Why the democratization of cybersecurity is long overdue and how CSaaS is turning the industry standard on its head

Cyber ​​security services have been skewed in favor of the big fish. Large companies have all the resources, the budget, and the willingness to work with multiple and complex products that require integration and orchestration.

The one-size-fits-all model typically includes everything the industry offers, much of which is unlikely to be required by small and medium-sized businesses. On top of that, SMBs have different security requirements with limited budget and no in-house security expertise. Fortunately, cybersecurity as a service challenges the traditional approach to cybersecurity by making it affordable, accessible and fully managed. It empowers the customer to personalize and afford cybersecurity services, regardless of size or budget.

What are the challenges of the existing cybersecurity model?

One size is usually the only size available and is too big to fit most businesses. Many organizations invest in and buy a plethora of tools just to keep them on the shelves and never use them, while others cannot afford such expensive tools and the people to manage them.

The existing model poses the following challenges:

  • Technological costs purchasing tools for safety management
  • People costs in the form of security management; security incident response teams, security and infrastructure engineers, and cybersecurity analysts
  • Commercial costs such as legal, maintenance, recruiting and operating costs
  • Assessment costs such as discovery, counseling, penetration testing and gap analysis

These high costs, along with the inability to let people choose the security services they want for their organization, precisely tailored to their business needs, call for a better and more democratic way of delivering cybersecurity.

The cloud made it possible

The cloud has opened up a more transparent and democratic way to access services. There are already cloud services for software in the form of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), however, the democratization of cybersecurity was long overdue.

It’s time to use the cloud to make cybersecurity more accessible and affordable for all businesses.

This is where Cyber ​​Security as a Service (CSaaS) comes in, bringing with it game-changing freedom and flexibility.

Imagine having all the best cybersecurity tools on the market at your disposal and you can choose which one you want to use and for how long, without worrying about the skilled workforce dedicated in-house to take care of the integration. and orchestration. This is the superpower that the CSaaS holds; automate and democratize security.

With the pay-as-you-go model, customers have the flexibility to upgrade / downgrade their cybersecurity without worrying about the high installation costs and overhead to maintain a robust IT department. This gives SMBs the ability to access higher levels of security than they would have outside of the cloud environment.

Five key improvements with CSaaS

  1. Integration of various tools

Buying all of your own safety tools is like buying vegetables at the market. If you can’t put all the ingredients together and use them in the right ratio to cook great food, there’s no point in buying them in the first place. Likewise, the integration of security tools is essential to implement effective cybersecurity.

  1. Troubleshooting orchestration issues

Businesses can’t manage everything manually. In fact, they don’t have to. It is ineffective. Automating the configuration and management of these services makes it easy for you.

  1. Improve business uptime

Automated security services have their advantages. They ensure that a company’s online presence is protected 24/7 with continuous monitoring and proactive remediation.

  1. Suitable for all size companies; and any size budget

The cloud invites businesses of all sizes to afford and implement cybersecurity effectively and efficiently.

  1. Monthly / yearly subscription service with an option to cancel at any time

SMEs have budget constraints and are always looking for a compromise between budget and security. With its subscription model, CSaaS gives businesses the freedom to select the services they need and pay only for what they use. Users can always cancel their subscription at any time.
