Deloitte named a Leader in Asia/Pacific Cloud Security Services by IDC MarketScape

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 14 December 2023 - Deloitte has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Cloud Security Services 2023-2024 Vendor Assessment for the second time.  

According to the IDC MarketScape study, “IDC defines cloud security services as a set of security offerings catered to provide security management capabilities to ensure 24 x 7 operations of cloud technologies and architectures, managed workloads and data in the cloud, as well as embedded professional security services.” 

“In the context of the [Asia/Pacific] region, organisations are becoming increasingly discerning in their expectations from [service providers],” according to the study. “This shift is driven by the ever-growing complexity of IT systems, broadened threat landscape, evolving regulatory demands and ongoing [digital transformation] shaping the future of business.”

“We are honoured to once again receive this distinction from IDC MarketScape,” says Ian Blatchford, Deloitte’s Cyber leader for Australia and the Asia Pacific region. “As organisations accelerate adoption of cloud technologies to modernise and transform their operations, Deloitte focuses on embedding security and resiliency at each step of a client’s cloud journey to help them to achieve business outcomes while also driving continuous innovation and improvement.”

The study states that “Deloitte's unique strength lies in its ability to seamlessly deliver solutions and services on a global scale while offering localised expertise through its diverse range of platforms and capabilities.” Further, “Customer feedback highlights that [Deloitte] employs a multifaceted defence strategy, which not only bolsters customers' security posture but also offers them a range of adaptable delivery and pricing choices.” 

“Deloitte has made significant investments in cyber and next-generation technologies as part of our evolution as an engineering-led, technical implementation and operate managed services business, backed by deep strategy, assessment and design capabilities,” adds Blatchford. Notable highlights of investments from the past year - including through co-innovation with Deloitte’s ecosystem of alliances and relationships across hyperscalers and leading software and solution providers - are:

  • Expansion of cyber threat detection and response and identity security capabilities through globally scaling Cyber Operate managed services with SaaS-based modular solutions - MXDR by Deloitte and Digital Identity by Deloitte
  • Launch of ConvergeSECURITY, an integrated, end-to-end cloud security and compliance solution
  • Acquisition of ParaFlare, an Australia-based 24 x 7 managed detection and response (MDR) provider with sovereign cloud security capabilities for national security and critical infrastructure clients 
  • Portfolio of team hire transactions in Asia Pacific to provide clients access to specialised cyber skills, such as a China-based team of connected vehicle specialists, multiple Australia-based teams supporting national defence, security and justice agencies and several cyber engineering and architecture teams
