Small and medium sized businesses face exactly the same security threats and must comply with the same regulations as larger organizations. However the complexity and cost of security solutions can deter business owners from taking sufficient steps to secure their valuable resources.
In a recent survey by Celestix, 47 percent of respondents cited complexity as the biggest obstacle to rolling out an authentication solution while 29 percent of respondents cited cost as their biggest issue. These statistics highlight the fact that until security technologies become more simplified they will continue to exclude the SMB market and leave it exposed to a multitude of threats.
Small and medium enterprises operate across all sectors so the nature of their business is diverse. The nature of the SMB market is competitive as businesses look cultivate their niche and expand. The impact of a security breach can be catastrophic for any such organization.
