Much focus on securing data and systems in the
cloud.
What about providing security services FROM the
cloud?
That is Security as a Service (SecaaS)!
Provisioning elastic, scalable security solutions
and services to both cloud based and traditional
on premises systems in pure cloud or hybrid
models.
