IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy 2017 Vendor Assessment

By: Robert PalmerResearch Vice President, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions, Allison CorreiaResearch Manager, Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions


This IDC study assesses the market for print and document security solutions and services among the top global hardcopy vendors and identifies their strengths and challenges. This assessment discusses both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that position vendors for success in this important market. This IDC study is based on a comprehensive framework to evaluate security delivered as standalone features and solutions, within the context of an MPDS engagement, and as non-MPDS professional and managed services.

"For many organizations, print and document security is often overlooked when it comes to developing a comprehensive IT security strategy," says Robert Palmer, research director for IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions group. "Despite measures taken to protect IT infrastructure, the lack of visibility and oversight within the print environment creates a weak link that leaves organizations vulnerable to hackers and other cybersecurity threats."
