Frustrated by an ever changing and increasingly complex set of security solutions, mid-market organizations – and the IT service providers who work with them – are looking to consolidate their tech security stacks. Organizations are now finding methods to decrease the number and complexity of technology solutions and in turn improve efficiencies and reduce costs.

In Q2 2021 IDC Technology utilized their data and industry contacts to analyze how IT teams are dealing with tech sprawl. Their findings highlight a noticeable trend in tech consolidation, and the benefits that IT Security teams can gain from relying on – and installing – fewer tech solutions. We’ll review the methodology, data, and findings in our upcoming webinar alongside IDC.

In this webcast, Mark Cornwell, CIO of Netsurion and Craig Robinson, Program Director, Security at IDC highlighted the advantages of security tech consolidation, including:

  • How vendor and technology consolidation improves cybersecurity outcomes
  • How managed platforms overcome challenges like tuning, alarm fatigue, and security staff shortages
  • Why managed security services are moving beyond protection to Managed Detection and Response (MDR) to stop more advanced threats
