When you’re offering software or providing technical services to clients and customers, the last thing you want is for your own website to be compromised.
For many companies working in SaaS, network security is not as high a priority as it should be. Instead of focusing on their own SaaS data security, they leave critical areas of their website undefended, opening themselves and their customers up to the potential theft of their data.
For SaaS companies, this is a particularly potent threat, as, in addition to customer data, their proprietary intellectual property is also at risk. Were that to be stolen, they could lose their competitive advantage.
