SECaaS Is Where It’s At: Why Security-as-a-Service Is the Next Big Thing[securityintelligence]
by CIRT Team
In our personal lives, we consume a huge number of services on demand, from music and television to travel and food. As consumers, we expect to be able to access services monthly, paying only for what we need and leaving the complicated details, such as owning physical assets, upgrading software and making improvements, to the experts.
It makes sense that business leaders are beginning to adopt the same approach when it comes to security. Given the fact that the cloud-based security services market was forceast to grow by 21 percent in 2017 and is expected to reach almost $9 billion by 2020, it is clear that chief information security officers (CISOs) now want security delivered as a service.
SECaaS Marks the Spot
The security threat landscape is evolving rapidly, and when organizations are faced with a shape-shifting opponent, they don’t want to wait until their business case stacks up to update their security tools. To stay ahead of the threats, they need the most cutting-edge solutions available.
Security-as-a-service (SECaaS) makes the latest updates available instantly. Such offerings are also flexible, scaling to fit the consumer’s needs with the option to add or take away components as those needs change. This allows CISOs to be more reactive to the shifting security landscape and avoid waste in their limited budgets.
