Enterprise as a service (EaaS) definition
These days subscription services are everywhere and Enterprise as a service (EaaS) is no exception. In cybersecurity it operates as a service model that provides organizations and companies with individual security solutions and services as a subscription in various packages. Meaning, companies can avoid purchasing, managing and implementing various cybersecurity tools and infrastructures in-house and just buy them as a service. This gives more flexibility and lets organizations adapt to the evolving field of cybersecurity and optimize their spending.

Common Enterprise as a service (EaaS) in cybersecurity:
- Identity and access management (IAM).
Besides providing access management tools, IAM delivers scalable identity verification solutions in the cloud. That way, organizations, and enterprises can manage user identities and permissions without the overhead and intricacies of on-premises IAM solutions. Usually, these services include multi-factor authentication and features like single sign-on (SSO).
- Security information and event Management (SIEM).
As a service, SIEM offers a real-time analysis of various security alerts from hardware and apps. These benefits can help companies leverage cloud-based services and centralize the monitoring, detection, and fast response to security threats or incidents. It usually includes features like threat intelligence feeds, analytics, and applicability with other security tools or applications.
- Endpoint detection and response (EDR).
Endpoint detection and response, as a service, monitor events occurring in the network and endpoint, meaning it records and saves the information in the central database for further investigation, detection, and later reports occurring threats. By implementing EDR, companies can ensure better security across endpoints without deploying multiple EDR solutions and managing them after that.
