Worldwide IT Security Products Forecast, 2018–2022: Do You Make Friends or Acquire Technology to Round Out a Portfolio?

This IDC study discusses the forecast for the worldwide IT security products market for 2018–2022."In 2017, the IT security products market officially pivoted, as the industry finally paused in the post-Target breach era and recognized that new tools and technologies are not a panacea for all ills; integrating and automating security architectures to relieve the strain on the most precious asset, our security professional, now becomes a primary goal," said Chris Kissel, research director, Security Products, IDC. "Analytics, intelligence, automation, and orchestration tools will take on an increasing importance to create visibility over multiple surfaces, bridge the transition between incident detection and incident response, and hasten the interval between mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to network anomalies."
