SaaS applications are the darlings of the software world. They enable work from anywhere, facilitate collaboration, and offer a cost-effective alternative to owning the software outright. At the same time, the very features that make SaaS apps so embraced – access from anywhere and collaboration – can also be exploited by threat actors.
Recently, Adaptive Shield commissioned a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study conducted by Forrester Consulting. The study demonstrates the impactful ROI achieved by a multimedia company with an annual revenue of $10 billion. While the quantitative ROI is significant, at 201%, the qualitative security ROI improvements were substantial.
