Why you should choose Software-as-a-Service security models

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), the best-known example of cloud computing, is a delivery model in which applications are hosted and managed in a service provider’s datacenter, paid for on a subscription basis and accessed via a browser over an internet connection.

SaaS applications are a natural fit for start-ups and small businesses. These are unlikely to be attracted by the prospect of setting up and managing on-premises infrastructure and applications.

This growth in the popularity of software-as-a-service is due to multiple benefits, including on-demand and scalable resources, easy upgrades and maintenance, and the fact that there are no infrastructure or staff costs.

They also do not need on-site IT staff to maintain and support the application.

Now, with the cloud these are all external services that you no longer need dedicated bodies to manage. So, expenditure is down, making it an extremely cost-effective and attractive model. Security is just another Software-as-a-Service, as it should be. So, if a business is selling cupcakes, that can now be their priority. Simple as.
