The number of European organisations moving to managed security services continues to grow, and they face an increasing range of providers.
Identifying the most effective supplier can be challenging, and an independent assessment of performance is increasingly valuable in choosing a supplier.
IDC has studied how service providers are helping organisations to manage and control security and data privacy amidst a highly disruptive environment and ever sophisticated cyberattacks. The IDC MarketScape report evaluated organisations that provide managed security services across Europe.

Our recent investment in Safe Security was also highlighted, as our risk and predictive capabilities were seen as becoming increasingly important in light of recent supply chain attacks such as SolarWinds.
The IDC MarketScape report states that the use of proprietary technology in transformational new cyber defence platform ‘Eagle-i', and the platform’s ability to draw on threat intelligence from our extensive European network infrastructure, “makes it hard to match precisely by other MSSPs.”
