Securing Your SaaS Business
Organizations routinely cite cost savings as the most prominent and immediate benefit of cloud computing and SaaS-based software. SaaS and cloud services lower IT capital expenditures and operating costs, provide on-demand capacity and rapid scalability, and make available pay-per-use pricing models for greater flexibility and affordability.
Despite the clear economic benefits of using cloud services, however, concerns about security, compliance and data privacy continue to persist and can inhibit adoption of enterprise SaaS and cloud solutions. An IDC survey of IT executives reveals that security is the #1 challenge facing IT cloud services. In its paper, "Assessing the Security Risks of Cloud Computing," Gartner Research identified seven specific areas of security risk associated with enterprise cloud computing, and recommends addressing these key issues.
Application developers who consider these same issues when selecting a SaaS hosting provider can quickly overcome any concerns raised by their customers who are considering using a SaaS-based product.
