"The evolving security landscape, growing compliance requirements, and the changing IT environment have caused many challenges for organizations. Organizations are struggling to acquire the security expertise to assist in managing and monitoring the constant flow of security threats and to fully implement and integrate the growing number of tools that their security teams have acquired. As a result, organizations are turning to managed security SPs to deliver the security expertise, span of security capabilities and consulting services to assist in preparing, detecting, and responding against future attacks. The managed security SP market is highly competitive, and many managed security SPs have a breadth of security services in their MSS portfolio. The differentiation among these managed security SPs will be tied around their flexibility in delivering security services and advanced detection and response capabilities and how these managed security SPs can provide holistic solutions that are tied to their clients' unique needs, both today and in the future." — Martha Vazquez, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Services
