NEW YORK, NY, US, 30 June 2021—Deloitte was recently named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Cloud Security Services 2021 Vendor Assessment (doc # AP47097721, June 2021). The IDC MarketScape recognizes Deloitte as a leader with differentiated capabilities and strategies in cloud platform engineering, learning programs, and talent.

In defining the market, the IDC MarketScape shares, “The cloud-first approach took the Asia/Pacific market by storm in 2020. Fast-growing organizations in Asia/Pacific tend to adopt a cloud-first or cloud-only approach when digitizing their business to take advantage of the agility, efficiency, and resilience that cloud technology promises...This IDC study assesses cloud security services vendors in the Asia/Pacific region on their strength of their current capabilities, portfolio, delivery, and go-to-market (GTM) activities and how well placed they are to grow within the space in the region.”

“The landscape of cyber threats is constantly evolving. To prepare clients for these risks, Deloitte firms advise, implement, and manage a comprehensive portfolio of cyber solutions and services to suit clients’ current industry sector requirements and enterprise-wide needs,” says James Nunn-Price, Asia Pacific Cyber Risk Services Leader, Deloitte Global Risk Advisory. “Business growth and cyber risk are inexorably linked, so Deloitte works to ensure that security is foundational to clients’ long-term growth strategies and digital transformations.”

On the vendor inclusion criteria, the report notes, “IDC narrowed down the field of players…and subsequently collected and analyzed data on these 14 cloud security services providers with relevant portfolios and regional scale.”
