The Opportunity in Cyber Security

Cyber Security spend is predicted to exceed $1 Trillion over the next five years from 2017 to 2021, compared to 2004 in which the Cyber Security market was worth only 0.35% of this.*1

Shockingly, in 2015 65% of all targeted attacks struck small and mid-sizes organisations*2 and with the rapidly growing use of Cloud services and the disappearing perimeters between internal and external networks, it is now more vital than ever that we safeguard our businesses against the ever growing threats and attacks associated with a data centric, interconnected, mobile workforce.

By lifting your security offering into the cloud, you are enabled to deliver a truly scalable architecture that allows flexible working on an on-demand basis, whilst capitalising on the predicted market growth opportunity along the way.

In 2016 we saw multiple high profile data breaches that took the UK by storm, from giant mobile phone providers putting millions of their customers at risk with a publically known database breach*3  to the popular consumer finance wing of British supermarket giant compromising 40,000+ accounts, with over half having money stolen as a direct result*4. It is not only the shame and responsibility that companies must now address, but also the large financial penalties associated with security failings that come with it.

Businesses are leaving it too late to make these integral changes to their core strategies and structures and with security breaches in the public interest, your customers are beginning to prioritise security offerings of their potential SaaS providers over service alone.

We can no longer consider Cyber Security an afterthought when purchasing a mobile/connected device.

The responsibility of prohibiting attacks falls directly on the shoulders of the IT reseller, and it is our duty as a leading Cloud Service and Software Providers to simplify that requirement and enable you to maximise your revenue opportunities along the way.

The benefits of moving to a Cloud Based security offering means that security services are always up to date, easily managed and offering advanced protection to users anywhere, around the clock. With a low cost of ownership and no need for a dedicated IT resource, the Cloud offers both you and your customers a flexible, scalable offering that can be deployed in a matter of minutes.
