Many SMB owners underestimate their data-security risk because they believe their business does not collect enough data to draw the attention of hackers or cyber-criminals. Yet, in many cases, nothing could be further from the truth. Often, SMBs collect a great deal of valuable data.
Cyber-criminals are well aware of the value of the data collected by SMBs and they are specifically targeting small and medium-sized businesses. According to a recent research report from Keeper and Ponemon, around 50% of small-to-medium businesses had their security compromised in the past year. In fact, the problem is significant enough that cyber security is now a top priority for the House Committee on Small Business.
SMBs are not just vulnerable to hackers and cyber-criminals. Like most other businesses, they are also at risk for a physical break-in or a natural disaster. Whatever the immediate risk, your on-location data center is likely less secure than Oxford Networks’ Cloud.
