The internet brings us a myriad of opportunities for connecting, socializing, and doing business. It’s helped millions of companies reach new markets, expand their offerings, and, above all, grow.
Today, Jeanne DeWitt discusses how this opportunity comes with many risks for businesses, especially small to midsize ones.
Cybercriminals understand that small to medium businesses lack the time, money, and resources to create and manage a comprehensive, ever-evolving online security strategy. In a company where every employee wears many hats, oftentimes cyber threats can sneak in, and corporate security posture can be easily overlooked.
Hackers will continue to become more sophisticated, using cutting-edge methods of breaking into networks to steal sensitive customer data. Today, bad actors use coordinated attacks that may include ransomware, social engineering, and phishing scams to access a company’s private data.
Clever schemes will exploit businesses’ human element to extract data they can sell in nefarious areas of the Internet for big dollars.
So, as an MSP, how should you protect yourself and your clients?
By partnering with a reputable, secure cloud service provider, you can fill a market need in the small to medium business space. These companies are excellent prospective clients, as they seek MSP advice and oversight to remain compliant and secure online.
As we know, a firewall, once a simple solution for Internet security, is no longer enough. Providing a comprehensive multilayered approach that includes a secure cloud solution will build confidence with your clients and provide a much-needed service offering in the marketplace.
Cloud hosting tends to be safer than on-premise infrastructure because cloud service providers have made huge investments to keep it that way. Cloud providers have more resources, capability, and dollars to invest in their offerings.
Cloud hosting incorporates:
As an MSP, you will pay a flat-rate monthly fee for a cloud environment, then take care of on-going maintenance on behalf of your clients, including ongoing security, management, and support.
