IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2018 Vendor Assessment

By: Kevin LonerganResearch Manager, Security and Infrastructure, David Senf

Abstract

This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of security services in Canada through the IDC MarketScape model. Using the IDC MarketScape model, 17 security service providers with operations and customers in Canada were compared. This process included interviewing all 17 providers and one or more customers from each provider (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, "Strong revenue growth in security services is increasing competition among Canadian players as value-added resellers and systems integrators double down on security as their traditional markets slow. Still, digital transformation, cloud, and mobility are expanding organizations' attack surfaces to an evolving threat landscape, creating ample opportunities and greenfield growth for all."
