Software-as-a-Service Web Security - Why Switch?
This paper will define SaaS Web Security and the way that these services are delivered and also assess the current Internet threat landscape. It is necessary to cover these areas in order to understand why the typical Web security infrastructure has grown so much in recent years and why the case for a switch to SaaS Web Security has therefore become increasingly compelling. In addition to exploring the internal reasons that organizations are turning to SaaS Web Security, this paper will also discuss how factors external to individual organizations are driving the take-up. The common barriers to the adoption of SaaS will be covered along with a discussion on how these barriers are becoming less and less significant.
