Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Security Software and Appliance Forecast, 2017-2022
This IDC study provides a five-year forecast for the APEJ security software market."In an 'application economy' where software architectures such as microservices and efficient business processes such as Agile and DevOps can create new moats for an organization, strong security frameworks will double up as enablers of these competitive differentiators, in addition to creating digital confidence in the minds of customers. Organizations in the region also need to take heed of the strengthening compliance regulations, which are in vogue, taking different avatars of the Europe's GDPR even as fresh regulations are firing up debates about increased surveillance by governments. The U.S.-Huawei security scandal also shows colors of political retaliation invigorating nationalist fervor, potentially impacting global and local PRC security vendors in the short term, " says Gurpal Singh, senior market analyst, IDC's APEJ Software Group."The security appliance market has seen and will continue to grow with most of the network security deployments driving the market. With the region still holding growth trajectory for its technology maturity, skill-set gap, and the pains of managing and integrating multiple point solutions, a platform-based approach that provides ease of management and the ability to seamlessly integrate third-party solutions will be valued very much across the enterprise. While considering new refresh, organizations will evaluate adding specialized functions or managed security services, or upgrading to a comprehensive solution," says Shahnawas Latiff, senior market analyst, IDC's APEJ Software Group.
