With small and midsize companies now adopting emerging technologies like cloud, IoT, AI and big data to compete with much larger enterprises, they face greater security challenges and cybersecurity risks. According to a 2019 Verizon study, 43% of cyberattacks last year targeted SMBs. To address the growing threat, many of these companies are outsourcing their security functions.
Security as a service (SECaaS) makes particular good sense for smaller companies since they usually don’t have sufficient IT resources in house to manage advanced security functions. The outsourcing option also offers the advantage of a simple payment model that’s appealing to businesses with limited financial resources. What’s more, by outsourcing security, SMBs can avoid the capital expense of investing in off-the-shelf security solutions.
Fortinet, a leading name in security, now offers a comprehensive slate of integrated security solutions for solution providers who are looking to build a security services practice.
