Security-as-a-Service in the Carrier Cloud:
CSPs and the SMB Opportunity


Authored by Jim Hodges, Principal Analyst, Heavy Reading

SMBs are highly vulnerable to cyberattacks given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise. CSPs offering security services through the carrier cloud reap bottom-line benefits while addressing an underserved market sector with a highly cost-effective, easy-to-deploy and manage solution.

This white paper explains why a cloud-based security-as-a-service (SECSaaS) is the best approach for CSPs to meet the needs of the SMB segment. Additionally, it examines the business opportunities available to service providers and the technical considerations required to create a cohesive and viable security services delivery model.
