As multiple industry experts are predicting 200-300% increase in SMB breach incidences, security-as-a-service (SECaaS) will be the biggest value added “service innovation” in 2015, predicts Indusface, a leading provider of application security solutions for web and mobile applications.
The vendors will have to offer more customizable, flexible and cost effective solutions, says the company.
In its recently released security predictions for 2015, Indusface emphasised the need for fully managed integrated security solutions that can effectively monitor and detect online vulnerabilities and defend against them anytime, anywhere.
This year many security breaches have been witnessed. The major attacks were from Heartbleed, Bash, Poodle and Drupal core SQL injection vulnerabilities. “Such attacks have to be prevented or fixed immediately through a proactive defense mechanism,” said the company in its report.
Ashish Tandon, Chairman and CEO, Indusface said, “When thinking about IT as a whole, and security specifically, ‘as-a-service’ models will enable SMBs and large enterprises to protect their web assets. It’s difficult to keep updating your security posture, unless you have experts to take care of them.”
According to industry estimates, about 300,000 website owners have not been able to fix Heartbleed attack.
Tandon said, “Using generic security solutions can only help perform periodic checks which are proving insufficient in the present security landscape.”
