IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy 2022—2023 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study assesses the market for print and document security solutions and services among the most prominent 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.
"Organizations need help understanding how hybrid work models will impact print and document security," says Robert Palmer, research vice president for IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions group. There are many security vulnerabilities associated with the print ecosystem that will only be exacerbated when remote devices are brought into the mix, and proper consideration needs to be given to issues such as endpoint security, data protection, and zero trust policies.
