Managed Security Services Market Trends in South Africa
This IDC Market Perspective analyzes current trends in the managed security services market of South Africa. It examines prevailing trends among managed security services (MSS) and presents them in the context of South Africa from an end-user perspective. It also considers the key factors in determining providers' ability to meet the evolving needs of MSS customers in the short term and over the long term.
"Successful MSS players need to provide cost-effective customized services that are easy to consume and maintain. Organizations tend to make decisions based on providers' demonstration of added value to their business vision and goals. Customers in South Africa are sensitive to MSSPs' commitment in the country and will often look for in-country services delivery capabilities." — Associate Research Director Shilpi Handa, IDC META
