Talking about Security-as-a-Service (popularly referred to as SaaS), it delivers cloud-hosted security services on a subscription basis. SaaS is used by various businesses falling into the small, medium, and large categories due to its primary benefits for different corporate infrastructures like avoiding the costs and maintenance of on-premise alternatives, fulfilling duties of in-house security teams, and increasing security requirements with the expansion of businesses. In simple terms, SaaS is an outsourced service in which a third party is used to manage and operate security.
COVID-19 Impact on the Global SaaS Market
As mentioned by Quince Marketing Insights (QMI), their team is keeping a close track of the COVID 19 impact on the global SaaS industry and it has witnessed that the demand for SaaS is comparatively low to the pre-COVID era. On the other hand, it has also been said that the SaaS industry will again start growing at a sustainable pace by the end of the second quarter of 2021. Most of the businesses all around the globe have been adversely affected due to the lockdown imposed by various countries to tackle the spread of COVID-19.
Raw materials’ demand and supply along with product manufacturing are disturbed on a global level and the market is almost closed in various countries until now. Industries that have incurred huge financial losses due to the pandemic are aviation, electronic industries, oil, and gas. This has resulted in poor demand for a number of products and SaaS is one of the most affected ones. All these aspects have been closely monitored in the report by QMI.
