This IDC study analyzes the total addressable market opportunities for consulting and integration in the professional security services (PSS) market, and it reflects our final 2014 market sizing and market projections to 2019. This study updates IDC's previous PSS forecast published in Worldwide and U.S. Professional Security Services 2013-2017 Forecast (IDC #241958, July 2013).

Christina Richmond, program director of Security Services at IDC, says, "The 'perfect storm' in security services - a barrage of threats, rapid IT transformation due to 3rd Platform effects, scarcity of budget and security talent, and compliance requirements - is causing PSS firms to lead with consulting and solutions instead of technology to help enterprises define and deploy a holistic security strategy. As a result, demand for worldwide professional security services, including consulting and integration services, will grow at a pace of 5.2% over the next five years."
