Benchmark security revenue continues to increase, driven primarily by rising demand and acquisitions in 2H19

Key 2H19 benchmark takeaways

Total benchmarked revenue

Double-digit growth among covered vendors was due to steady industry acquisitions and strong performance from many of the vendors, including IBM (NYSE: IBM), F5 Networks (Nasdaq: FFIV), CyberArk (Nasdaq: CYBR), Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT) and Splunk (Nasdaq: SPLK). TBR believes security demand continues to rapidly accelerate as companies execute digital transformation projects and cyber threats continue to increase. The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in an increase in cyberattacks aimed at multiple verticals such as healthcare and financial services, as institutions are forced to operate online in a greater capacity than prior to the outbreak.

Application security and mobile security segments

Higher demand for email- and web-related security as well as application vulnerability scanning led to an increase in application security segment revenue. The mobile security segment is seeing high revenue growth as the number of mobile devices continues to rise and the need to provide endpoint detection to all mobile and IoT connected devices increases.
