SANS - Survey on application security programs

The European market for administration, authorisation and authentication (3A) security software will grow from $742 million in 2000 to $2.4 billion in 2005, an annual increase of 27 per cent.

This trio of software technologies are key tools for enabling online transactions and expanding customer bases in ebusinesses. This makes the sector both the largest and fastest growing segment of the security software market, outpacing both the firewall and antivirus software sectors, according to a new IDC report.

Within the 3A market, Web single sign-on and email scanning software will experience the highest growth rates (61 and 45 per cent, respectively).

The report lists the leading software vendors vying for Europe's business in this sector (and their primary product):

  • IBM-Tivoli (SecureWay)
  • Computer Associates (ACF2 and Top Secret)
  • Ubizen (MultiSecure)
  • RSA (SecurID)
  • Evidian, Groupe Bull (AccessMaster)
  • Baltimore Technologies (MIMEsweeper)
  • HP (VirtualVault)
  • Symantec (Ghost)
  • Internet Security Systems (RealSecure)
  • SurfControl (SuperScout)
  • Utimaco (SafeGuard)
  • Netegrity (SiteMinder)

Market leader IBM-Tivoli focuses on authorisation, while CA is traditionally strong in the mainframe and Unix environments. Belgian-based Ubizen, RSA Security and France's Evidian make up the balance of the top five vendors in the region. ®
