Small and midsize business security is big business

Small and midsize companies (<250 employees) drive global economy, accounting for 99% of all global enterprises and two thirds of employment. There are currently over 203 million SMBs worldwide. It’s a business with a huge potential.

Digital attacks targeted at the smaller end of business are also on the rise, and the need for small business protection s is imminent. Largely under- or unprotected, they are the digital villain’s dream. Together with our partner network, F-Secure stands in the vanguard and leads the front to safe business and business confidentiality.

Small and midsize companies drive global economy, accounting for 99% of all global enterprises and two thirds of employment. There are currently over 203 million SMBs world- wide,andwiththenumberofcompaniesandem- ployees on a steady rise. Digital attacks target- ed at the smaller end of business are also on the rise,whichmeansthattheneedforprotectionde- signedspecificallyforSMBsisimminent. Small and midsize businesses also drive the shift of business into the digital era. We live in a col- laborations world where companies extend be- yond the office, move mobile and shift towards the cloud. Closely knitted with personal use of technology, the BYO trends blur the line between workandleisure,andmoreandmorepeoplework wheneverworkpresentsitself. Agile organizations and employees know and expect to BYOD (Bring your own device) & BYOA (Bring your own application), collaborate and share company assets in the cloud, set up office onthego,andwantprivacywiththeirsecurity. Increasing information, connections and the range of devices has indelible effects on the way we work. In 2014, half of all small and mid- size companies were already using cloud ser- vices, over 40% deployed mobile technology in theireverydaywork,andone-thirdwereplanning to invest heavily in mobility.
