IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Managed Security Services 2018 Vendor Assessment

By: Cathy HuangAssociate Research Director, Services and Security, IDC Asia/Pacific

Abstract

This IDC study presents through the IDC MarketScape model a vendor assessment of providers offering managed security services. The assessment reviews against a large set of parameters, such as comprehensiveness of service offerings, portfolio benefits, delivery model, market execution, cost competitiveness, platform capabilities, and customer services that define the current market demands and expected buyer needs for managed security services. Through in-depth interviews with the managed security service providers and their customers, IDC evaluated the vendors in the study and found that each provider possesses certain strengths and weaknesses when compared with a peer group.

"Given the wide range of maturity and heterogenous nature of the region, the Asia/Pacific managed security services market is abundant with different types of players. All the participating companies in this study have been selected because they are strong providers, and each firm differentiates itself uniquely. Although it takes time to conduct a thorough evaluation and selection process, it is important for a tech buyer organization to select the right security services provider that is trusted and provides high value. Tech buyers should leverage the right MSSPs to augment and optimize their security operations and, more importantly, transform their security programs to be more aligned with their business strategies. At the same time, this expectation, along with the vastly sophisticated threat landscape, drives security services providers to step up and accelerate their own security innovation and cyberdefense strategies to ensure themselves and their serving clients steps ahead of bad guys," says Cathy Huang, senior research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Security Services.
