Advanced Technologies Allow for More Flexibility in Payment Solutions
, /PRNewswire/ -- In the present-day, technology has become the driving force for virtually every industry. In particular, cloud computing has become a major global industry and is primarily comprised of three main segments: infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and notably, software-as-a-service (SaaS). SaaS is a software distribution model in which a third-party provider hosts various applications. In return, the SaaS providers distribute the applications and make them available for consumers across the web. SaaS is the exterior portion that consumers see on their web page browser, however, IaaS and PaaS are the interior infrastructures that make it all possible. There are certain fundamental SaaS applications that many businesses require such as email, sales management, customer relationship management (CRM), financial management, and human resource management (HRM). Many businesses, especially smaller ones, have begun to adopt SaaS due to its flexibility and the fact that it runs on its own software within the cloud and not on another company's computers or data centers. As a result, SaaS integration reduces expenses towards hardware, maintenance, installation, and support. According to data compiled by KBV Research, the global software-as-a-service market is expected to reach by 2024 while accelerating at a CAGR of 21.4%. Snipp Interactive Inc.

Crippling Attacks Bolster the Need for Extensive Cybersecurity Protocols
, /PRNewswire/ -- An extensive layer of cybersecurity is often required for business infrastructure or government agencies in order to protect sensitive information and consumer data in the modern world. The Russian hack, which occurred late last year, and is being called the largest act of espionage in U.S. history, is an example of just how prevalent the threat is. According to a report by the Associated Press, the hack compromised federal agencies and "critical infrastructure" in a sophisticated attack that was hard to detect and will be difficult to undo, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said in an unusual, warning message. In addition, several tech companies, including Microsoft, have also commented on the hack, with the technology conglomerate explaining in a blogpost that "it's critical that we step back and assess the significance of these attacks in their full context. This is not 'espionage as usual,' even in the digital age. Instead, it represents an act of recklessness that created a serious technological vulnerability for the United States and the world. In effect, this is not just an attack on specific targets, but on the trust and reliability of the world's critical infrastructure in order to advance one nation's intelligence agency."
