The application economy has turned just about every enterprise into a software company, a shift that's vaulted the data centers that run all that software into a pivotal role. Increasingly, data centers serve as the nerve center of business operations. Ultimately, business success hinges on their resiliency and security. Which is why it is no surprise that organizations are pouring more money than ever into the technology and practices that protect data center assets.
The growth of data center network security marches on at a pace that outstrips other IT sectors. According to recent figures, the global data center security market value was US $6.15 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately US 14.11 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 14.85% between 2017 and 2022.
