Security technology vendors must always be at least one step ahead of the bad guys. It’s not surprising, therefore, that IT security is perhaps the IT industry segment with the most rapid pace of innovation as security vendors race to develop products and services to counter the ever-changing range of threats – from phishing and ransomware, to insider threats, to sophisticated drive-by download and distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Major vendors, including Cisco Systems, Fortinet, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks and Sophos, account for a big portion of security tech industry sales.
