More Security Services Opportunities From SMBs?

Businesses Are Spending More Money For Security

All but 7 percent of IT decision makers surveyed said they planned to spend more on security this year, with 63 percent saying their businesses would shell out an extra 1 to 19 percent, while 27 percent said 20 to 49 percent.

In a presentation earlier this year to mid-market IT leaders, a Gartner analyst said mid-market companies should consider looking outside for managed security services to do what they can't in securing their infrastructures. "Unless you absolutely have to do it on premise, I urge you not to," Mike Cisek said at Midsize Enterprise Summit East, sponsored by ITBestOfBreed's parent, The Channel Company.
