Worldwide Endpoint Security Market Shares, 2017: A New Market Narrative Emerges
This IDC study discusses worldwide endpoint security market shares for 2017.
"As enamored as we may want to be with technology and blinded by terms like next generation and machine learning, every business eventually needs to embrace the reality that revenue must exceed expenses or, at a minimum, vendors need to be cash flow positive. IDC cannot help but see an era of increased competition as companies look to consolidate from a potpourri of endpoint security products that they have cobbled together over time to a single solution provider. Not only is it easier to manage a single vendor but the drive to reduce the number of agents is very, very real." — Frank Dickson, research vice president, Security Products
