Managed Security Services Market to Reach US$32.9 Billion in 2020; Driven by Increasing Complexity of Security Requirements

Oyster Bay, New York - 27 Feb 2015

​Market intelligence from ABI Research finds that the global managed security services market will be worth US$15.4 billion by the end of 2015. Implementing and managing a successful security program is a complex affair; most organizations lack the security expertise to manage security solutions from a wide variety of vendors. Rising threats, government regulations, and a lack of internal resources are driving businesses to turn to managed security service providers (MSSP) which offer expertise and dedicated security personnel.

Information security incidents are on the rise as cybercriminals increase their focus on both large and small businesses. In 2014, there was a 49% increase in data breaches and a 78% increase in the number of data records stolen or lost compared with 2013. This indicates that a comprehensive IT security system is becoming increasingly necessary across the corporate, consumer, and public sectors. “An in-depth IT security strategy protects the entire network of an enterprise from infrastructure to applications to devices. Continuous monitoring and threat detection tools have become essential. The key objective is to provide insight into all aspects of a business so that unusual activity is detected and data loss can be minimized,” says Monolina Sen, ABI Research’s Senior Analyst in Digital Security.

Security as a service is also gaining popularity mainly due to cost and flexibility benefits. Common cloud-based security services include web application security services, identity and access management, and security information and event management. The marketplace for IT security solutions is crowded and consists of a large number of players. Vendors like Wombat Security Technologies, CrowdStrike, Fujitsu, IBM, Qualys, FireEye, Oracle, Intel Security (McAfee), Cisco, Akamai, and others offer innovative and interesting solutions in this sector.
