Why SaaS Security Needs to Receive Constant Attention

Lured by the promise of lower operating costs and improved flexibility, many businesses are continuing to increase their usage of software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.

Designed to provide support to almost every function within a business, SaaS platforms remove the need for cumbersome, on-premise infrastructure. Delivered from the cloud, they can be quickly configured and scaled to match changes in demand.

However, while they offer enticing benefits, SaaS platforms can also result in some significant security challenges. With resources now housed outside the traditional corporate firewall, new methods must be found to ensure they remain resilient to attack or misuse.
