This IDC study presents IDC's taxonomy of the security products market. It provides definitions of security products across four major platforms: software licenses, virtualization, appliances, and software as a service. It is the foundation for IDC's forecast and market share documents for security in 2018. IDC market sizing, forecasts, and company models are generated by IDC analysts around the world using this taxonomy.
"IDC's security products taxonomy provides a comprehensive and detailed framework for the security marketplace and is an essential resource for understanding how IDC defines security products in terms of software, hardware, virtualized products, and SaaS," says Frank Dickson, research director for IDC's Worldwide Security Products and Services group.
