- Business Outcomes
Security as a service (SECaaS) is a method of delivering security technologies, which are typically found in enterprise data centres or regional gateways, via the cloud.
SECaaS has become a key business enabler in the growing cloud and mobile world because it enables secure access to apps and services regardless of where they are hosted or when users connect. It's no longer possible to tether security to the data centre with cloud-based apps and users connected from all over the world.
Whether your users are connecting to the network at your headquarters office, a coffee shop, or an airport's Wi-Fi, they all demand the same level of security and data protection. Your corporate policies follow users wherever they connect with a cloud service. All connections are reviewed and secured, regardless of who is making them, what app they use, or the level of encryption.
An enterprise gains extraordinary visibility into all of its traffic, what apps are in use, whether any machines are compromised, threats and policy violations are stopped, and much more with cloud security.
A centralised view of all activities across services firewall, sandbox, secure web gateway, enhanced threat protection, data loss prevention, bandwidth control, and more is provided by an integrated cloud solution. It also allows you to reduce the attack surface created by exposing IP addresses through VPNs and firewalls.
Finally, security as a service plugs the security holes left by off-net users and those who connect directly to cloud apps and the open internet. Attackers are increasingly targeting mobile users and leveraging mobile devices to attack enterprise systems as they know outdated data centre security can't protect these users who connect to the internet through public Wi-Fi networks to use cloud and mobile apps and send and receive email. You're leaving your entire network susceptible to attack if you can't safeguard every link.
Security as a Service (SECaaS) has a number of justifiable advantages for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). SMBs may not have the financial resources to invest in the security hardware, software, and personnel needed to meet today's ever-increasing security standards.
