Against this backdrop, the firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS) is currently one of the most talked-about security trends. The research and advisory firm Gartner has defined FWaaS in its new Hype Cycle reports (Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2017 (July 2017)* and Hype Cycle for Midsize Enterprises, 2017 (July 2017)**) and names it under the category

Secucloud is checked for damaging content using a combination of powerful security mechanisms. These include anti-phishing, anti-malware, anti-bot, anti-hacking and anti-anonymiser tools. If the solution detects any threats, it blocks the harmful data packets automatically, offering users comprehensive protection.

Secucloud also provides its cloud-based IT security in the B2B space as a managed service. This is broadly similar to ECS2 but functions on the enterprise level and allows cross-selling by FWaaS dealers and resellers to their customers. This enables these firms to position themselves as managed security service providers (MSSP). They can provide their small to midsized customers with a package of high-performance security technologies that are flexible enough to scale to each customer
