Security landscape is evolving fast, so fast detection and mitigation is important for customers. Many enterprises are looking to firewall vendors to provide cloud-based malware detection instances to aid them in their advanced threat detection efforts, as a cost-effective alternative to stand-alone sandboxing appliances.
SSL Decryption is one of the key topics, since TLS 1.2 to the TLS 1.3 standard will undoubtedly force changes in how enterprise firewall vendors process the traffic.
Policy Orchestration and Automation Become Critical on SDN deployments, some vendors haven’t provide much attention om this topic. Firewall Services Within IaaS Environments Become an Area of Differentiation.

Cisco is climbing fast, Fortinet faster, PaloAlto still leading and filling their gaps in portfolio and Check Point released finally the R80 for gateways. I predict 4 Leaders next year, it will be a nice race to watch!
Check Point Software Technologies and Palo Alto Networks still Leaders, since Cisco acquired Sourcefire and have launch FirePOWER we will see changes in Leadership i guess. SDN is another hot topic that will bring challenges for customers and vendors also.
