Courtot to Discuss How Software-as-a-Service is the Driving Force Behind the Intense and Massive Consolidation in the Enterprise Software Market
San Francisco, America’s Growth Capital Information Security Conference (Argent Hotel) - February 5, 2007 - Qualys®, Inc., the leading provider of on-demand security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that CEO Philippe Courtot will present as part of a panel of security thought leaders at the 3rd Annual Information Security Conference hosted by America’s Growth Capital and Soleil Securities. Courtot will join executives from VeriSign, Websense, SecureWorks and SilverBack Technologies to discuss the rapid growth of security services and the ways in which software-as-a-service (SaaS) is changing the economics of the security services industry.
“While the Internet has made communicating and doing business globally possible, organizations are still drowning in the costs associated with acquiring, deploying, managing, integrating, securing and maintaining the hodgepodge of enterprise software solutions,” said Courtot. “The on-demand model is now recognized as the way organizations can overcome such hurdles by allowing them to ‘externalize’ their data and business processes making it a more effective and secure way to do business globally. SaaS also accelerates the ability of an organization to outsource and adapt to the ever increasing number of regulations and associated security requirements. The widespread move among global organizations to the SaaS model is the single biggest driving force behind the intense and accelerated consolidation we are now seeing taking place—a consolidation reminiscent of the mainframe consolidation decades ago.”
