The growing number of cyber-attacks and the resulting increase in regulatory requirements and consumer demand for security have spurred significant investment in security products and services. For many large enterprises and government agencies, this has also meant greater investment in IT and security staffing.
Despite facing the same challenges as a large enterprise, a majority of midmarket organizations can’t keep up with investments in security technology and staffing. These businesses are at a disadvantage, with limited skills, staff sizes, and resources. To address this imbalance, midmarket organizations must think creatively and define a new model for cybersecurity built around integrated cybersecurity technology architectures, external partners, and continuous training for business, IT, and security.
