Why web security is best served in the cloud

No business is an island. For every organisation, the ability to communicate effectively with employees, customers and business partners, and to provide its employees with access to information as and when they need it requires that it maintain an online presence and enable its employees to access information on the internet.
However, the reality today is that the internet and the web-based applications that run over it are the preferred method of attack for financially motivated hackers. In order to protect themselves from threats emanating online and to aid in ensuring that data security objectives are met, web security technologies are key defences in any organisation’s security arsenal.
