When asked about possible secure cloud solutions, over 90% of surveyed tech executives said their current Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions don’t meet their organization’s updated security requirements.
The huge rise in cyber-theft, ransomware, and extortionware attacks, and the risk of privacy law non-compliance, have focused Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) on infrastructure and data security for their most sensitive files, including intellectual property (IP) and personally identifiable information (PII).
Cloud-based SaaS solutions have become the obvious route to cloud adoption for many companies, but 96.5% of survey respondents agreed their teams would require more customization capability of cloud platform security protocols to meet their updated individual corporate needs.
In fact, most SaaS cloud solutions are usually designed to be the “lowest-common-denominator” set of features and benefits to ensure the largest possible customer base. Based on the survey results, however, SaaS “one-size-fits-all” feature/functionality platform architectures will not offer the security customization capability required by the respondents.
If SaaS platforms cannot offer the required data security safeguards CISOs require, what cloud solution can? The answer is clear: a Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud solution provides customers with the additional security protocols and customization capabilities required to satisfy security professionals. New capabilities address key requirements such as role-based access controls, zero-trust architectures, the ability to create and manage their own encryption keys, on-premises encryption key storage, field-level encryption, and immutable storage for ransomware/extortionware protection.
The Archive360 enterprise information management, governance, and archiving platform is trusted by Wall Street banks, global businesses, and the largest Federal and regional government agencies worldwide to bring security, control, context, governance and compliance, cost controls, and the ability to customize individual platform preferences to digital transformation and cloud adoption. This is achieved through secure onboarding, data classification, easy employee access, retention/disposition, legal eDiscovery and FOIA response, and data management, including structured and unstructured data, audio/video, and emails.
