    U.S. Enterprises Look to Cyber Security Providers for Help with New Regulations

    ISG Provider Lens™ report finds companies in the U.S. looking for cyber security solutions driven by artificial intelligenceSTAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. enterprises are looking for cyber security providers to assist them with the challenges of new regulatory requirements, stiff penalties for breaches, and the migration of business technologies to the cloud, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Cyber Security – Solutions & Services Report for the U.S. finds U.S. companies looking for hardened security controls such as data encryption, multifactor authentication, breach notification protocols and the active use of data loss prevention tools.“Data protection is becoming increasingly important to U.S. companies,” said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “At public companies, data protection has become a top priority of boards of directors, with governing risk committees being formed and members now required to be educated or trained in cyber security. Cyber security and risk management are now C-level functions and are becoming increasingly integrated at the corporate level.”New regulations and risk management frameworks are pushing U.S. companies to become more proactive about their cyber security, the report says. Many companies are deploying new monitoring tools to detect suspicious activity. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are enabling better analytic processes to prioritize and alert enterprise security officers of potentially dangerous events.Cyber security spending was growing about 8 percent a year before the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is now forecast to grow between 2 and 3 percent in 2020, the report says. Identity and access management (IAM) and data loss prevention (DLP) services are expected to grow slightly faster than the overall cyber security market, with cloud services expected to grow 30 percent this year.The report sees IAM services moving to the cloud, although many U.S. companies still use in-house software solutions. But with a rapid increase in external cyberattacks and internal threats, the need for reliable and user-friendly IAM is driving growth in this area. The IAM market will continue evolving in both the product feature portfolio and the go-to-market strategies of service providers, the report predicts.The DLP market, meanwhile, is undergoing rapid change, the report says. With new privacy regulations in some states, most notably the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), DLP has become a required security control, and many U.S. enterprises are adopting DLP solutions. Many DLP providers continue to offer on-premises solutions, but they are also providing separate solutions for applications and services in the cloud.The report also sees the U.S. strategic service market being driven by companies looking to improve their cyber security programs. An evaluation of current enterprise security programs typically generates a gap analysis that can be used as the foundation for a new security strategy.In addition, managed security services are changing from traditional monitor-and-react models to a more proactive one that includes both defensive and offensive capabilities, the report says. Increasingly, customers are engaging providers to coordinate their incident response teams.The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Cyber Security – Solutions & Services Report for the U.S. evaluates the capabilities of 70 providers across five quadrants: Identity & Access Management, Data Leakage/Loss Prevention, Technical Security Services, Strategic Security Services and Managed Security Services.The report names IBM as a leader in all five quadrants and Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, Deloitte, DXC Technology, HCL and Wipro as leaders in three quadrants. Broadcom, Secureworks and Verizon are named leaders in two quadrants, and Digital Guardian, EY, Forcepoint, McAfee, Microsoft, NTT, Okta, Oracle, Ping Identity, RSA and Varonis are named as leaders in one.The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Cyber Security – Solutions & Services Report for the U.S. is available to subscribers or for one-time purchase on this webpage.

    ISG Index: Managed Services Hits 14-Year Low in Asia Pacific

    ITO, BPO markets slump on COVID-19 concerns, as companies turn to cloud-based servicesSYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Buffeted by pandemic concerns, the managed services market in Asia Pacific fell in the third quarter to its lowest level in 14 years, according to the latest state-of-the-industry report from Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.The Asia Pacific ISG Index™, which measures commercial outsourcing contracts with annual contract value (ACV) of US $5 million or more, shows the region’s managed services market plummeted 48 percent in the third quarter, to US $338 million, its worst showing since 2006. Within managed services, information technology outsourcing (ITO) was down 50 percent, to US $277 million, and business process outsourcing (BPO) was down 32 percent, to US $61 million.Meanwhile, ACV for cloud-based services, traditionally the dominant force in the region’s sourcing success, was up 6 percent in the third quarter, to US $1.6 billion. That figure includes infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), up 8 percent, to US $1.4 billion, and software-as-a-service (SaaS), down 8 percent, to US $222 million—one of its lightest quarters in the last three years.Asia Pacific’s combined market (both managed services and as-a-service) was down 10 percent, to US $1.97 billion, despite overall growth in the as-a-service segment.“Asia Pacific began the year with a record quarter for cloud-based services, but the as-a-service market has drifted lower the last two quarters, reflecting slowing investment due to the pandemic,” said Scott Bertsch, partner and regional leader, ISG Asia Pacific. “This quarter, the growth in cloud-based services was not enough to lift the combined market in Asia Pacific.”Market-share battles in cloud infrastructure continue to rage across the region, especially in India, where the action is heating up in the telco, broadband internet and public cloud markets, Bertsch said. AWS, for example, signed an agreement with Bharti Airtel to bring more cloud services to companies in India, while Microsoft formed a partnership with Jio.In the managed services arena, Bertsch noted that contract volume fell back to more typical levels in the third quarter after a rise in contracting activity the previous quarter. “Virtually all the deals were below US $20 million,” said Bertsch. “Large awards, historically a challenge for Asia Pacific, have dried up since the onset of COVID-19, and the path to closing those deals has grown longer.”Notable bright spots, Bertsch said, were Accenture winning a sizable transaction with a large manufacturer in Asia, and IBM closing a deal with the Airport Authority of Hong Kong.Year-to-Date PerformanceFor the first nine months, Asia Pacific’s combined market dropped 7 percent, to US $6.4 billion. Managed services dropped 41 percent, to US $1.4 billion, on a lack of large deals, with ITO (down 40 percent, to US $1.2 billion) and BPO (down 49 percent, to US $197 million) both contributing to the poor performance. Most of the region’s geographic markets were down substantially, except for Australia-New Zealand (ANZ), which saw its ACV grow 3 percent year to date.As-a-Service, meanwhile, rose 11 percent, to US $5 billion, although this segment is growing much more slowly than in previous years. IaaS was up 14 percent, to US $4.3 billion, even as SaaS declined 6 percent, to US $695 million.Global Forecast ISG is forecasting the global managed services market will be down 6 percent for the full year, 150 basis points better than its July forecast. The firm is projecting the global as-a-service market will grow by 15.5 percent in 2020, up from its 11 percent forecast in July.About the ISG Index™The ISG Index™ is recognized as the authoritative source for marketplace intelligence on the global technology and business services industry. For 72 consecutive quarters, it has detailed the latest industry data and trends for financial analysts, enterprise buyers, software and service providers, law firms, universities and the media. In 2016, the ISG Index was expanded to include coverage of the fast-growing as-a-service market, measuring the significant impact cloud-based services are having on digital business transformation. ISG also provides ongoing analysis of automation and other digital technologies in its quarterly ISG Index presentations.

    ISG to Publish Study on Providers of Procurement Outsourcing Services and Software Tools

    Upcoming ISG Provider Lens™ report will look at how providers are helping clients modernize their procurement processesSTAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched a research study examining providers of procurement-related technologies and services.The study results will be published in a comprehensive ISG Provider Lens™ report, called Procurement BPO and Transformation Services, scheduled to be released in February. The report will focus on both providers of procurement-related business process outsourcing (BPO) services and the software platforms and tools enterprises can use to centralize procurement and purchasing activity and conduct real-time analysis of related data.Enterprise buyers will be able to use information from the report to evaluate their current vendor relationships, potential new engagements and available offerings, while ISG advisors use the information to recommend providers to the firm’s buy-side clients.The new report will focus on how providers of procurement BPO services and platforms and tools are helping their customers adopt more modern and efficient procurement and purchasing processes, said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.“For several years, procurement functions have been transitioning from supply management and overseeing transactional activity to more holistic participation within the business,” he said. “As enterprises pivot to more integrated, digital operating environments, they will look to their procurement professionals to help foster business agility, reduce the negative impacts of supply chain disruption, improve processes and reduce costs.”ISG has distributed surveys to more than 55 providers of procurement-related services. Working in collaboration with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce three quadrants representing the services and products the typical enterprise client is buying in the procurement BPO and platforms and tools space, based on ISG’s experience working with its clients.The three quadrants that will be covered are: * Procurement BPO Services, including the outsourcing of strategic procurement activities, like supplier selection, contract negotiation or specification management. Outsourcing procurement can help enterprises streamline operations and reduce costs while allowing business transformation and rapid market adaptation that may not be possible with in-house functions. * Procurement Digital Transformation Services, providing a framework for transitioning procurement operations and functionality from a tactical cost center to a strategic value-added profit center. This requires combinations of transformation models, strategic consulting and expertise, technologies and tools, software and services knowledge and more, varying by market and individual enterprise. * Procurement Optimization and Transformation Platforms and Tools, which help integrate key functions into a single, centralized system, while enabling secure, reliable and extendable capabilities that are applied and adapted as the business changes. The best solutions provide visibility and help analyze the entire process via a common user experience (UX). This, in turn, enables expanded insight into and use of standardized procurement functions, data and policies within and across multiple enterprise functional organizations.The report will cover the global procurement technology and services market, and will be authored by ISG analysts Shahid Bhatty, Bruce Guptill and Venkatesh B.A list of identified providers and vendors and further details on the study are available in these brochures: Procurement BPO and Transformation Services and Procurement Optimization and Transformation Platforms and Tools. Companies not listed as procurement-related providers can contact ISG and ask to be included in the study.
