“Companies are increasingly realizing the benefits of hiring a third part provider to manage security,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Marcelo Kawanami. “Some of the benefits of Managed Security Services (MSS) include reduced costs with specialized labor, decreased investments in purchasing security equipment and more time available to focus on the company’s core business.”
Two basic factors drive the network security landscape, the constantly increasing vulnerabilities and the gap between the demand and the capacity vendors can offer of security solutions. Another short-term driver is the pressure of regulatory acts, such as Sarbane Oxley and Basel II, making the banking and financial vertical one of the top consumers in the security space. In addition, due to the difficulties of having qualified personnel in the security arena and the expenditures a security infrastructure demands, the managed network security service is a good solution to companies that need to secure their businesses.
Simultaneously, one of the biggest challenges of this market is to convince potential clients to trust a third part provider to take care of internal vital and confidential information.
“The MSS market has other short term challenges such as overall prices charged for this service are considered high and the lack of MSS providers (MSSP) with local structure to offer the service,” explains Kawanami. “A relevant factor to mention is that most of the clients in the MSS space are multinationals that already have the security outsourcing concept from their headquarters.”
The competitive structure of the MSS landscape is becoming more complex and competitive. This market space is composed of IT pure players, telecom service providers, system integrators, network security vendors and consulting firms such as Accenture and KPMG.
