With regions such as North America and Western Europe witnessing decreasing growth rates, managed security services (MSS) vendors are turning their attention to the extremely dynamic and fast-growing Latin American MSS market, which is benefiting from increasing threat levels and improving awareness about the growing necessity for foolproof network security solutions. Regulatory compliance requirements, the increase in the workforce's mobility, and the lack of qualified IT professionals to manage in-house IT departments are some of the other important factors spurring the market's growth.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (networksecurity.frost.com), Latin America Managed Security Services Markets, finds that the market earned revenues of $66.0 million in 2007 and estimates this to reach $332.7 million in 2013.

"One of the key drivers for the Latin American MSS market is the incremental growth of vulnerability, and the gap between demand and the capabilities of the vendors' security solution offerings," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Fernando Belfort. "Besides, outsourcing of MSS services minimizes IT costs and maximizes the time spent on core business."
The two countries that currently dominate the Latin American managed security services market are Brazil and Mexico, which together accounted for 65.1 percent of the Latin American MSS market in 2007. As for the market subsegments, the Firewall/VPN and IDS/IPS segments lead in revenue generation, contributing 60.7 percent of the total revenues in 2007. This being so, it is the authentication and network assessment and penetration testing services segments that are expected to see the maximum growth rates.
However, lack of awareness of the potential threats and breaches is a major restraint for the Latin American MSS market. Furthermore, there remains a degree of mistrust regarding the outsourcing of network security, particularly in the financial and banking verticals.
"The overall MSS competitive landscape in Latin America is likely to see considerable changes in the next few years," says Belfort. "The increasing presence of telcos and the growth of smaller local companies capable of offering higher cost-effective solutions could challenge the market share of top participants in the Latin American MSS market."
