SaaS

SaaS (or, software-as-a-service) is a software delivery model, in which the software and its associated data are hosted remotely – in the cloud. SaaS solutions enable user access through a web browser client – promoting collaboration between remote locations, and allowing more immediate customization.

The flexibility and accessibility of SaaS solutions also enables Agile software development, and can help reduce the cost of IT maintenance and support.

At Signiant, we’ve embraced cloud-formed software design, developing the first SaaS large file transfer solutions, Media Shuttle and Flight, for the secure, accelerated movement of large digital assets. Our SaaS solutions offer the flexibility you need – allowing users to choose between on-premise or cloud data storage, within one reliable, scalable, affordable solution.
