This IDC study presents an aggregated worldview of IDC's taxonomy for the security services market. It provides the definitions of security services across three major segments:

  • Professional security services (including consulting, GRC, incident management, and implementation and integration)
  • Managed security services (including MDR, managed infrastructure, and other managed security services)
  • Deployment and training

This taxonomy is used by IDC's global team of analysts to generate IDC market sizing, forecasts, and company models. IDC's security services taxonomy presents a comprehensive and standardized view of the worldwide security services marketplace. It is the premier source for defining and categorizing security services.

"A taxonomy is crucial to understanding an IT landscape. The worldwide security services taxonomy is designed to make sense of all the different types of available security services that can address security concerns, mitigate risk, and keep an enterprise safe from cyberattacks." — Scott Tiazkun, research manager, Worldwide Security Services at IDC.
