Wireless intrusion prevention systems are utilized by organizations to locate and block intrusion attacks on the wireless local area network (WLAN). Previously, wireless intrusion prevention systems were primarily utilized for detecting unwanted wireless access points (APs). However, with product evolution and advancements in technology, these systems can now prevent a wide variety of attacks on the WLAN. The security requirements vary from organization to organization and hence the wireless intrusion prevention systems are also different in each organization. Organizations can choose a system based on device management style, types of attacks to be blocked, whether recordings of the attack are required or not among others. Such criterion differentiates the product of the different vendors from each other. End users also need to check the accuracy of attack prevention, in terms of false positives and false negatives. This is because, such statistics of detection rates for false positives and false negatives are generally not provided by the wireless intrusion prevention system vendors. The wireless intrusion prevention systems can be split across different management servers, thus allowing other servers to function normally even when one of the servers is not functioning. Certain wireless intrusion prevention systems are designed to function even when connection is lost to the management server.

The market for wireless intrusion prevention systems is primarily being driven by the growing dependence on wireless technologies. Organizations are now more reliant on WLAN and hence any intrusion on WLAN can severely affect the functioning of the organization. Any unauthorized access to the WLAN can lead to further access to the organization’s data, client devices, systems and even wired networks. Wireless intrusion prevention systems can prevent such intrusions effectively and hence is seeing growing applications globally. This in turn is driving the market for wireless intrusion prevention systems. Additionally, the types of cyber attacks and threats has been becoming more and more advanced, leading to the need for advanced wireless intrusion prevention systems by organizations. Owing to the advancements in cyber attacks, the advanced wireless intrusion prevention systems are being offered by the vendors at a higher price. Also, depending on the type of hardware and software implemented, the price can be higher even. Such factors have again been positively impacting the growth of the wireless intrusion prevention systems market globally. Furthermore, several countries are implementing regulations for organizations to mandatorily have better protection and security for the data. Such regulations have also been boosting the application of wireless intrusion prevention systems, in smaller organizations also, who were previously relying on simpler modes of cyber security. This in turn is further fuelling the market for wireless intrusion prevention systems, across the globe. However, factors such as low awareness of wireless intrusion prevention systems and continual usage of legacy systems, which cannot be integrated with modern wireless intrusion prevention systems, have been restraining the growth of the market to some extent. Considering the rise in number of cyber attacks and growing importance of data privacy of various organizations, the wireless intrusion prevention systems market is expected to witness several growth opportunities, during the forecast period.
