This IDC study presents IDC's taxonomy for the security services market. It provides the definitions of security services across four major segments: consulting, implementation, operations, and education and training. It is the foundation for IDC's forecast and market share documents for security services. The taxonomy is used by IDC analysts to generate IDC market sizing, forecasts, and company models. IDC's security services taxonomy presents a comprehensive and standardized view of the worldwide security services marketplace. It is the premier source for defining and categorizing security services.
"The intention of IDC's security services taxonomy is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of the very dynamic, constantly evolving worldwide security services marketplace." — Christina Richmond, program director, Worldwide Security Services
