Practically every company is undergoing digital transformation, and for 91% of those companies, cybersecurity is their #1 barrier. It’s not surprising, given that for decades, companies have bolted security products onto their network. This has resulted in massive complexity and costs, and is hindering the ability for companies to keep ahead of rapidly evolving security threats and compliance requirements.
Security-as-a-service (SECaaS) allows enterprises to get the security they need without the typical complexity and costs associated with a product-centric security model, and it greatly reduces risk by enabling organizations to centrally manage security policy from a single cloud console.
SECaaS offers the following advantages over legacy network security approaches:
On-demand security from the cloud is faster than hardware deployments. Modernize your network including all end-user devices with security-as-a-service. Eliminate hardware configuration and maintenance delays across your WAN. SECaaS has been shown to reduce deployment time by 91% when compared to the time and logistics typically required to roll out traditional, legacy security tools.
The cloud empowers organizations, large and small, to more easily and rapidly facilitate less expensive remote-office activation and branch-to-Internet connections. In this cost-efficient environment, SECaaS enables organizations to receive advanced security capabilities previously accessible only to deep-pocket large enterprises, and to do so without myriad tool acquisition and maintenance costs.
Don’t compromise on security as you migrate some of your traffic off the private WAN and into the cloud. Conduct your WAN traffic with greater precision and quality of service, taking advantage of less-expensive and widely available network transports while orchestrating and automating advanced network security across distributed domains.
Hackers prey upon inconsistent security policy enforcement across today’s highly distributed network infrastructure. Think about how many users and endpoints a typical organization has. SECaaS enables the central enforcement of policy, which then automatically is applied throughout the entire distributed network, which strengthens protection and closes loopholes.
Automation and orchestration enable companies to simply and centrally manage their entire network and security infrastructure from a single cloud console. Configuration, alerts, continuous analytics and reporting, 24×7 support, and even billing are all tied into a SECaaS model.
The flexible, easy-to-scale SECaaS model deploys in minutes, not months, and delivers comprehensive, on-demand network security protection that can be consumed in the most affordable, flexible, and simple way.
