Western Europe Security Software Forecast, 2018-2022
Published: July 24, 2018 Content info: 27 Pages

This IDC Market Forecast provides a market sizing for the Western European security software market in 2017. This sizing is split across the seven segments of the market, as well as the 16 geographies that form Western Europe. It also provides a four-year forecast for 7 segments and 16 geographies in the Western European region for 2018-2022."The Western European security software market is at a crossroads. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation, which has been such a strong driver for security software spend, is now enforceable. Although compliance programs are ongoing, vendors need to find new ways to appeal to buyers. In a highly competitive marketplace, vendors must focus on how they are different from their competitors, and particularly how they can help to drive business benefits. Themes such as operational efficiencies, risk management, and digital trust are advisable focus areas," said Dominic Trott, associate research director, IDC's European Security Research Team.
