According to results from the latest IDC's Asia/Pacific Quarterly Security Appliance Server Tracker, the security appliance server market in Asia/Pacific reached $164.8 million in customer revenue in the fourth quarter of 2005. The security appliance server market in Asia/Pacific for the full year 2005 amounted to $549 million, representing a year-on-year growth of more than 39 percent.
