This IDC study examines the IT security market in the Gulf States and the end users' views of security threats, challenges regarding IT security implementations, increasing concerns about data loss, and the solutions being considered by these organizations to alleviate internal threats.
"Companies in the Gulf acknowledge that internal threats are a major concern, but they need to start looking at creating policies and educating their employees on such policies. In addition, companies should look at data loss prevention solutions to supplement any information security policy that they implement. Organizations in the Gulf States need to realize that, concerning data loss, dangers exist not only in exposing the organization to internal problems but also in undermining consumer confidence in your business." – Research Manager Megha Kumar, Software, IDC Middle East, Africa, and Turkey
