Why Read This Report

As the market for software-as-a-service (SaaS) content security continues to mature, security and risk professionals want to know if it's time for their organization to make the transition to the cloud. In our analysis of the market, we found that the SaaS model addresses many challenges of on-premises content security solutions as well as budget and organizational challenges faced by the chief information security officer (CISO). As with any technology, there are obstacles to overcome, but the simplicity and scalability of the SaaS model will gradually shift the status quo. Forrester recommends that security and risk professionals develop their road map to SaaS-based solutions today.
