IDC MarketScape provides an assessment of emerging managed security services providers

International Data Corporation (IDC) has published a new MarketScape vendor assessment profiling ten emerging vendors in the US managed security services (MSS) market, the company said.

The ten managed security services providers (MSSPs) featured in the report are Century Link, EY, Herjavec Group, Infosys, Kudelski Security, Masergy, Nuspire, Optiv, Oracle, and Rackspace.

The evolving security landscape, growing compliance requirements, and the changing IT environment have created many challenges for organizations. Organizations are struggling to acquire the security expertise to assist in managing and monitoring the constant flow of security threats, and to fully implement and integrate the growing number of tools that their security teams have acquired.

As a result, organizations are turning to MSSPs to deliver the security expertise, span of security capabilities and consulting services to assist in preparing, detecting, and responding against future attacks.

IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of IT, telecommunications, or industry-specific suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor´s position within a given market.
