Domain Name System (DNS) Firewall Market size is expected to gain notable proceeds from 2021 to 2027 due to the higher usage of mobile devices and the rising scope of web applications. The increasing concerns over data security across data-sensitive centers have paved the way for the surging requirement for protection against malware. The soaring need for controlling the servers and redirecting the traffic to malicious websites will favor the market prominence.
DNS not only protects internal data from attackers but also offers safety against automatic access to malicious sites.
On the basis of deployment, the DNS firewall industry is classified into cloud, on-premises, and virtual appliances. Out of these, the virtual appliance segment is slated to show robust growth through 2027 on account of the growing obligation to simplify the delivery as well as the operations of applications. Increasing preference, attributed to its compatibility with the Windows operating system (OS), is another positive trend driving the market growth.
In terms of organization size, the demand for domain name system firewall solutions in large enterprises will expand with the increasing usage of the internet and the large volumes of generated data. As the product gives insights on threats and helps to isolate the infected devices for remediation, it marks widespread usage in organizations for automated threat intelligence feed. Moreover, the higher requirement for protecting the networks from malware will contribute to the industry expansion.
Based on end-user, the DNS provider segment is set to observe growth due to the increasing emergence of DNS hosts that are configured by Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Rising concerns over server breakages have triggered the higher need for DNS servers, to offer enhanced security, reliability, and speed. Verisign, Oracle, Akamai, Microsoft Azure, OpenDNS, NS1, Cloudflare, and Infoblox are some of the most commonly available DNS providers in enterprises.
Regionally, the North America DNS firewall market is anticipated to grow with the growing government support and the higher incursion of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in the region. The firewall solutions are largely deployed in the IT, and BFSI sectors. The rising deployment rate and the growing number of enterprises are some factors driving the market growth.
DNS firewall market players include IBM Corporation, EonScope, Cisco Systems, Insight Enterprises, Verigio Communications, F5 Networks, VeriSign, BlueCat, Comodo, Allied Telesis, eSentire, Constellix, ThreatSTOP, Cloudflare, Nominum (Akamai Technologies), EfficientIP, SWITCH, and Infoblox (Vista Equity Partners, Warburg Pincus).
Apart from working on partnership-oriented strategies, such as mergers, and acquisitions, these technical bigwigs are focusing on innovations, R&D activities, and investments to proliferate their presence across the globe whilst multiplying their revenue sales.
For instance, in November 2020, Neustar, Inc., inked a definitive agreement with VeriSign, in order to acquire its recursive Public DNS service. Through the acquisition, 126.96.36.199, the address space for Verisign Public DNS was incorporated into Neustar's recursive UltraDNS Public service.
In another instance, in December 2019, EfficientIP, raised $11 million in a Series B investment funding from Jolt Capital in Paris to drive its international expansion with respect to its DDI solutions.
The COVID-19 pandemic posed a backtracking effect on the global economy given that it brought considerable social and lifestyle changes. However, it proved as a booster for the DNS firewall deployment on account of the rising security challenges prompted by the remote working of millions of employees. The surge in the instances of various diverse DNS attacks has given way for favorable market growth dynamics.
