The market for firewall software will grow by 30 per cent in 1997, sustaining similar growth rates until 2001 as companies rush to protect their Internet connections.
These are some conclusions of a new study by research group IDC, which claims the market will hit $286 million this year from $220 million in 1996. Since average price per unit has dropped from $16,000 to $6,000 in the past year, the increase in unit shipments is even more dramatic.
According to IDC, price drops were caused by increased competition and the shift of some vendors to software-only firewalls.
