NEW YORK, NY, USA, 12 March 2020—International Data Corporation (IDC) has named Deloitte a leader in the report entitled, IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Professional Security Services (PSS) 2020 Vendor Assessment (Doc # AP45547920, February 2020). The IDC MarketScape recognizes Deloitte as a leader based on capabilities and strategies.

"Deloitte has demonstrated a comprehensive portfolio and solid capabilities in addressing clients’ both strategic and tactical needs when it comes to professional security services requirements", says Cathy Huang, Associate Research Director, Services and Security, IDC Asia/Pacific (APAC), at IDC and an author of the report.

"It is great for Deloitte to get this recognition from the IDC MarketScape, which considers not just our customer feedback but also that of our peers," says James Nunn-Price, Deloitte Asia Pacific Cyber Risk leader. "We continue to invest in building the leading cyber capability in Asia Pacific and globally, for today and for the future so that we can continue to help our clients succeed."

The IDC MarketScape is as an assessment of "17 different vendors offering professional security services in the highly competitive and vibrant Asia/Pacific (APAC) market. The participating organizations were meticulously evaluated using the IDC MarketScape model, which reviews the vendors' capabilities and strategies against an extensive list of scoring criteria and parameters."

"Cyber is everywhere. As business and society relies more on digital, IoT, cloud and AI for the delivery of services and improved customer experience such as banking, health care, smart grids, and driverless vehicles to name a few, success starts and ends with managing cyber risk," adds Nunn-Price. "We operate at the intersection of business, regulation and deep technology understanding so that we can help our clients holistically so they can go anywhere."
