Comptia Security Plus Mock Test Q88

A company’s business model was changed to provide more web presence and now its ERM software is no longer able to support the security needs of the company. The current data center will continue to provide network and security services. Which of the following network elements would be used to support the new business model?

A. Software as a Service
B. DMZ
C. Remote access support
D. Infrastructure as a Service

Correct Answer: A
Section: Network Security

Explanation:
Software as a Service (SaaS) allows for on-demand online access to specific software applications or suites without having to install it locally. This will allow the data center to continue providing network and security services.

Incorrect Answers:
B, C: These options would require the ERM software to be installed locally, which is not supported
by the business model.

D: Infrastructure as a Service provides on-demand operating solutions, as well as comprehensive outsourcing options. This will take away the need for a data center.
