Why web security is best served in the cloud – Move protection to where the threats are
With the web becoming the prime method of attack as other vectors are closed through security solutions, organisations are increasingly looking to beef up their security controls for web threats. But for many resource-strapped organisations looking to do more with less, managing and in-house deployment can prove to be too great a challenge. For many, subscribing to cloud-based web security services is a more viable option and can provide better security than reactive in-house software and appliances as they can ensure that protection is provided even against the latest, most sophisticated and previously unseen threats through use of advanced detections techniques and technologies applied in the cloud. Such services are useful for organisations of all sizes and in every industry, even those that are highly regulated.
