SaaS has been a successful deployment option for many customers within the talent management market. But it is important to look at vendors' SaaS offerings to ensure organization is receiving strong security for HR data. Because the costs of a data breach are very high ($6.6 million and rising), any short-term cost savings with an inadequately secured SaaS offering are quickly erased if HR data is compromised. In addition, understanding the indirect costs that can come with a standard SaaS offering are important as well. These include items like having a forced upgrade policy or having restrictions on configurations within a standard SaaS deployment.
