The Western European MSS market is divided into three subsegments (Table 1). It also consists of 16 geographies (Table 2). "MSS is the fastest-growing segment of the Western European security services market, driven by a perfect storm of increasingly challenging business requirements and a shortage of skills and capabilities," said Dominic Trott, research manager, IDC's Western European Security. "The market is going through a period of evolution. The market is dominated — in revenue terms — by foundational activities such as device management, patch management, and log monitoring. But to add value for customers, MSSPs need to deliver more advanced capabilities. The application of resources such as threat intelligence and Big Data/analytics capabilities are key for MSSPs to solve the evolving challenges faced by security teams."
