This IDC study presents vendor shares in the Japan cybersecurity solutions market in 2016. For this purpose, IDC divides the market into the cybersecurity specialized threat analysis and protection products market and threat intelligence security services market. In addition to preventing malware intrusion, security solutions are required to have the resilience to swiftly detect and contain the damages caused by malware infection with the assumption of malware intrusion for malicious cyberattacks, such as ransomware attacks. To strengthen the resilience, IDC believes that it would be effective to utilize security services through advanced threat intelligence using machine learning functions and artificial intelligence (AI), and to implement threat protection products linking with threat intelligence. "Security vendors should market their security solutions that utilize threat intelligence to strengthen resilience. In doing so, it is necessary for vendors to explain to user companies and seek their understanding that security solutions implemented with the assumption of security intrusion reduce risks for companies," said Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
