Cybersecurity company Secureworks has been named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia-Pacific threat lifecycle services 2018 vendor assessment.

The IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market.

IDC MarketScape provides a framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared.

The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.
