DUBLIN, Ireland --(Business Wire)-- July 6, 2005 -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Wireless LAN Security-- An Industry Outlook to their offering

The wireless LAN market is expanding year after year along with the rapid spread of broadband infrastructure. Recent advances in technology have made commercial deployments of wireless networks possible, opening up a potentially huge business opportunity. The WLAN market is set to grow at an annual rate of 30% per year to nearly $5 billion by 2006. WLAN equipment sales have jumped 60% from this time last year to the present. WLANs for the home and small offices are projected to grow 103% and WLAN sales to the enterprise will grow at 32%.

Although relatively new, the wireless local area network (WLAN) security market has been experiencing tremendous growth as wireless technology becomes more widespread. Enterprises are shifting to WLAN technology as they realize its advantages of huge productivity gains through mobility and instant access to information and standards that ensure interoperability of WLAN equipment. This is expected to drive strong growth in the WLAN security market. "Since WLAN technology is used to transmit sensitive data and the possibility of that data going astray exists, the need for a solution to secure it is expected to continue," remarks the analyst of this research.

While products based upon WLAN security standards are expected to secure a majority of the deployments, they may not be suitable for certain applications or industries that require additional measures. With customers increasingly looking for solutions that extend beyond simply security, the potential for participants that can develop products with more robust feature sets is considerable.

Revenues for the total worldwide wireless LAN security market are expected to continue to grow from US$41.1m (EUR 35.7m) in 2002 to US$278.7m by 2009. This strong increase can be attributed to such factors as continued enterprise WLAN deployments, securing past WLAN deployments, and low price competition. Over the period from 2002 to 2009, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for revenues is expected to be a strong 31.5 per cent.

Many WLANs are being deployed in existing networks that have pre-installed security solutions from incumbent network solutions providers. This poses a considerable competitive threat to the new WLAN security solutions providers. Existing solutions providers have a significant advantage in terms of established relationships with clients; potentially lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and more than adequate security solutions. Forming partnerships with these providers may be the best strategy to gain entry into enterprise deployments. New strategic relationships between vendors are also increasing in the attempt to provide comprehensive packages.
