IDC Tech Spotlight:
Consolidation of Managed Security

Learn why organizations increasingly favor managed security services and how the market is evolving in use of cohesive platforms.

According to IDC, IT decision makers are increasingly seeking managed security services and are benefiting from a consolidation of their security technology. Mid-market organizations, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), are increasingly confronted by cybersecurity challenges – that extend beyond breaches, and into staffing, operational efficiency, and use of their technology. While technology provides a foundation for organizations to build their security maturity, it’s necessary to back your security operations with a robust team and mature processes.

In the IDC Technology Spotlight (March 2021), sponsored by Netsurion, analysts highlight the benefits that security teams gain from technology consolidation. The spotlight covers this market trend and how it impacts both end users and service providers. With consolidation, technology teams are streamlining point product complexity to improve security controls and outcomes.
