Security-as-a-Service

Comprehensive network security integrated into low-latency networking - just turn it on.

What’s the key to effective IT security? Consistency and control. From access policies to intrusion detection, effective security relies on consistent application of the same rules across device, user and network. The problem? With a marked increase of remote employees, combined with the surge of cloud, mobile, and IoT, there’s a gap between what IT teams need to accomplish for effective IT security and what they can actually enforce using current methodology. The solution? Security-as-a-service.

Security as a Service Basics

Security-as-a-service is taking the market by storm. Just two years ago, only 5 percent of large enterprises tapped cloud providers for their security services — by 2020, that number will reach 85 percent. This security-from-the-cloud evolution stems from a constantly changing and increasingly complex information security marketplace.

Yet what exactly is security-as-a-service? While many companies are familiar with managed security services, security-as-a-service is not that. With managed security services, IT teams outsource some or all of their information security management to trusted third parties. With security-as-a-service, instead of divvying up your security requirements among multiple providers and your own IT team, it empowers you with a cloud-based platform to simplify and centralize security management. By a ratio of 8:2, IT security executives indicated they would use a security-as-a-service solution over an MSSP .
