This study presents vendor shares in 2019 after classifying the Japan IT security products market into external threat analysis and protection products market consisting of consumer and enterprise endpoint security market, messaging security market, web content inspection market, and network security market; and internal threat analysis and protection products market consisting of identity and digital trust market and security analytics, intelligence, response, orchestration (AIRO) market. As the migration to cloud environment progresses, there will be more opportunities to use cloud services directly through the internet rather than through the internal network. In particular, the spread of remote work due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus infectious disease (COVID-19) increases the use of cloud services via the internet. When using cloud services via the internet line, even regular employees try to access IT assets via the internet line that IT system departments cannot monitor or manage, just like security criminals. The so-called security measures that are based on the belief that human nature is fundamentally evil are necessary, and a wide range of measures, such as endpoint security for access devices, access control to cloud applications, activity monitoring, policy management, and information leakage measures are required. Consequently, security measures grow more complicated. "IT suppliers should work with product vendors, service providers, and systems integrators to develop and provide, as well as to accelerate the adoption of security solutions that consolidate functionality and management. Doing so will enable interoperation between integrated systems, reduce operational load, and at the same time, provide immediate action," says Tsuneo Tosaka, software and security research manager, IDC Japan.
