BT moves from Major Player into the Leaders Category in the IDC MarketScape report: Global Managed Security Services Vendor Assessment.

This report highlights the key strengths of our security portfolio. It calls out our capacity to seamlessly integrate a broad range of managed services with a customer's BT-provided WAN, LAN and data centre solutions.

The report also highlights the fact that “an extensive network gives BT the insight into attacks so that BT can watch, learn, predict, and respond to the latest threats.”
