Security as a Service (SECaaS)
Secure your business data and operations by outsourcing your cybersecurity.
Employing an in-house SOC team can be expensive and time-consuming, especially for a small or medium sized business. Instead, you can employ a Security as a Service provider to manage the daily running of your cyber security posture. This can be tailored towards your specific needs and easily scales as your business grows.
What does SECaaS do?
A SECaaS provider manages and monitors your organisation’s security systems remotely. This is run on a subscription basis and usually hosted by cloud providers. This model is becoming ever-more popular for businesses as an alternative to in-house IT security teams. Security as a service usually works in an overarching manner. It provides a centralised system whereby all your required security measures are managed in one place, by one SECaaS provider.
Examples of SECaaS:
- Managed Detection & Response (MDR)
- Security Information & Event Management (SIEM)
- Network Detection & Response (NDR)
- Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)
- Vulnerability scanning
- Intrusion detection
- Email protection
- Spoofing protection
- Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
- Network security
- Antivirus Management
- Spam Filtering
- Identity and Access Management (IAM)
- Intrusion Protection
- Continuous monitoring
