Security is one of the key strategic tasks managed by IT departments in Western Europe. Defending against IT threats, protecting IT assets, monitoring and managing compliance status, protecting information against leakage, and enabling business partnerships and ubiquity for employees are some of the tasks that IT security executives must fulfill. In 2012 we are breaking out the SCTM market into its separate subfunctional markets (endpoint, messaging, Web, and networks), and will produce vendor market share research for Western Europe. IDC's European Security Software Market Analysis and Strategies service closely follows security market spending, strategies, and trends for security software in Western Europe.
