Secureworks named leader in threat lifecycle services by IDC

09 Jul 2018

Cybersecurity company Secureworks has been named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia-Pacific threat lifecycle services 2018 vendor assessment.

The IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market.

The research methodology utilises a 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 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.

Secureworks CEO Michael Cote says, “Secureworks is extremely pleased to be recognised as a leader in the IDC, Asia/Pacific Threat Lifecycle Services study.”

“Our mission is to continue to provide our clients in the Asia and Pacific region with the best solutions and security expertise available.
