IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Managed Security Services 2017 Vendor Assessment

By: Martha VazquezSenior Research Analyst, Infrastructure Services


This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of providers offering managed security services (MSS) through the IDC MarketScape model. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for MSS. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses how each vendor stacks up to one another, and the framework highlights the key factors that are expected to be the most significant for achieving success in the MSS market over the short term and the long term.

"The security landscape is changing rapidly, and organizations continue to struggle to maintain their own in-house security solutions and staff. As a result, organizations are turning to managed security service providers (MSSPs) to deliver a wide span of security capabilities and consulting services, which include predicative threat intelligence and advanced detection and analysis expertise that are necessary to overcome the security challenges happening today as well as prepare organizations against future attacks. The MSSP market is highly competitive, and many MSSPs have a breadth of security services in their MSS portfolio. The differentiation among these MSSPs will be tied around their flexibility in delivering security services and advanced MSS capabilities and how these MSSPs can continue to assist organizations with their security needs today and in the future." — Martha Vazquez, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Services
