Protect Your Clients with Cybersecurity from Managed IT Services
Every business is at risk because of the continuous
onslaught of spyware, hackers, and viruses. Data is valuable, and businesses
have a duty to protect their customers. Maintaining an IT department with a
security expert and keeping up with the latest cyberattacks is usually too big
an expense for small
and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). Thanks to the cloud and security from managed
IT services, SMBs can afford to protect their clients.
Serious is the Threat of Cybercrime?
As crime sprees go, cybercrime is the type that tends to be
worth the risk and goes directly against the former truth of the words “crime
doesn’t pay.” Due to the very low number of prosecutions in comparison to the
number of cybercrimes, hackers are apparently encouraged to work tirelessly,
per the following statistics:
- $500 billion was the global cost of cybercrime
- Considering all the businesses that suffer loss
due to data breaches, the average cost to a business is $3.8 million.
- Compromised usernames and passwords are
associated with 63% of cyberattacks.
- The number of days a hacker resides within a
network before being detected is 146.
- Small and medium-sized businesses are targeted
by cybercriminals in 60% of all cyberattacks.
are Managed IT Services Important to Network Security?
There is a significant difference between the security a
small IT department can provide and the level of cybersecurity managed IT
services provide. In the simplest of terms, the personnel required to protect
data is more than SMBs can typically afford.
Managed IT services provide teams of professionals, including experts in cybercrime, to protect customer details and other business data.
