The managed security services market will generate about $40.97 billion by 2022, representing a 16.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016, according to Allied Market Research.

MSPs and their MSSP (managed security service provider) cousins can offer a range of services. But for this particular market forecast, Allied Market Research focused on:

  • Intrusion Protection & Intrusion Detection Systems (IPS/IDS);
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection;
  • Unified Threat Management (UTM);
  • Firewall Management;
  • Endpoint Security; and
  • several other areas.

In terms of the key trends, Allied Research says:

  • While North America is the largest managed security market, the Asia-Pacific region is growing fastest (20.3% CAGR);
  • The IPS/DPS market is expected to exhibit a "remarkable growth" rate during the forecast period.
  • Key players at the enterprise level include IBM Corp., HP Enterprise, Cisco Systems Inc., SecureWorks, Symantec, AT&T, BT Group, Verizon, and others.

ChannelE2E Says: This report -- and the implications for channel partners and MSPs -- is somewhat similar to a Security as a Service report from Persistence Market Research. Overall, many MSPs are scrambling to push beyond basic endpoint security (i.e., antivirus services) to offer multi-layer security. There's real risk that some MSPs won't be up to the challenge, which essentially opens the door for outsourced NOC (network operations center ) and SOC (security operations center) providers to fill the market voids.
