Virtualization and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), are too many security threats to be addressed with a sub-par security position. Small business owners are familiar with the horror stories of one phishing link infecting a whole business system. This embarrasses the employee and leaves the business with very limited options to address the threat.
Managed Security Services: Cybersecurity challenges for small businesses
Smaller businesses have less IT resources than larger organizations, which can limit their ability to provide 24/7 threat monitoring. According to a recent survey, less than 25% of SMBs have a cybersecurity specialist or department.
Management of cybersecurity is difficult with a small workforce. This makes it more challenging for small businesses to invest in cybersecurity as their network grows and new threats emerge.
This results in a mix of cybersecurity tools that are not easily shared with threat information, and are difficult to manage in an efficient and unified way.
Inefficient management and lack of interoperability among products can lead to large gaps in cybersecurity coverage. This is where a managed IT security provider like SpartanTec, Inc. can help. Outsourcing cybersecurity to managed providers of IT services like SpartanTec, Inc. can be a great way to reap the benefits, such as:
Monitoring and data protection round-the-clock, seven days a week, 365 jours a year, to detect and eliminate threats before they cause havoc on the network.
With customer-specific security protocols, you can provide more effective protection and ensure consistent system infection prevention. These protocols streamline vulnerability patches and eliminate system infections. They are compatible with virtual networks and other hardware.
A managed security provider makes small businesses more productive by removing the complexity of cybersecurity management from top IT departments. This allows them to spend more time on supporting employees and strategic technology initiatives.
Cost savings — Although adding another vendor to your business’s expenses might seem like a burden at first, the savings that can be derived from preventing a security breach and malware attack are substantial. A managed security provider can help you align your cybersecurity solution to your budget and business needs.
