The size of your organization doesn’t matter when it comes to data security, whether you’re an enterprise or a small to midsize business (SMB), you need to protect what’s valuable to you.
In data security, that starts with protecting your most vulnerable devices, namely, your endpoints. Desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, and even smartphones, any device your employees use to connect to corporate resources needs to be on this list, and protecting them can be a treacherous, ever-changing scenario.
Easing IT’s burden and speeding up both deployment and updates of malware protection is critical for all business. As long as your data holds value, criminals don’t care how big your company is.
