META Group, Inc. announced the availability of its newest METAspectrum evaluation for the antivirus market. The antivirus market comprises software and services for detecting, filtering, and removing viruses and malware (malicious scripts, backdoors, trojans and snooping/spyware files) and for restoring damaged files.

"Viruses are the most prevalent security threats to enterprise integrity," says Peter Firstbrook, senior research analyst with META Group's Security & Risk Strategies service. "We expect the market for antivirus products to grow 10 to 20 percent per year. Vendors with solid solutions in the high-growth areas – storage-area network (SAN), Linux, e-mail and Web gateways – will experience success as they broaden their penetration."
