Security as a service refers to the practice of delivering traditional security applications as an Internet-based service, on-demand, to consumers and businesses.
It is an example of the everything as a service trend and shares many of the common characteristics, whereby security applications are delivered as a service using the Internet as the delivery mechanism. 
In the consumer market, the most common of these are the “anti-“ suite, including anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-spyware.
In the enterprise market, Security as a Service refers to the delivery of second-tier infrastructure components, such as log management and asset tracking, in a service-oriented fashion, also leveraging the Internet as the delivery and access mechanism.
