Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology yet major breaches and compromises are more
prevalent than ever. The concept of “layered security” in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers doesn’t seem to be working. It’s time to rethink IT security not just the technology, but the way it’s approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.
SaaS applications continue to provide a tremendous value to end users with easy setup and collaboration capabilities that are changing the way organizations do business. The concern over the loss of data leaving the corporate network and opening the network to external threats through unknown collaborators has caused many organizations to take a "wait and see" approach to SaaS. Microsoft® Office 365™ changes all that.
A new survey commissioned by Palo Alto Networks and
conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group explores why enterprise
IT leaders are embracing CASB products, where they are using
them, and what capabilities are most important to them.
To learn more about how SaaS is helping companies gain competitive advantage as opposed to simply reducing costs, we segmented survey respondents into three groups:
• Pacesetters, who have the highest level of SaaS adoption and are gaining competitive advantage through their broad efforts
• Challengers, who have adopted SaaS more narrowly but are gaining competitive advantage through the SaaS deployments they do have
• Chasers, who have been slower to adopt SaaS and gain competitive advantage through its use

Using PaaS to build and extend the functionality of cloud software products (SaaS) means that you:
- No longer have the cost of maintaining hardware and / or a data center (especially if it is not being utilized 100% of the time) \ lowering costs and expanding resources
- Can set up development environments quickly and easily, boosting speed, innovation and agility
- Save time, improving speed and agility and reducing time to market
- Only pay for what you use, further reducing costs and increasing flexibility
…which, in turn, will provide faster time-to-value.
The all-encompassing data center is a thing of the past. Modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and
the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as cloud solutions such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
There’s more critical data to back up than ever before. Plus, data silos and fragmented management mean poor visibility, which can make it difficult to comply
with regional data residency and security rules as well as service-level agreements (SLAs).
On-premises data protection has not kept pace. According to a survey by Fujitsu, 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data
protection inefficiency within the last year.1
Often, this is because on-premises backups are cumbersome and do not always happen on time.

SaaS has fundamentally changed security requirements. We used to just go into work, and everything—corporate applications, sensitive customer data, employee health records, etc.—was within the “safe” four walls of the corporate network behind a firewall.
Now employees work remotely and use mobile devices, including unmanaged, personal devices. They access SaaS apps that live in the cloud without any sort of firewall that IT can use to monitor and manage access. Prominent examples include Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Office 365, Box, and many others.
As employees use these SaaS apps, they are creating proprietary company data, often confidential in nature, that exists outside the control of IT, creating new challenges for security teams.
In this new world, IT needs to track sensitive corporate data in third-party SaaS apps, and ensure that only the right people have the right level of access to it. In this whitepaper, we’ll explain ten steps on how to do that
"The way we work has changed. More users are working remotely, satellite offices are connecting directly to the internet, and SaaS app usage is on the rise. How can your security technology keep up with all of these changes?
A new category of products is emerging - the secure internet gateway. Built to solve the security challenges of today's mobile, cloud-enabled enterprise, the secure internet gateway is a critical component to securing today’s workforce. View the infographic to understand the five primary reasons for the rise of this category.
As a secure internet gateway, Cisco Umbrella helps you tackle the challenges of mobility, SaaS, and branch transformation by offering a single platform that secures access to and use of the cloud, SaaS applications, branch offices, and endpoints.
It's your first line of defense against threats -- anytime and anywhere your users access the internet, traffic goes through Umbrella first.
To understand how a secure internet gateway provides 360-degree security for access to and use of the cloud, read the ebook.
VMware Horizon® support for published applications provides exciting new opportunities for customers running Citrix XenApp. Tightly integrated with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), VMware Horizon is a new option for delivering not just published applications and shared desktops, but also virtual desktops, software as a service (SaaS), and virtualized applications to the devices your end users want to use.
This white paper provides guidance for planning and undertaking a migration from Citrix XenApp to VMware Horizon. Four approaches to XenApp migration are detailed, including the major steps required for their implementation. Whether the goal is to migrate an existing XenApp infrastructure to Horizon, replace it with a new system, or simply integrate legacy Citrix infrastructure with your Horizon virtual desktop deployment, VMware has the innovative products and technology you need.
Cloud-based archives offer the cost savings, ease of use, and scalability of the cloud coupled with best-of-breed security from a trusted provider for defensibly handling high-risk enterprise data. Download this whitepaper to find out more now!
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
Watch this two-minute video to reveal three key strategies that many companies, including 15 of the 20 most profitable Fortune 100 companies, are employing to realize even more savings from their procurement process.
An organization that excels at automating, standardizing and monitoring its systems and access controls can comply not only with PCI DSS, but with many other state and federal regulations that have similar mandates. Download this paper to learn more.

The ITMaaS segment is a part of the broader SaaS world. However, the adoption drivers and emerging market characteristics of the segment mimic those of IaaS and PaaS to a greater degree than the enterprise SaaS market.
