What is Security-as-a-Service?

Security-as-a-service is a business model in which a vendor (e.g., Armor) provides security services on a subscription basis. Many organizations choose “as-a-service” platforms because the cost of building their own infrastructure is prohibitive and the expertise needed to manage it is difficult to find, hard to keep and expensive.

Security-as-a-service providers have stepped in to help organizations protect their networks, cost-effectively and reliably. Instead of playing "whack-a-hack" by purchasing new tools and spending countless hours trying to hire and retain top talent, security-as-a-service gives you the freedom to focus on your business, while placing cybersecurity in expert hands.

Armor not only provides cost savings around the tools necessary to secure your environment, but it places you under the protection of Armor’s Security Operations Center that keeps watch over your systems 24/7/365. Armor provides world-class security-as-a-service for more than 1,000 organizations—from picking and deploying the right tools to incident response  and remediation, Armor’s got your security-as-a-service covered.
