Published: 14 Feb 2018

The Japanese MSS market grew by a healthy 14.8% on a year-on-year (YoY) basis. It was the largest market in APAC. The MSS market was driven by the increasing complicated and sophisticated cyber threats. Japanese enterprises needed support from security specialists given by MSS providers. This was owing to the limited knowledge of in-house IT engineers or security analysts about the latest cyber threats. Other important drivers included the changing Japanese enterprises’ investment trends. They preferred to invest in services instead of on-premise solutions. This investment trend will continue to drive the Japanese MSS market. In addition to market growth analysis, the study highlights the driving forces of the managed security services (MSS) market. The shortage of cyber security professionals with strong expertise was the top factor driving enterprises to engage with MSSPs to help them cope with new security challenges. The evolution of advanced threats continued to cause greater operational pressure on companies, driving them to look at MSSPs to reduce the pressure and better security threat management. The introduction and amendment of cyber security laws and regulations are urging companies to focus more on regulatory compliance. The shift from CapEx to OpEx continued to take place across the APAC region, prompting companies to outsource parts of their security practices to focus more on the revenue-generating operations. Market trends have been analyzed for the period 2015 to 2021, with 2016 as the base year. Hosted security services (HSS) and customer-premises equipment (CPE)-based management and monitoring services are the key service segments in this study. Vertical segmentation includes the government, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), service provider, manufacturing, education, and other sectors including pharmaceuticals, retail, logistics, oil and gas, energy, mining, agriculture, Information Technology (IT)/IT-enabled services (ITeS), eGaming, eCommerce, and business process outsourcing (BPO). Companies mentioned in the Japanese MSS market’s vendor analysis include NTT, IBM Security, Verizon, NRI secure, LAC, Symantec, Secureworks, NEC, BT, and Singtel Cyber Security.
