Pivot3,a storage provider in the physical security market, took the 2009 top market share position in the global market for IP SANs used for video surveillance, according to a new market research report by IMS Research. Pivot3 announced plans to double the size of its sales force in 2010 as it scales up to meet the growing demand for its Serverless Computing product line.
The market research report entitled "The World Market for Enterprise and IP Storage Used for Video Surveillance – 2010," from IMS tracks trends in the physical security storage market, which is a key element of systems used to capture, display and analyze video streams. Overall demand for external storage solutions soared as the number of surveillance cameras in use continued to increase, end users continued to demand high-resolution video and new regulations were introduced that require longer video retention periods.
"The storage market for physical security environments is a robust billion-dollar market that grew in revenue and capacity during an economic downturn," said Alastair Hayfield, Research Manager of the Video Surveillance and VCA Group, IMS Research. "Furthermore, the market for IP SANs used for video surveillance is forecast to be the fastest growing segment over the next five years, with year over year revenue growth in excess of 60 percent."
With 300 percent growth in 2009, Pivot3 boosted the strength of its sales team with the appointments of five security industry veterans, and has plans to double its sales team in 2010.
