IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of security services in Canada through the IDC MarketScape model. Using the IDC MarketScape model, 16 security service providers with operations and customers in Canada were evaluated. This process included interviewing 13 providers and one or more customers from each provider, while for others that did not actively participate in this study, the evaluation was based on IDC's knowledge of their security services offerings and capabilities. Providers were measured in terms of current capabilities and future strategies for delivering services to customers in the Canadian market.
Yogesh Shivhare, research manager, Cybersecurity, at IDC Canada, says, "The Canadian security services market is very diverse and includes pure-play managed security SPs, telecommunication providers, security technology vendors, MDR providers, and boutique security consulting firms that compete aggressively in this market. Each of these vendors has unique capabilities that can meet the specific and unique needs of all Canadian organizations. Security talent and expertise, technology leadership, and availability of advanced security services such as MDR are among the prominent differentiating factors in the Canadian security services market."
