Managed security services (MSSs) with advanced threat detection and remediation capabilities are enjoying high adoption rates in Asia-Pacific, keeping the regional market buoyant despite an economic slowdown.

Evolving threats are leveraging connected devices to launch distributed denial of service (DDoS), ransomware and advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks. Enterprises are seeking more proactive security measures while government authorities want focus on protection capabilities for national critical infrastructure. 

In response, MSS providers (MSSPs) are adopting advanced security analytics platforms that feature functionalities such as forensics, and incident response across the entire system from networks to endpoints in different environments.

"In addition to traditional network security services, MSSPs should also look at other advanced security services, such as advanced endpoint detection and response (AEDR), advanced security analytics and threat intelligence, critical infrastructure protection (CIP), and advanced DDoS mitigation to prevent Internet of Things (IoT)-based DDoS attacks," said Digital Transformation Industry analyst, Vu Anh Tien.

"In terms of service model, we believe that hosted security services will see an uptake in the next five years as many customers are migrating their infrastructure to the cloud, which requires MSSPs to provide relevant services, such as hosted DDoS mitigation, Email and web security, AEDR and APT protection, to facilitate and protect the transformation and infrastructure. 

"This will drive MSSPs to work closely with security vendors and other stakeholders to leverage on their knowledge and expertise to provide these advanced services to its customers in an effective way."
