    Spending on network security protection will nearly double over the next five years, according to the latest figures from ABI Research. The analyst firm's World Enterprise Network and Data Security Markets report said that spending on unified threat management, virtual private networks, network access control, firewalls and intrusion detection systems will rise from $6bn ( Much of the increase will be down to changes in enterprise IT systems and the access technologies they use.

    ABI Research explained that these changes include the increasing complexity of enterprise networks , the greater use of cloud services and the increased use of smartphones and tablets in the office.
