Cloud Security of Small to Medium Businesses
Cybersecurity is not just a large enterprise problem. Nearly 40% of all targeted cyberattacks take aim at businesses with fewer than 250 employees. As small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) migrate their IT operations and applications to the cloud to benefit from the efficiencies of cloud technologies, they become exposed to a new set of security vulnerabilities. All companies must find the proper balance between securing data and running their business efficiently and profitably. It is estimated there are 1,500 SMBs for every one large business in the U.S.
The ability for these organizations to simply route their Internet traffic to Global Velocity’s Securio Cloud Managed Service and receive full Information-Centric Security functionality is unique and unprecedented. With Global Velocity’s solution, SMBs, non-profits and similar organizations will have access to full-featured content control in an affordable, easy to use SaaS model.
Beyond the data small and medium enterprises must legally protect, is an interesting variety of information that should be protected. Examples include:
- Intellectual Property
- Trade Secrets
- Engineering and product details
- Source Code
- Credit Card - Payment Card Industry (PCI)
- Customer, Employee, Shareholder - Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
- Medical – HIPAA
- Business Operations
- Customer information
- Private financial statements and records
- Performance reviews and compensation reports
Additionally, more and more of this confidential information is at risk as cloud computing adoption accelerates.
