2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Managed Security Services

By clicking the button above I confirm that I have read and agree to the eSentire privacy policy.

The 2022 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Security Services (MSS) acknowledges that "MSS has become a broad term to describe an overlay for a variety of different security services. The market has diverged and security and risk management (SRM) leaders rarely ask directly for MSS, but instead focus on detection and response, exposure, incident response and security technology management."

In this guide, Gartner shares key findings and recommendations for SRM leaders, including:

  • "Managed security services (MSS) providers offer an array of security services that vary from provider to provider. This breadth of service offerings provides wide choice but increasingly overlaps with capabilities offered by other market segments.
  • Differentiation and comparison between MSS providers can be hard for buyers to quantify, as service capabilities and delivery models vary greatly from provider to provider.
  • SaaS security capabilities have taken precedence for many buyers, significantly reducing the requirement to utilize a third-party provider to maintain security technology.
  • Non-security-specific vendors in the IT outsourcing (ITO) and network service provider (NSP) markets commonly offer implementation and management services for security technologies, reducing cost by co-contracting network, desktop and security outsourcing."

This report further mentions, "The MSS market grew 8.3% in 2020, reaching $12.7 billion in revenue. However, the MDR market has become a significant portion of service revenue for managed security service providers."
