Category 2: Software as a service

Overview: SaaS providers offer ready-to-use business applications that are available on demand and can scale.

Risk: SaaS providers handle sensitive business information, but your company is still ultimately responsible for its data and should perform due diligence on the SaaS providers. With SaaS, we see common routes to data theft through:

  1. Attackers exploiting weak or poorly managed SaaS authentication mechanisms to gain access to user accounts.
  2. Weaknesses in application functionality that allow intruders to gain a foothold or extract data.
  3. Vulnerabilities of infrastructure that can be exploited.

Businesses are nothing less than addicted to the speed and flexibility of using cloud-based software and infrastructure. However, there's persistent confusion about what cloud security technologies businesses need, and the risks those technologies mitigate.

In this slideshow, Carson Sweet, CEO and co-founder of CloudPassage, highlights a categorical review of cloud security needs associated with the use of public infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS) and governance of cloud services. This slideshow will help users navigate what cloud security technologies apply to their businesses.
