This IDC study reviews the top IT security products vendors in Canada. Factory revenue is collected from IDC's Canadian Security Software Tracker and Security Appliance Tracker. The top 5 vendors are highlighted and competitive details explored across seven security submarkets: endpoint, identity and access management (IAM), messaging, network, security and vulnerability management (SVM), web, and "other" security. The top vendors in the Canadian security products market are Symantec, Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, and Intel-McAfee. It updates the previous study, Canadian Security Products Market Shares, 2015: Hardware Vendors Gain Share in a Strong Market (IDC #CA40660216, December 2016).
"In 2016, hardware vendors set their sights on new opportunities in software and cloud," says Kevin Lonergan, senior analyst, Infrastructure Solutions. "The visibility and analytics used on the network have applications across multiple product markets, and IDC expects to see competition intensify as they battle the incumbents for share."
