Remote Secure Access

IT Security

The Threat

The threat landscape is rapidly becoming more sophisticated and complex, as new threats emerge daily, even hourly. For many businesses, keeping security up to date is a never-ending cycle; as soon as one patch is deployed, another threat emerges.

To add to these risks, more employees are taking part in Web 2.0 activities like social networking and blogging, exposing the corporate network to potential threats.

Fact: 82% of SMBs experienced problems with spyware, viruses, worms, phishing, hacking, or compromised Web sites in 2009.

How SaaS Solves the Problems of On-Premise Security

Businesses traditionally invest in security software, hardware and appliances in order to prevent specific problems: malware infections, security breaches, spam, data loss, non-compliance and legal liability. Unfortunately, these on-premise "solutions" bring problems of their own. They drain IT resources and budgets. They produce single points of failure. They are difficult to scale when business needs change, and their limited life-cycles create high and unpredictable expenses.

Security Software as a Service (SaaS) is a sustainable security approach that solves these problems today - and meets your business needs for tomorrow.

The SaaS model is cost-effective, manageable and flexible. Most importantly, Security SaaS provides better protection by blocking threats in the cloud, away from your network. There are no software or hardware purchases, no single-point-of-failure risks, and no unexpected outages and replacements. Service Level Agreements (SLAs) guarantee top quality performance and availability, so you can rest assured you have the highest level of protection.
