Executive Summary

•In 2011, the managed security service provider (MSSP) market continued to see strong global growth rates. The MSSP channel, driven by lower costs and higher efficiency rates, is lucrative in many parts of the world.
•The economic slowdown that began in 2009 has actually contributed to the growth of the MSSP market because MSSPs help organizations reduce expenditures while allowing them to maintain strong security postures.
•Globally, MSSPs are experiencing growth as organizations look for security service providers to help these organizations deliver security capabilities that go beyond their in-house experiences and abilities.
•The complexity of managing today’s internal and external threats has led organizations to outsource security management, therefore increasing MSSP demand.
•Moreover, strong regulations are forcing businesses to improve security, satisfy compliance requirements, and reduce costs.
•As the growth of and demand for services increase, MSSPs are expanding the breadth of their portfolios to address the complexity of securing an organization’s infrastructure and network.
•Key offerings today go beyond the management and monitoring of security services. Customers are looking for MSSPs to define security projects, identify gaps in their security postures, and assist with compliance requirements.
•With increasing demand, MSSPs are able to offer more services as customer premises equipment (CPE) based or as a cloud based.
•Within the current MSSP market, basic CPE-based firewalls and intrusion detection systems/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS) represent the most mature services, but cloud-based security services are gaining momentum. Some key high-growth services in the cloud-based security service spectrum include security information event management (SIEM), log management, Web filtering, and e-mail filtering.
•Perceived commoditization of the market is a challenge for many MSSPs. Customers find it difficult to understand the competitive differences and benefits among various MSSPs.
