What is the IDC Worldwide Managed Detection and Response Vendor Assessment Report?

Who is IDC, and What is Their Experience with MDR Vendors?

IDC, a global market intelligence firm, has extensive experience evaluating and assessing ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers. They utilize a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.

IDC Analysts have expertise in understanding the diverse landscape of MDR service providers, including MDR providers, traditional managed security service providers (MSSPs), and security technology vendors that integrate MDR services into their comprehensive security solutions.

IDC's MDR assessments provide a comprehensive view of MDR vendors, enabling technology buyers to make informed decisions based on the evaluated vendors' capabilities, strategies, and market success factors.
