A few years ago you could hardly open the tech press without reading about new service offerings — software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and so on. We don’t hear these expressions quite so often today, simply because these services are now familiar, well-established features of the IT ecosystem.
But there is one fast-growing technology that IT professionals need to know about — and be on guard against. Call it cybercrime-as-a-service (CaaS). Bad actors no longer need to rely on their own abilities and resources to carry out exploits. An expanding range of tools and technologies, from exploit kits to ransomware, are available to help cybercriminals build threats and launch attacks.
