2 Reasons SMBs Need Your Managed Services And Security Help Now
By Jay McCall
If you’re not currently selling network security and managed services to SMBs, consider this: According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau statistics, there are more than 2 million firms with 5 to 99 employees. A recent independent study commissioned by web and email security vendor GFI Software revealed the following statistics about these businesses:
- Nearly half of IT admins reported they don’t have the capability to see which PCs or servers on their network are about to fail. For organizations with fewer than 25 employees, this number goes up to 55 percent.
- 50 percent of IT admins reported spending the equivalent of three weeks or more per year manually updating antivirus software or removing malware on users’ PCs.
- 78 percent of respondents said they would be interested in a Web-based service that enables them to manage antivirus protection on company PCs.
