Antivirus products require too much time and effort for small and mid-sized companies. Once they buy the antivirus, they then have to invest time and effort in:
Additional hardware - such as servers - to host a centralized console with the corresponding services and databases.
Additional supporting software licenses (database software, etc.) to run protection reports or configuration tasks.
Additional security-skilled personnel to manage and control protection who are not focused on the core business. Many SMBs do not want these hassles because all these tasks distract them from their core business.
To deal with this situation, small and mid-sized businesses usually have very limited resources and a very tight budget.
The best alternative available to these businesses begins with hosting their security solutions on an external hardware infrastructure, reducing operating costs and the total cost of ownership.
Now you can focus on your core business, switch from Antivirus to Security as a Service and start enjoying the benefits of SaaS.
