IDC Survey Spotlight: Rising Demand for Third-Party Managed Security Operations Centers in the Middle East
This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes demand for third-party managed security service providers to operate and manage the security operations centers (SOCs) of organizations 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.
"The lack of skilled IT security resources that organizations face globally is evident in the countries of the GCC. Having an SOC has become essential for organizations to secure their networks, but a lack of security expertise has necessitated the use of third-party managed security service providers." —Research Analyst Suraj Godse, Telecom and IT Services, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
