Toronto, ON., – International Data Corporation (IDC) Canada announced today the release of a new report assessing security service providers in the Canadian business landscape. IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2017 Vendor Assessment measures the capabilities among security service providers with operations and customers in Canada. This process included interviewing 11 providers on their managed and professional security services. Providers were measured across 6 key categories that evaluate current capabilities, and future strategies for delivery of services to customers in the Canadian market.
The Canadian security services market is evolving quickly, and the competitive landscape is quite different than it was only a few years ago. IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2017 Vendor Assessment studies a range of Canadian pure-play security providers, IT consulting firms, system integrators, and large multinational security vendors/providers.
Key results of the report include:
- IBM, Deloitte, Bell, CGI and the Herjavec Group earned the distinction of placing in the Leaders category.
- Above Security, eSentire, Scalar, SecureWorks, Trustwave and Paladion distinguished themselves by placing in the Major Players category.
- The Leaders provide a complete range of services that have the potential to meet the needs of the smallest business to the largest enterprise.
- IDC notes that not all players are ideally suited for all size, regional and industry segments. For example, budget is the top roadblock to improving security for Canadian organizations, and finding a security provider that can offer appropriately priced solutions can be as, or even more important, than breadth of service for some organizations.
