Key Findings

•Managed security services (MSS) are witnessing the fastest growth among all the managed services in the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC) countries.
•The MSS market is predominantly based on customer premises equipment (CPE).
•Over 2014 to 2017, with the increase in Internet and broadband connections, the hosted MSS segment will gain traction and emerge as the fastest growing segment.
•The complexities of securing an organisation’s network and infrastructure against targeted attacks have been a major driver in adopting MSS.
•Cloud computing and virtualisation are the key market trends. The managed security service providers (MSSPs) focus on offering customer support for providers of cloud services, who offer various service delivery models such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), or Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The few vendors who are able to leverage on their expertise in network security experience high revenue growth.
•CPE-based Firewalls and intrusion detection systems/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS) are the most mature services among MSS. Currently, cloud-based security services are gaining momentum in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
•The government and business, financial services and insurance (BFSI) are the key verticals for MSS. Network security and its related services are considered the most crucial offerings by multinational companies (MNCs) in the GCC countries.

CEO’s Perspective

There is a need for cloud-based managed services in the GCC region to reduce the risk of malware infections.
Customers demand the bundling of security services with other information technology (IT) or telecom services.
Businesses are looking for a centralised access point to control traffic flow and data leakage as well as for remote connectivity.
MSSPs offer the intelligence, tools and capabilities that are necessary to understand the content and context of application traffic.
Managed services for mobile security are poised to boost MSS revenue.

Market Definitions

•MSS involve the outsourcing of network security to a third party, which hosts, monitors and responds to malicious malware and criminal activity.
•Forward-thinking IT departments are outsourcing security to dedicated MSSPs to get ahead of the latest threats while retaining oversight of security operations. This ensures the safety of intellectual property, better allocation of resources, reduced operational costs and greater peace of mind.
•MSSPs manage the life cycle of specific information security hardware and software such as IDS/IPS, firewalls, antivirus, etc. to handle security services better.
•MSSPs monitor the results of security appliances (security products) from a security operations centre (SOC). In many instances, they also manage the security appliances throughout their life cycle.
•MSSPs help customers to reduce their capital expenditure (capex) while providing in-depth expertise on security and maintaining efficient security management.
•Frost & Sullivan splits the MSS market into three segments: CPE-based MSS, hosted MSS and assessment services (professional and technical services). In this research service, only CPE-based MSS and hosted MSS will be discussed.
