Headquartered in CA, Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) is a global provider of network security appliances and a revenue leader in unified threat management (UTM). The company has a market cap of $4.47 billion.

The networking and security industries are evolving rapidly. Here are Fortinet's views on the most important developments and technologies to look out for in 2015.

1.Security breaches are harder to stop
Security breaches and data leakage will continue to trouble companies of all sizes. The threat timeline over the last 10-15 years has shown that a new threat tends to be quickly answered by a new defence system. The threat then evolves, and a new defence system is needed. This has led to a myriad of disparate security appliances, software agents and management systems that in many cases are unable to talk to one other. When the bad guys tweak the Threat Life Cycle, for example via the creation of Advanced Persistent Threats or APTs, it becomes very difficult to stay ahead of the curve. Next-generation security architectures will integrate discrete security systems into a platform, which can correlate threat life elements and break the infection chain in different places.

2.Cloud technologies are finally taking root
All forms of cloud are starting to make inroads as a viable part of the enterprise infrastructure. Software as a Service (SaaS) has reached a tipping point as most organizations trust a provider's security capabilities. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is still focused on web applications for elasticity and redundancy. Cloud bursting, hybrid clouds and personal clouds will mean more sharing of distributed services, management and security.
