Many business owners cobble together a variety of inexpensive security options and hope for the best. Unfortunately, this leaves their company with dangerous security gaps that hackers can exploit.
This leaves both your customer information and employee information at risk — and you’re liable if either is breached.
The best solution is to license a comprehensive security package from a reputable provider. Here are some advantages to using licensed technology.
You Save Money on Infrastructure
One of the toughest things to do with any software, especially security solutions, is to stay up-to-date. New threats are discovered every day, and software upgrades are common.
It can get costly to keep up with each new software version. If you have the security solution installed on your own servers and hardware rather than using the cloud, you may even have to upgrade your equipment.
When you license security technology from an established provider, you don’t have to worry about any of that. For a simple, manageable fee, everything is included. Upgrades are part of the package, and everything is hosted in the cloud or on the provider’s hardware.
You’ll save a lot of money while maintaining much more airtight security for your business.
A man starts a chain reaction of falling dominoes. Start running processes or sabotage and subversion. An innovative solving problems. Identification weak link. System vulnerability to cyberattacks.
You Mitigate Your Business Risks
As we mentioned, hackers look for signs that a business is not keeping up with security when choosing their targets.
Don’t assume you’re too small for them to care about — no matter your size, you have confidential customer information that they can steal and sell. Some criminals target small business bank accounts because they aren’t watched as carefully as those from larger corporations.
When you use a licensed security solution, you won’t have many of the signs hackers look for, such as old versions of software, out-of-date security options, no firewalls, and more. A comprehensive security solution will reduce your company’s risk of breaches and save you thousands of dollars in dealing with problems.
Lower business risk means you can focus on doing what matters most — serving your customers!

Your Staff Can Focus on Your Customers
If you don’t have a licensed security solution, you have to DIY your security processes. That means hiring one or more people whose focus is on keeping your business secure.
Or, maybe you don’t have the budget for a full-time security expert, so you make it part of a few people’s jobs to keep an eye on things. It’s no secret that partial focus doesn’t get great results. Most people will do their primary jobs and may completely forget about their “side project.”
