New IDC MarketScape Evaluates 15 Security Services Providers in Canada
TORONTO, ON., August 22, 2019 — International Data Corporation (IDC) Canada today announced the publication of a new report, IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2019 Vendor Assessment (IDC#CA44419519), which provides an in-depth analysis of companies that provide security service offerings to the Canadian market.
IDC compared 15 security service providers with operations and customers in Canada using our IDC MarketScape model. As a result of this study, IDC Canada has found six IDC MarketScape Leaders, eight IDC MarketScape Major Players, and an IDC MarketScape Contender in the Canadian security services market. The 15 vendors evaluated in this IDC MarketScape are: Bell, Deloitte, Difenda, eSentire, GoSecure, Herjavec Group, Hitachi Systems Security, IBM Canada, ISA, Long View Systems, Optiv, Scalar (A CDW Company), Secureworks, TELUS and Trustwave.
"There has never been more choice of providers for Canadian organizations in the security services market. Pure-play MSSPs, telecommunication providers, vendors, MDR providers, and consulting firms all have unique capabilities that can meet the needs of organizations large and small. Support for public cloud security services, MDR, and hosted solutions enhanced by machine learning and automation and orchestration will differentiate the security service provider of the future," said report author, Kevin Lonergan, Research Manager of Security and Infrastructure at IDC Canada, and lead analyst for the Canadian Security Market Dynamics program.
Canadian organizations have many choices when it comes to security services, and recommends evaluations based on several criteria to find the right provider to meet their needs. For more information about this IDC MarketScape, please contact Kevin Lonergan.
