Thanks to a rash of high-profile security breaches, awareness of IT security issues has never been higher. However, securing an IT environment gets more complex with each passing day. Given those two factors, demand for managed security services should be escalating.
But a new survey from CompTIA suggests that solution providers across the channel are not tapping into that opportunity. In fact, the survey finds that only one in 10 of those surveyed are leading with their own security services brand rather than the brand of the security vendor. That doesn’t mean that channel partners are not offering security services. For example, a full 67 percent report offering risk management services, and another 61 percent say they have a mobile security service.
