Matrix42, specialist for Digital Workspace Experience, presents a cloud-based data protection solution This complements the existing on-premise software with Security-as-a-Service from the Matrix42 Cloud. For customers, this step eliminates the need to implement the solution in their own network when securing their systems.
Benefits of the new Security-as-a-Service solution
With the new Security-as-a-Service solution, Matrix42 customers benefit from even faster implementation. The elimination of hardware procurement and maintenance leads to cost reductions and extremely high reliability. Partners and service providers can take advantage of this service and now offer additional services even faster and more flexibly than Managed Security Service and respond to customer needs.
The SaaS solution is now available in the Matrix42 Cloud. For comprehensive malware protection, it includes features such as multi-client support, https communication, role-based administration, customizable console layouts and multi-client license reporting for Managed Service Providers. Alternatively, these service providers can continue to host Matrix42's on-premise solution EgoSecure Data Protection in their own data center.
Relieving the burden on IT through Security-as-a-Service
According to Matrix42, security risks from smartphones, tablet PCs, notebooks, home office use and IoT have increased significantly. For this reason, it is important for IT security manufacturers to automate and network their solutions more and more. By shifting to the cloud, companies are relieving the burden on their IT resources.
"With the increasing threat of malware, security is a key challenge for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Cloud-based solutions significantly increase convenience and are therefore in increasing demand. We are responding to this trend with our new Security-as-a-Service solution," says Sergej Schlotthauer, VP Security at Matrix42.
According to experts, cloud first strategies are gaining more and more importance. The research and consulting company Gartner, for example, predicts that by 2022 the market for cloud services will grow almost three times as fast as the entire IT services sector. Matrix42 will take this development into account to an even greater extent in the future, and the Security-as-a-Service solution now presented is a further component of this development.
