The customer premise equipment (CPE) managed security services (MSS) market is in its growth stage and holds enormous potential over the next few years. European and global telecoms and network services companies, European and global system integrators (SIs) as well as pure play MSS competitors are set to spur market take-off.

"The cumulative effect of complex new laws and the lack of qualified and experienced security personnel is that companies are forced to seriously consider outsourcing the security of their network infrastructure as an economical, reliable and round-the-clock alternative to a small internal security team," observes Frost & Sullivan Programme Manager Jose Lopez. "This growing appeal of the MSSP model in Europe is led by telcos such as BT, Orange, KPN and Verizon as well as global system integrators such as IBM and specialist European providers such as Integralis and Vistorm. The presence of strong competitors in the region, committed to the MSS model will drive its acceptance in Europe over the long-term."
Strong growth projections notwithstanding, the European market is far from being homogeneous. Regions such as the entire Eastern Europe are still in their infancy. However, the maturity level in countries such as the United Kingdom is similar to that in the United States.
As end users become more comfortable with the MSS model, growth in different industries and among businesses of all sizes is likely to accelerate. Large businesses and governments will continue to remain the key target markets for MSSPs. However, given the abundance of SMBs across Europe, MSSPs will increasingly offer specific solutions for businesses of this type. This will positively influence the growth of this market in the region.
Despite this promising scenario, challenges remain. Industry leading providers estimate that well over half of large multinational corporations have chosen to keep their network management in house. Therefore, the primary competitors are not the MSSPs themselves, but rather the enterprises that choose to rely on their existing internal IT administrators to manage their networks.
"Rather than stubbornly adhering to the early industry paradigm of choosing between the total outsourcing of an enterprise's network, or keeping it altogether in house, MSSPs are increasingly positioning themselves as partners to existing network managers within the enterprise." highlights Lopez. "As partners, MSSPs are able to not only provide complementary services and analysis, but provide cost efficiencies, 24/7 network coverage, and decrease network bandwidth that is wasted through inappropriate usage."
