Re: modest growth
So many companies are reactive when its comes to troubleshooting problems. Virtual CPE will hopefully help them become proactive and save customers money.

However, this will require companies to ensure that the devices become easier to install, maintain and secure.

I would be interested to hear the feedback from the TM Forum Live 2016 in Nice, France, in May 2016.

modest growth
Maybe the 'no ceiling' talk is correct, but I'm seeing a modest 2% annual growth in marketshare for virtual security. (Flipping the 54/45 split.) Which I like because it's steady and believable.

security services
I think that the customer premise equipment (CPE) teaming up with SDN and NFV to offer more service which mean more money increased revenue for businesses etc.

Re: No ceiling
Totally agree: There'll be no end to the need for continuous and continual improvement in security. It's one reason I believe we'll see more enterprises and public organizations adopting security as a service; they simply cannot keep up internally. When you consider that every CTO's top issue is hiring and retaining staff, coupled with budgets and addressing the ongoing slew of attacks and technological changes, it's hard to imagine anyone outside of DoD, BofA or other huge, similarly equipped organizations even attempting to do security internally.

No ceiling
I completely agree, I can't imagine any kind of growth ceiling in security management. Especially as I can't imagine any kind of ceiling in technological advances. As these advances become more and more complex, the need to ensure they are secure will also become more complex. Take for instance, the recent voting catastrophe in Arizona. It is coming out that it is very likely the voter database was hacked, since they only use an SQL system. Had the legislators seen fit to have the voter database slightly more secure, they wouldn't have nearly as many problems as they currently do. You hear constantly about various stores having their credit card files hacked. I feel like I get a new debit card every few months. I see this as an area in our world where there will always be room for improvement, when there will likely always be bigger and better hackers and viruses.

Re: Growth ceiling?
I can't imagine any growth ceiling. 

What's particularly important about using virtualized security capability is that it can be distributed, either with an application, or to the customer premises, in addition to being cloud-based.

As more access to business services is done via mobile devices, it's important that the security start there, via an agent or other bit of software embedded into the app itself. At least that's what I've heard some security folks say. 

I definitely think managed security services, which also draw on network-based analytics to identify and address the threat source, is going to be a big thing going forward.

Growth ceiling?
Is there any upper limit for managed security growth? This seems like one of those functions where it really pays to pay the experts to manage it for you. Any reason to think that will change even after the 5-year projection period?
