The US market for information security will grow 19 percent annually through 2008 driven in part by efforts to integrate security on enterprise-wide bases. High-end activities such as consulting/risk assessment and outsourcing will lead gains followed by encryption hardware, biometric access controls, spam filters, and VPN hardware/software.
