Japan Identity and Access Management, Security and Vulnerability Management Vendor Analysis 2015
This IDC study summarizes the survey result on business situation and trends of vendors entering the Japan identity and access management (IAM) software market and security and vulnerability management (SVM) product market. For the purpose of investigation and analyses, products in the IAM software market are classified as either on-premises software or software as a service (SaaS) software, while the SVM market comprises software products and hardware products.There are always potential security incidents caused by sophisticated attack methods that may occur in companies. Furthermore, the number of incidents increases with the growing scope of attack. Thus, by the time these potential security incidents materialized, they become major threats to business continuity. "Cybersecurity Basic Law, MyNumber Act (Number Utilization Act), the legislation of Personal Information Protection Law, and the increasingly serious security incidents have forced the management level who is involved in decision-making in a company to understand the seriousness of the security threats and the efforts taken for security measures, such as cybersecurity measures and information leak measures, in their own company and to make rapid management decisions. Therefore, they must implement security management that collects, analyzes, and then monitors and manages security incident information. They must also link security incidents with corporate governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) to visualize the level of risk in order to understand the seriousness of the threats. Furthermore, information sharing between the management and security managers is also necessary because the management must decide on matters that will influence corporate activities, such as service suspension, notifications to customers, and reporting to related institutions," says Tsuneo Tosaka, software and security research manager, IDC Japan.
