Introduction

Security is top of mind at large enterprises today and at the board level. In this report we look at managed security service providers in Asia-Pacific that help customers protect and defend their IT environments.

Highlights

  • Ovum research indicates that 2016 spending on cybersecurity protection by businesses for data and user protection alone will exceed $37bn. However, many enterprises today still have reactive security posture. Without a clear security strategy, they would be continually patching gaps in their IT environment instead of proactively protecting it.

Features and Benefits

  • This report analyzes the main challenges to businesses in dealing with security threat in Asia. It discusses what they have to do to improve their security posture.
  • Shows that one in three companies in South Asia are keen to install new MSS systems or completely replace their current ones, while a quarter of their counterparts in South East Asia are looking to transform their MSS and that there is a real opening for MSSPs to grow MSS opportunities in the region.

Key questions answered

  • Who are the key managed security services providers in Asia Pacific? What are the main managed service security offerings? How do they differentiate themselves in the market?
  • What are enterprise customers demanding? Where the gaps are in terms of supply and demand?
