Why is Security-as-a-Service Important to Your Business

Security as a Service (SECaaS) is important to businesses for mainly 2 reasons:

  1. Data Protection: With increased digital transformation, sensitive data is more prevalent online. SECaaS shields this data from breaches, ensuring customer trust and regulatory compliance.

  2. Risk Mitigation: SECaaS offers continuous protection against evolving cyber threats, helping to prevent financial losses, reputational harm, and legal issues due to breaches.

There are 3 main elements in a Security-as-a-Service. DDoS Protection, Advanced Threat Preventions & Next Generation Firewall.

What is DDoS Protection?

DDoS is a set of strategies or tools used to resist or mitigate the impact of DDoS attacks. DDoS protection can take several forms:

  1. Volume Based Protection: This combats attacks overloading site bandwidth by using rate limiting to cap server requests.

  2. Protocol Protection: This defends against attacks consuming server resources or exploiting protocol stack weaknesses, often by dropping suspicious connections or using firewalls.

  3. Application Layer Protection: This safeguards against attacks on web application packets. Techniques include filtering traffic to distinguish human from bot traffic, and defining rules to manage incoming traffic.

What is Advanced Threat Prevention?

Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) is a comprehensive approach to security management aimed at detecting, preventing, and responding to sophisticated and evolving cyber threats.

ATP incorporates a range of techniques and tools:

  1. Threat Intelligence: This entails gathering, analyzing, and disseminating information on potential or current threats. It helps organizations understand and counter threat actors’ tactics, techniques, and procedures.

  2. Sandboxing: This process runs applications in an isolated ‘sandbox’ to observe behavior and identify potential threats. Suspicious programs are prevented from launching in the main system.

  3. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): This continuously monitors and analyses data from network-connected devices. Upon detecting a threat, the system automatically isolates the affected endpoint to halt spread.

A Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is a part of the third generation of firewall technology, combining a traditional firewall with other network device filtering functionalities.

Here are some key features of NGFW:

  1. Application Awareness: Unlike traditional firewalls that control traffic based on port and protocol, NGFWs regulate traffic according to the application or data content, enabling them to block specific applications and halt application-based threats.
  2. Integrated IPS: NGFWs incorporate intrusion prevention systems to identify and neutralize potential threats instantly.

  3. Advanced Threat Detection: NGFWs utilize techniques like sandboxing and threat intelligence feeds to detect persistent and advanced threats.
