes in storage of data, without causing much strain on the computing devices. In fact, it is a great leap on large-scale specialization. The SaaS is a software deployment model provided to the customers through the internet through a hosted service. But, all these conveniences accompany certain challenges in data security and privacy protection and on the safety of data. All these advancements have created a need for NSS, which provides utmost security pro-actively.
Transition from IPv4 to IPv6
The internet that we know of is undergoing a change, as the standard called Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) are becoming obsolete and so the transition of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is inevitable. Any computer on the internet can be identified with the IP address of the computer, as it is only a big number. The IPv4 provides 32-bit numbers capable of generating 4.3 billion IP addresses. As these numbers may be exhausted over a period of time, the transition has to take place to the IPv6 with 128-bit numbers capable of generating over 340 undecillion. But the problem is that one type of IP data cannot travel to the destination with another type of IP data, as these two different protocols cannot synchronize with each other, such as the network, server or mobile phone. While at present the adoption rate for IPv6 is not as per the expectations, the adoption rate to pick up significantly in the next three to four years. The new IPv6 protocol will require robust network security solutions and hence is expected to boost the demand for network security sandbox solutions.
