IDC Survey Spotlight: Analysis of the IT Security Spending Split in Gulf Cooperation Council Countries
This IDC Survey Spotlight presents IT security budgets split by hardware, software, and services in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). It contains data from a survey among CIOs conducted in GCC countries in 2019 to obtain insights into how technology influencers and decision makers view the security solutions market and what challenges they face in adopting and/or implementing upgraded and new technologies to improve work processes and efficiency.
"CIOs are taking a balanced approach to investments in security infrastructure. They are investing almost equally in security hardware, software, and services in their efforts to strengthen the security capabilities of the organization. However, managing overall security remains a challenge, and many are moving to managed security service providers — a trend resulting in increasing investments in security." — Research Analyst Suraj Godse, Telecom and IT Services, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
