Atos named European Leader in Managed Security Services by IDC MarketScape


Paris, April 13, 2022 – Atos today announces its nomination in the “Leaders” category of the IDC MarketScape assessment: assessment of managed security service (MSS) providers in Western Europe. This positioning illustrates the strength and relevance of Atos cybersecurity solutions and their deeply European DNA, as well as its ability to integrate local specificities into its approach.

With more than 6,000 experts within the Group, an accelerated innovation process, dynamic partnerships and regular acquisitions, Atos continues to strengthen its capabilities in cybersecurity.

The IDC MarketScape report mentions: “Atos currently operates 4 security operations centers (Security Operations Centers, SOCs) worldwide, of which 2 are in Europe (Poland, Romania). In addition, Atos has 5 regional SOCs in Europe which together constitute a significant portion of the company’s 15 SOCs worldwide. All SOCs are running continuously.” Since the publication of the evaluation, Atos opened a 16th SOC in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Atos develops solutions that evolve from MSS to a managed detection and response service (Managed Detection and Response, MDR), an advanced AI-based service that provides key threat intelligence, threat detection and hunting solutions, incident analysis and incident response.

According to IDC MarketScape, “Atos offers a unified view of IT, IoT and OT solutions, compelling IT/OT convergence capabilities, while leveraging a long-standing strategic digital alliance with Siemens”.

“The MSS market is growing in Europe. Businesses of all sizes are looking to manage and control their data security and privacy needs – all amid sweeping changes brought on by the pandemic, facing an increase in the volume and sophistication of cyberattacks . Atos has a strong presence in cybersecurity services in Europe, thanks to its strong European history. The Group can differentiate its MSS offering through its own security products, the use of advanced analytics and its specialization in sector markets”declares Claudio Stahnke, Senior Research Analyst at IDC.

“We are proud to be recognized by IDC MarketScape for our leadership position in MSS in Europe. We are convinced that this recognition validates our strategy of continuous development in cybersecurity: our ability to provide our customers with the most effective turnkey cybersecurity service, adapted to their sector of activity and their geography, while ensuring data sovereignty when necessary. Atos’ European Security Operations Centers not only provide detailed, region-specific security information, but also meet European customers’ residency and security operations data transfer needs.” , declared Chris Moret, SVP, Global Head of Cybersecurity Services at Atos.

Atos has recently strengthened its MDR portfolio with the launch of the first carbon neutral MDRof a new “sovereign data” version of its MDRand a MDR dedicated to the media industry.
