Make sense of MSS and get expert advice on how to choose an MSS provider with Gartner 2020 Market Guide for Managed Security Services.
Gartner says “Security and risk management leaders use MSSs to identify, advise and, where appropriate, respond to threats on their behalf.”
According to Gartner, “the MSS market has shifted away from providers that had expertise in delivering and maintaining security technologies or simply detect and alert customers about threats (“throwing alerts over the wall”) with little or no context. Now, the market features a set of providers that deliver security insights and interpret security requirements so as to prioritize and focus a buyer on security issues that have direct risk impacts to that organization.”
“By 2025, 50% of organizations will allow third parties to go beyond pure monitoring for security breaches but also provide mitigation using remotely accessible security technologies, up from 15% today.” 1
You can use a Market Guide to understand how the status of an emerging market aligns with your future plans. In addition, since Gartner has published over 100 Market Guide research notes, IT and strategic leaders can gain a broad view of many markets, in an easy-to-read format.
