Firms 'could benefit from SaaS'

Date Added: 03/05/2011  

Small businesses may find they can make savings through software as a service (SaaS), according to a unified web, data and email content security provider.

Spencer Parker, group product manager at Websense, stated that most companies will find outsourcing their security to the cloud will be of benefit.

He explained that this is because SaaS providers have to take extra care to ensure the security of their customers is good enough, as any threat could become an issue for all of their clients.

"I don't think you'll ever get rid of desktop anti-virus software, but you could do it for millions of people simultaneously to make sure you're catching all of this stuff very quickly," Mr Parker said.

He was commenting shortly after the release of a report by research firm Forrester, which predicted SaaS is set to continue to rise over the coming years as more organisations adopt it.

It comes as firms increasingly look to the cloud as a way to save money on IT systems.
