SMB organizations today face a constantly evolving set of potential threats, from data security breaches to downtime from unexpected events. Business owners and decision makers are asking questions like:
- With our growing dependence on the cloud, how do we keep our data protected?
- As my data grows, how can I make sure it’s being backed up in a cost-effective manner?
- If an unexpected event occurs, like a fire or flood, how long would it take to get our business back up and running? What would downtime cost our business?
- How do we keep up with the ever-changing technology landscape?
