As Cyber Attacks Grow, Data Center Operators Can Bring Value-Added Services to Enterprises Leveraging Cloud-Based Access Management Services

No threat facing businesses today has grown as fast, or in a manner as difficult to understand, as the danger from cyberattacks. Cyber threats are increasing in both volume and sophistication, and as the world continues to become more digital with every passing day, cyber threats will only keep growing in both aspects.

The Growth of MSSPs and the Efficiency of Multitenancy-Based Cyber Security Solutions

Software multitenancy is a software architecture in which a single instance of software runs on a server and serves multiple tenants. Sometimes referred to as “partitioning,” multitenant systems are highly efficient for managed service providers, often leading to lower costs for end customers and higher profits for service providers, compared to dedicated or isolated approaches.
