This post examines the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a cloud security system, not in terms of the actual dollars and cents cost of a system, but in terms that will help you identify and understand the many hidden costs associated with accurately calculating the TCO for cloud security.

This, in turn, should help you make an informed decision as you go about selecting a cloud security solution that is appropriate for your organization.
Note: We use “build” in a broad sense in this post, from building a system from scratch, to leveraging open source tools, to creating integrations among multiple point solutions. Read more “Calculating TCO: The Real Cost of Cloud Security”
