This IDC study highlights the new normal of security as a service. A rise of new entrants and ecosystem partners and expansion of offerings by the cloud service providers, managed security service providers (MSSPs), and their marketplace vendors taking on common vulnerabilities and exposures along with the advanced persistent threats of nation-states led us to focus on four key themes: context-rich visibility, shift left/shift right, zero trust access, and talent gap."The dramatic rise in ransomware as a service (RaaS) and supply chain attacks unfolds against a backdrop of a challenging cybersecurity talent gap, multicloud security policies that vary with their associated shared responsibility model (SRM), and cyberinsurance products that ebb and flow with the broader industry outlook. As 'necessity is the mother of all invention,' the current global cybersecurity paradox of complexity and security is met by the accelerated rise to a digital-first world led by 'shift left/shift right' approaches and tools, context-rich visibility, zero trust access, and the talent gap." -- Phil Bues, research manager, Cloud Security, IDC
