Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) make the mistake of thinking that only the big guys need dedicated IT services. While it might be tempting to believe that with fewer than 100 computers in your network, there’s not much that could go wrong; nothing could be further from the truth. Your business is more vulnerable to network threats than your larger counterparts. Partly this is due to the larger number of small companies, but partly because too many SMBs fail to take the necessary precautions. Unfortunately, this can have dire consequences.
Small businesses often have less cybersecurity than their larger counterparts, and hackers and other cyber criminals know how to exploit this fact. Over 70% of all cyber-attacks on businesses happen to those with fewer than 100 people on the payroll. What’s more, of those smaller companies who are victims of cybercrime, at least half go out of business within six months.
The best way to avoid being another statistic is to stop malicious activity against your company before it starts. Actively managed firewalls, password management, spam filtering, virus monitoring, server security, and employee monitoring are all effective, proactive steps that can be taken to prevent losing everything to cybercrime.
