Dramatic increases in vulnerabilities and threats coupled with growing compliance requirements have made security into one of the most challenging domains of IT management. How can enterprises and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) alike make the most of limited resources—particularly in a difficult economy—without sacrificing strategic business priorities? How can enterprises deliver security management at scale, from day one? How can the SMB access enterprise-class expertise, when they face the same level of threat as larger organizations, but have far fewer resources?
For many, the answers to these questions are increasingly found in security services. Four times more organizations plan to expand their use of Managed Security Services in the next 12 months than those who expect their use to decrease. 57% of those who use hosted security technology delivered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) expect their use of Security SaaS to grow in the coming year. Small- to medium-sized businesses in particular expect a significant increase in their use of Security SaaS by 5-to-1 over large enterprises.
In one of the most in-depth studies of security services to date among more than 200 organizations of all sizes worldwide, EMA explores these and other findings behind a growing trend of security outsourcing. Learn why those charting new territory in services such as Security SaaS see not only ample opportunity to transform the way today’s customers approach security management, but a chance to stake an early claim on security leadership for cloud computing as well.
