Analyst firm Frost & Sullivan finds this security market is primed for growth ahead as companies in the space expand into enterprise markets.

Since its inception, the world unified threat management (UTM) products market has witnessed high growth rates and, despite the harsh economic conditions of 2009, the UTM market grew at a healthy rate.

During 2008, the market witnessed a growth rate of 32.2 percent; however, the growth rate dropped to 20.1 percent in 2009 due to the recession.
