Today, many service providers and midsize enterprises acknowledge that the traditional, product-centric security delivery model is ineffective due to three major trends:

  1. The increasingly sophisticated threat landscape
  2. The shortage of security expertise
  3. The complexity of managing security over a hybrid IT infrastructure.

The market is evolving to meet these challenges by introducing more simplified, flexible and cost-effective security. Security-as-a-service has emerged to deliver immediate value to service providers that are supporting mid-size enterprises.
