Ovum to Expand Cybersecurity Research Under New Omdia Group

Informa Tech combines Ovum, Heavy Reading, Tractica, and IHS Markit research.

Renowned IT market research firm Ovum plans to expand its cybersecurity coverage under a newly formed tech research organization that combines Ovum, Heavy Reading, Tractica, and IHS Markit.

Omdia — which is part of research, media, training, and events firm Informa Tech (Dark Reading's parent company) — officially launches on February 20 and integrates the operations of all four research houses, which include more than 400 analysts and consultants in some 150 technology markets.

The combination of Ovum and IHS Markit pairs the traditionally qualitative research expertise of Ovum with the quantitative resources of IHS Markit, says Maxine Holt, research director with Omdia and formerly of Ovum.

"We're combining the resources of IHS Markit's cybersecurity research, which includes threat mitigation and a whole range" of security topics, including Internet of Things (IoT) security, she says.

Holt says among the main areas Omdia's cybersecurity practice will encompass are infrastructure security (next-gen firewalls, unified threat management, advanced threat protection); security operations including SIEM and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR); identity and authentication; and data security and privacy, including encryption.

Security topics — such as industrial IoT, cloud security, and managed security services — touch all of those areas as well. "We're expanding the buckets of our research so clients can take a cross-section" of the content as well, she says.  

Omdia last week published a report on 5G that includes a look at cybersecurity issues.
