This IDC MarketScape presents a vendor assessment of 17 managed security services providers in the context of the Asia/Pacific region. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for MSS. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses how each vendor stacks up to one another, and the framework highlights the key factors that are expected by technology buyers when selecting a managed security services (MSS) partner.
This IDC research has identified six market leaders, including NTT Com, IBM, CSC, BT, Symantec, and Verizon. Eleven MSSPs have been categorized under major players, including Dimension Data, Singtel, Accenture, HPE, Wipro, Quann (formerly known as e-Cop), Fujitsu, HCL, Telstra, Orange, and AT&T.
"We have found that all the participating MSSPs have enhanced the breadth of their MSS portfolios in the past 12 months. However, the depth of advanced MSS capabilities and flexibility to deliver MSS vastly differentiated the vendors from one another," says Cathy Huang, the lead analyst for security services, IDC Asia/Pacific.
Huang adds "Also, with cybersecurity becoming more tied to enterprises' business objectives, buyers have begun to seek vendors that demonstrate an intimate understanding of their business objectives and operations."
