[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World


Definition - What does Cloudware mean?

Cloudware refers to software that is built, deployed, delivered and accessed entirely from a remote Web server or from the "cloud," a remote Web server. It is a software delivery model that provides software over the Internet.

Cloudware can also be referred to as a Web-based application, or SaaS in terms of service model. Cloudware sometimes also refers to software that enables the construction and delivery of software solutions and services from the cloud.

Techopedia explains Cloudware

Cloudware is primarily any software that runs or is delivered from a remote Web server under a subscription-based delivery model. The Web server is located and hosted by a service provider or software vendor that enables users to sign in and access the software. Cloudware doesn’t require end users or subscribers to purchase the software. Instead, they are charged a monthly recurring fee or on a pay-per-usage basis. Moreover, because cloudware is hosted and managed by the vendor, the end users receive only the most updated, secure and reliable version of the software.
