Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Why It’s Time for Small and Medium Businesses to Ramp Up Security
Here’s the secret, while cybersecurity awareness month is an excellent opportunity to review how your small or medium-sized business approaches cybersecurity, it’s always the right time to focus on cybersecurity. Cybersecurity services for small businesses have always been a delicate balancing act between cost and services. But the very thing that prevents businesses from getting the security they need ends up being a risk itself. The reason why SMBs are the favorite targets of cybercriminals is that the criminals believe smaller businesses have fewer resources to provide the kind of security needed to defend against their attacks.
At SBT, we take a different approach by offering cutting-edge cybersecurity tools, modern workplace technologies based on Microsoft’s suite of products, and years of security experience to SMBs at a price point they can manage. Cybersecurity awareness month is a great time to ramp up security and take a closer look at how your business approaches cybersecurity. Let’s take a closer look at how a partner like SBT keeps important and sensitive business data safe and secure.
Our Small Business Cybersecurity Solutions
Why spend time and resources building an internal IT team when you gain more benefits, streamlined service and support, and tap into decades of IT and cybersecurity experience all for one monthly fee?
When you partner with SBT, here is what you get:
We’ve Got Your Back
We’ll get to the cost, but the major benefit to outsourced cybersecurity is the peace of mind that your company is in skilled, trusted hands. Fear is an important weapon hackers use, and with a dedicated cybersecurity partner in your corner, you know you always have the answer to escalating cybercrime.
Ask any business why they outsource any service, and saving money will be their answer. It is no different for IT and cybersecurity services. Cybersecurity is not a luxury option for businesses; it is a necessity. This makes it more like a utility bill. But many managed service providers base the cost of their services on a sliding scale determined by the number of workstations and times they need to be called for services. We think this is an outdated way of doing business. Our approach determines your level of service at the beginning of your agreement and doesn’t change it until the end of your agreement. And through proactive, modern workplace technology, your networks are safe from criminals and resistant to long periods of downtime. When time is money, we make sure you have more of both.
We Know What We’re Doing
Cybercrime is constantly evolving, with criminals only getting more sophisticated in the ways they attack businesses. Due to this, cybersecurity specialists like SBT have deep knowledge and understanding of the tactics, techniques, and procedures of cybercriminals to always keep your business one step ahead. It is unrealistic for organizations to host a cybersecurity team in-house that consists of these kinds of professionals. By outsourcing their cybersecurity, organizations can access specialists with extensive industry experience, knowledge, and skills.
The Flexibility to Fight Cybercrime
The cybersecurity threat landscape is always changing, and having the capacity to meet these evolutions is necessary for your SMB to safeguard its business data. If your organization was to scale up, it would have to deal with a whole host of new challenges when it comes to cybersecurity. When security is solely managed in-house, there is limited flexibility to adapt to these changes. Organizations that outsource some of their cybersecurity needs can benefit from the flexibility to quickly adapt and stay secure.
