This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of security services in Canada through the IDC MarketScape model. Using the IDC MarketScape model, 11 security service providers with operations and customers in Canada were compared. This process included interviewing all 11 providers and one or more customers from each (if made available) on managed and professional security services. Providers were measured in terms of current capabilities and future strategies for delivering services to customers in the Canadian market.
Kevin Lonergan, senior analyst, Infrastructure Solutions, says, "The Canadian security services market is evolving quickly as pure-play providers are acquired, partnerships are formed, and new players try to tap into the strong growth security services has been experiencing. Although competition is ramping up, there are still many opportunities for greenfield growth as Canadian organizations continue to look to third parties for help securing their business."
