In general, security market has a wide range of products and services. It consists of products (FW,IDS/IPS,VPN,UTM,SOC,4A,etc.) and services, e.g. Risk Assessment, Managed Security Services(including monitoring,etc.) , consulting services for Cobit/ITIL/ISO/IATF, solutions, system hardening, penetration testing, management , training etc.
We have a hard time selling our services. Because Chinese customers have a low recognition of the services unlike the westerners do. In their mind, services should be free if I have bought your product and you should do the rest of that. On the other hand, services aren’t unified and standardized. Customers won’t pay much money for it . That’s the problem.
Howerver security services are a promising market. No one is willing to lose this market, you’d better keep an eye on this always. Some day in the near future some kinds of services will come up. Security services will end up in the form of products in China market. Actually lots of company have done this in advance.
The world is changing quickly. It’s pleasure to see that China is now regarded as a major influence force of the whole world. That’s also true at the IT industry.

From insiders, the largest mobile carrier – China Mobile has got the first 3G license at China. Surely, it’s TD-SCDMA. It’s said that this betrays the determination of China government to respect the self intellectual property and encourage China enterprises to develop their own technologies.
TD-SCDMA is one of the three major 3G international standards, submitted by China enterprises.
It’s reported that China Telecom will get CDMA2000 and China Unicom will get WCDMA soon.
CNCERT released the first half year security report of 2008. You can download this report (pdf) at there official website.
An interesting point from the report is the geographic distribution of controller computers of botnets at China. According to the investigation of CNCERT, roughly 98230 computers abroad were discovered to be controlling the botnet at China, which means a 26.4% growth against 2007. The IP addresses of those controllers are from: Read more…

The below charts are worldwide distribution of malcode and DDoS attacks by Arbor networks.
The first one is a set of major malcode distribution points for May, 2008, by country, while the second one is who are hosting the DDoS attack botnets (these are the controlling servers, NOT the attacking bots). This is the number of attacks commanded by hour by server country.
It seems that too much malcode and DDoS attackes are originated from China. If this data is true, it betrays that China ISPs and government should do more to clean the network. Meanwhile, this means a great security market potential at China, even though the security market volume is relatively very small at this moment (less than 2B$ per year)
After years of rumors, the final picture of China telco re-org got announced today. It’s somewhat the same as the gossip inside the circle.
China Netcom(CNC) will be merged into China Unicom to be the new China Unicom. Meanwhile, The “C” and “G” networks of China Unicom will be splitted, while the “C” part will be merged into China Telecom. China Railcom (CRC) will be merged into China Mobile(CMCC).
The executives of the new companies are also mentioned:
- CMCC – Wang Jianzhou, Zhang Chunjiang(from CNC);
- CT – Wang Xiaochu, Shangbin(from CUC);
- CUC – Chang Xiaobing, Zuo Xunsheng(from CNC);
This re-grouping is interlocked with the 3G licenses. It’s said that the new CMCC will get TD-SCDMA, while new CUC will get WCDMA, and CT will get CDMA2000.
It’s interesting to watch back to what I summarized the evolvement of China telecommunication industry in the past 10 years.
This morning the great news is announced – Lenovo has a great fiscal year. Some financial detailed could be found at the official financial report. The below news report by Melinda Peer is also very worthy of your reading.
Slower consumer spending dampened sales of personal computers in the U.S., but Lenovo barely felt it thanks to higher shipments to emerging markets.
China’s largest personal computer maker said Thursday that fourth-quarter demand grew fastest in its Europe, Middle East and Africa region, where shipments jumped 30.0% in the fourth quarter. The segment offset weak demand in the U.S. where consumers have cut back on spending, which spells trouble for U.S. tech companies that haven’t fostered strong overseas growth.
Lenovo, which bought the personal computer division of IBM (nyse: IBM – news – people ) in 2005, reported sales of $1.3 billion in its core Chinese market, an increase of 18.0% from 2007′s fourth quarter. The country’s sales accounted for 34.0% of Lenovo’s fourth-quarter sales. Read more…
