This IDC Market Share examines the Western European security software market.
"While segmental characteristics play a role, it is the ability to support and even drive strategic priorities such as secure digital transformation and enhanced security decision making that determine the performance of Western European security software vendors," said Dominic Trott, research manager, IDC's European Security Strategies CIS program. "Vendors that can help prepare their customers for the post-perimeter reality of security, whether by extending controls beyond the perimeter to focus on data and identity or by enabling proactive processes through next-generation analytics, are positioned to succeed in winning market share. Those that remain rooted to legacy models will see their ability to act as a strategic partner for customers undermined."
