Next-generation Firewall Market Predict $11.78 Billion By 2032, CAGR: 10.8%

Next-generation Firewall Market Size Worth $11.78 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 10.8%

The global next-generation firewall market size is expected to reach USD 11.78 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Next-generation Firewall Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Vertical (Manufacturing, Healthcare, BFSI); By Deployment Mode; By Organization Size; By Offering; By Application;  By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024- 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Next-generation firewalls are part of the third generation of firewall technology, designed to protect organizations from advanced security threats at the application level. They combine traditional firewall capabilities with other technologies to enable better decision-making about internet access. Factors such as the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and increasing internal and external threats are driving the demand for next-generation firewall solutions and services.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a beneficial effect on the next-generation firewall market. Lockdown measures led to increased internet access and the use of IoT devices, which in turn resulted in a higher number of cyber-attacks. With the majority of organizations mandating work from home during the pandemic, there was a further increase in demand for robust security solutions. Consequently, enterprises adopted next-generation firewall solutions to enhance security for their valuable data and information, protecting them from cyber threats and unauthorized data theft.

As the use of cloud-based infrastructures becomes more prevalent across industries, organizations are prioritizing the security of their cloud operations. This surge in cloud adoption has created a need for Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) to bolster security. Cloud services, such as Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), require robust security measures to safeguard sensitive data and applications. NGFWs play a vital role in cloud security strategies as they can inspect application usage, encrypted traffic, and detect sophisticated threats. Major cloud providers such as AWS and Microsoft Azure advocate for the integration of NGFWs to enhance protection. The shared responsibility model in cloud security emphasizes the importance of customers implementing NGFWs to improve their security posture. As the demand for secure and compliant cloud environments grows with the increasing adoption of cloud for its scalability and efficiency, the need for NGFWs intensifies.
