Preventing Cyber-attacks: SaaS Security Posture Management
SaaS Security Posture Management is a set of services designed to reduce the risk and cost associated with information security.
I’m sure you’ve experienced it before: your company’s sensitive data becomes compromised when hackers penetrate their system, steal customer records or email correspondence, and subsequently post it all on the internet.
In this day and age, security breaches are unfortunately commonplace. In fact, according to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute , the average cost of cyber-attacks at a company is $12 million per year. While some companies recover from one breach eventually, many other companies go bankrupt due to a single attack.
Compliance is a common factor among those who suffer an attack—in fact, 92% of their data was unprotected or inadequately protected because they didn’t follow industry standards. The same study also showed that only 40% of organizations have measures in place to prevent damage from these attacks, meaning that 60% do not.
The benefits of SaaS security posture management are many
If you have a need for better monitoring and more efficient data protection, then this product could be what your organization needs!
- It allows organizations to reduce costs by providing necessary services in one place through subscription-based access with flexible payment options that fit most budgets including monthly or annually contracts
- The platform tracks everything from employee behavior on web browsers all the way down into individual files downloaded onto someone’s system; giving managers unprecedented insight into how employees use their time at work (and when they’re not).
- With the constant battle of firefighting and forward-thinking, LinkedIn sales reps can now focus on their day job: Selling.

- This service has been around since 2011, but I believe it’s just recently gaining some steam due to its ability to handle such high volumes of queries through the API.
- The blockchain is an immutable distributed ledger technology that can be used beyond cryptocurrency applications such as securing transactions, exchanges of value/assets/digital information.
- Big data refers to data sets so large or complex that traditional data-processing application programs cannot deal with them. This means we typically need more than one type of programming paradigm such as batch processing, real-time reporting and streaming protocols. Due to the high volume of data available today, some combination of these approaches is usually needed to meet business requirements. We cannot do all this using just one approach due to limitations on processing speed and scale.
When an enterprise wants to take the cloud approach, they need a CASB. This will act as their security front door into both on-premise and third party clouds while providing protection against threats that are uniquely found in this environment – like data breaches or malicious insiders who want access for personal gain instead of company assets (think: ransomware).
