Greater China Managed Security Services Market, Forecast to 2020

The managed security services (MSS) market in Greater China region grew by 20.7% on a year-on-year (YoY) basis, achieving market revenue of $305.8 million in 2015. The adoption of hosted or cloud-based MSS continued to experience steady growth, as the delivery of cloud-based services is gaining popularity in the region. An increasingly sophisticated threat landscape, be it Advanced Persistent Threats and other advanced targeted attacks, has raised concerns amongst enterprises to outsource to trusted third-party experts for advanced services. The majority of MSS revenue was contributed by monitoring/management services as most of the enterprises were experiencing the shortage of expertise with security management experience. The lack of skilled cyber security professionals has left businesses exposed to attacks and hence promoted the adoption of MSS in the Greater China region. End-user scope: Enterprise horizontals (large businesses and small and medium businesses) and Enterprise verticals (BFSI [banking, financial services, and insurance], manufacturing, government, education, service providers, and others). Market overview and adoption trends, market forecast (2015-2020), market share and competitive analysis, growth opportunities and call to action, regional breakdown analysis, and MSS vendor analysis have also been provided for the Greater China MSS market. What makes Frost & Sullivan's deliverables unique? Frost & Sullivan’s cyber security reports offer insights into the latest technologies to improve companies’ cyber security posture.
