Security from the cloudCloud-based security is helping small- and medium-sized organizations (SMBs) better manage their security needs, and meet regulatory requirements without breaking the bank.

Just like large enterprises, today’s cyber threats and stringent regulations put extreme pressure on the smallest of firms.  However with limited budgets, and no or minimal IT staff, it’s more difficult for them to deal with.

A report from Applied Research reveals that SMBs spend 2/3rds of their IT management time, and $51,000 annually on security concerns —Twice the time, and over 25 percent more money than on other IT needs.  

The Cloud “Rains” Solutions.

Software vulnerabilities show no signs of letting up, only increasing. Avoiding the cost and the complexity of traditional software is one of the reasons why SMBs today are investing in solutions like Software-as a-Service (SaaS).  This trend towards cloud and SaaS-based software is driven by the need to cut costs.

This is why SMBs are also using security and risk management applications in thecloud. From email management to disaster-recovery/business continuity, they can obtain the benefits without ever-increasing costs.

This cloud-based, on-demand approach to IT security and compliance, just like with SaaS, allows SMBs to manage vulnerabilities and meet security compliance requirements without large cash outlays.  There’s no need to spend money on expensive equipment or software that becomes obsolete in just a few years.

Security from the cloud:

  • Reduces the need to outlay cash for hardware and software.
  • Is easy to deploy and is maintained by the vendor.
  • Can be used from anywhere, at anytime.
  • Insures data is recoverable in minutes or hours.
  • Provides automatic upgrades and patches.
  • Can be acquired on a pay-as-you-go system.

Security from the cloud offers a low-cost, flexible and scalable, pay-as-you go-solution that works for SMBs.  Plus, when software vulnerabilities occur, the vendor instantaneously updates or patches the software. The burden is on the vendor, not the business—A must better solution all around.
