The updated Network IPS MQ was published today, for our clients.
The IPS market is driven mostly by the adjacent firewall market. Firewall vendors have in the past not been able to deliver IPS within the firewall that is both integrated and competitive with stand-alone IPS. This edition of the IPS MQ highlights that as the IPS market has expanded into a due diligence market, the pace of innovation of firewalls will determine IPS’ future.
Firewall vendors need next generation firewall features of which quality IPS is a mandatory, and IPS vendors need to decide whether they move into the anchor point of the enterprise firewall market and take on the incumbents. The additional theme is success in acquisition – both in making them and in being acquired.
A great companion document is “Magic Quadrants and MarketScopes: How Gartner Evaluates Vendors Within a Market“.
