Security as a Service
The security threat landscape is evolving rapidly, and when organizations are faced with a shape-shifting opponent, they don’t want to wait until their business case stacks up to update their security tools. To stay ahead of the threats, they need the most cutting-edge solutions available.
Security-as-a-service (SECaaS) makes the latest updates available instantly. Such offerings are also flexible, scaling to fit the consumer’s needs with the option to add or take away components as those needs change. This allows CISOs to be more reactive to the shifting security landscape and avoid waste in their limited budgets.
Dedicated Cybersecurity Expertise Combined with Advanced Threat Intelligence
Do you have the budget, skills or resources to have inhouse experts devoted solely to cybersecurity?
You may have employees who handle cybersecurity along with other general IT responsibilities, but that’s
Through no fault of your own, you’re unprepared to protect against and remediate these cyber
If you’re attacked, you won’t be ready.

Cyber Attacks are on the Rise and are Incredibly Expensive
Malware and web-based cyber attacks are the most popular forms that are growing in their complexity and method of delivery.
In 2015 companies saw an average of 160 successful cyber attacks per week, more than three times the 2010 average of 50 per week (The Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Cyber Crime Report).
Malware includes viruses, worms, Trojans, ransomware, spyware, adware, etc. and is primarily installed via phishing schemes. When employees click rogue links or open malicious attachments, they unknowingly give hackers remote access to infect their systems.
One wrong move and sensitive company data or personally identifiable information, such as your social security number, could become encrypted and/or stolen.
Ransomware is the malware of choice now. You may have heard of CryptoLocker, CryptoWall and now Locky, malicious software that locks you out of your files and demands ransom
Data Security Now Requires Consistent, Vigilant Monitoring and Maintenance
With all of the various threats to your company’s data and factoring in the impact of exploited network or system vulnerabilities, you simply don’t have the time to do what it takes to keep your business secure.
IT security must continually be revisited. How much time would you say you’ve spent working on cybersecurity issues in the last six months? Are you staying up-to-date with cybersecurity threats?
If you don’t have someone constantly and actively monitoring your network, you may not detect any issues until it’s too late. What if you didn’t know you were hit with ransomware until after the ransom payment window closed, and you couldn’t access any of your files?
The average time to detect malware or criminal attack is 170 days (Heimdal Security).
